Score Your Own Copy of The Complete Second Season DVD, Available Oct. 4
Fantasy football provides an outlet for good-natured competition and camaraderie between friends and colleagues, but that’s not always the case. Deception, one-upmanship, and win-at-all-costs mentality rule the day on the virtual gridiron and then extend into personal relationships, marriages and the workplace, in THE LEAGUE: THE COMPLETE SECOND SEASON, arriving on Blu-ray and DVD October 4. To get you ready for the release, our friends at Fox Home Entertainment compiled an overview of the cast and their “League” characters.
Mark Duplass portrays Pete Eckhart, and originally hails from New Orleans, LA. Mark is an accomplished actor, director, producer and screenwriter. Mark has written, directed and produced numerous films with his brother, Jay, including The Puffy Chair and Cyrus. Mark is married to his co-star, Katie Aselton. Mark’s character, Pete, is the three-time champion of the league. Currently single, he has tried meeting women on several occasions, and has a small reputation in the league for tricking his friends into making bad player trades.
Stephen Rannazzisi, who plays Kevin MacArthur, is originally from Smithtown, NY, and has previously appeared in Paul Blart: Mall Cop and “Samantha Who?,” and is currently on the NBC show “Love Bites.” Stephen’s character, Kevin, is a district attorney and the league commissioner. He has used his influence in the DA’s office to garner good trades and draft positions from Ruxin, in return for reduced sentences for Ruxin’s clients. Kevin often takes his football knowledge from his wife, Jenny.
Nick Kroll hails from Rye, NY and is an actor and comedian. Nick is probably best known for appearing in the shows “Best Week Ever,” “Cavemen,” and “Sit Down, Shut Up.” Nick was also a contributing writer to “Chappelle’s Show” and “Human Giant.” Nick’s character, Rodney (thought he prefers to be called Ruxin), is a Jewish product-liability attorney who will go to great lengths to do well in the league, but has shown an eagerness to please his wife that surpasses his love for the league. Ruxin won the league championship at the end of season 2.
Paul Scheer is from Huntington, NY, and plays Andre Nowzik. Paul is a comedian, actor, writer and producer, and has appeared in many projects including, “Best Week Ever,” “30 Rock,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Yo Gabba Gabba,” Year One, and “Human Giant” (which he also co-created). Paul’s character, Andre, is a rich plastic surgeon whose naïveté makes him the brunt of many jokes. He won the league championship at the end of season 1. Andre has hosted the last two drafts; the first season he hosted at his house and the second season in Las Vegas.
Jon Lajoie is a man of many talents, one of which is portraying Taco MacArthur. Hailing from Montreal, Quebec, Jon has gained fame as an actor, comedian, rapper, singer, musician and Internet celebrity. Jon’s character, Taco, is Kevin’s younger brother. Taco is perpetually stoned, and an unemployed musician; He doesn’t care or know much about football, but has won the League Championship at least once. Taco takes martial arts, and is studying the art of naginatajutsu. He means well, but his acts of kindness usually have disastrous results.
Kate Aselton, who plays Jenny MacArthur, was born in Milbridge, ME. During her teen years, she competed in pageants, eventually becoming the first runner-up at Miss Teen USA 1995. Currently, Kate is a triple threat, directing, producing and acting in a number of different projects. Kate is married to co-star Mark Duplass. Kate’s character, Jenny, is Kevin’s wife. Kate helps Kevin run his team with great zeal, though she was not an actual league member until the end of season 2 (not for lack of trying!).
