Thirty Rock

Main Characters

Liz Lemon

Played By: Tina Fey

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

Jack Donaghy

Played By: Alec Baldwin

GE Executive who regularly calls for changes on TGS.

Tracy Jordan

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

Played By: Jane Krakowski

TGS's crazy, attention loving star.

Kenneth Parcell

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

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.

Frank Rossitano

Played By: Judah Friedlander

Cerie Xerox

James 'Toofer' Spurlock

Warren "Grizz" Griswold

Played By: Grizz Chapman

Walter "Dot Com" Slattery

Played By: Kevin Brown

Part of Tracy Jordan's entourage.


Played By: Mauilik Pancholy

JD Lutz

Recurring GE/NBC/Kabletown employees

Danny Baker

Played By: Cheyenne Jackson

  • Canada, Eh??
  • Out of Focus: Probably due to Tracy Morgan's violently homophobic rant, considering the actor is openly gay.
  • One Steve Limit: His name is actually Jack, but Jack Donaghy forces him to change it to Danny.

Don Geiss

Played By: Rip Torn

Josh Girard

Kathy Geiss

Played By: Marceline Hugot
