Main Characters[edit | hide | hide all]

Liz Lemon[edit | hide]

Played By: Tina Fey

The Show Runner of TGS who pretty much has to babysit everyone else.

Jack Donaghy[edit | hide]

Played By: Alec Baldwin

GE Executive who regularly calls for changes on TGS.

Tracy Jordan[edit | hide]

Played By: Tracy Morgan

The famous movie star that Jack brings on to TGS. Played by Tracy Morgan.

Jack: Tracy, we think your spending has gotten out of control.
Tracy: (while wearing a shirt made of money) Give me an example.


Tracy I've put more money into this than my money pit in Conneticut.
Jack You have a house in Conneticut.
Tracy . . . no.

  • Ultimate Job Security: He has it because of his celebrity status.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: After starring in a tough social drama, he can't get anyone to view him as crazy anymore, much to his annoyance. "I can't stop the horrible respect people have for me."

Jenna Maroney[edit | hide]

Played By: Jane Krakowski

TGS's crazy, attention loving star.

Kenneth Parcell[edit | hide]

Played By: Jack McBrayer

The NBC page who is a Wide-Eyed Idealist despite how he's treated by the staff of TGS.

Tracey: Ken, you don't wanna be a page forever!
Kenneth: Who said I've been alive forever?

Pete Hornberger[edit | hide]

Played By: Scott Adsit

The beleaguered producer with a big family and a fatalistic outlook.

  • The Archer: Go figure.
  • Bald of Awesome
  • Creepy Child: One of Pete's kids is frequently referenced as "the creepy one"
  • The Cynic: Arguably the most jaded in the entire cast of TGS
  • Deadpan Snarker: To Liz at times.
  • Jaded Washout: Definitely jaded, though not exactly a washout. Although he did get denied the chance to participate in the olympics, and a DUI prevented him from being a Congressman. He still manages to keep his sanity and tends not to relive his past glory.
  • Not So Above It All: Has been becoming increasingly unstable as the series goes on.
  • Only Sane Employee: Slightly less sane than Liz (though Your Mileage May Vary, as he has fewer freakouts), but that's just because he's far more cynical
  • Parental Abandonment: Inverted. Pete confesses to wanting to run away from his wife with each of her seven pregnancies, but he always comes back.
