Well how cool is this?!? MA Senator Elizabeth Warren was in town! On Thursday she spent time at Kaufman Astoria Studios to film a cameo in Amazon’s Alpha House. According to Vulture, “she’s pretty much playing herself.” More on her involvement:

In her scene, she crosses paths with Senator Gil John Biggs (star John Goodman) in the green room for CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper. She’s signing copies of her (real-life) book, A Fighting Chance, for a fan and also signs one for him, with a sly note that she’s not going to be running for president. More than any other political show on television, Alpha House makes constant winks to real-life politics. So, this is confirmation that Elizabeth Warren will not be running for president, right??

She also took a tour of the rest of the set after she was done. Apparently she loved seeing the version of her workplace on the KAS soundstage, “It’s great fun to come here and see the alternate reality to the one I live in Washington. The one I live in Washington isn’t nearly so clever.”

We love hearing about this kind of stuff!
