Nelson Franklin was in both New Girl and Veep. Obviously this means that Robby was so destroyed by Jess’ rejection that he no longer valued himself in any way as a human being. He sought out fulfillment as a dunk tank victim, a puddle bridger who dove into puddles so that rich ladies didn’t have to step in them, a punching bag filler, and a vomit mopper at a frat house, but he couldn’t find any job that made him feel worthless enough to satisfy him, until he met Roger Furlong. Roger Furlong liked the name Robby too much and his mom once dated a guy named Will who smelled like cheese and didn’t buy him a hotdog when they went to a baseball game, causing Furlong to hate the name Will for many years. Robby legally changed his name to Will so that Roger Furlong could properly hate him.
Dan Bakkedahl was in both 30 Rock and Veep. Obviously this means that Roger Furlong was taking his bratty, disappointing children on a tour of NBC in 30 Rock S1E18 when he hid from them so he could have just a nip of fresh air (Fresh Air® is a brand of gin sold in indiscreet little baggies that a parent can easily hide inside their wallet or purse and use when their hell spawn get a bit too hellish) in the dress rehearsal of an unaired roast of President Bush. He realized that politicians could say whatever they want and be as mean as they want to everyone they work with, so he quit his job as a Sunday school teacher and ran for congress in Ohio.
Adam Scott was in both Parks and Recreation and Veep. Obviously this means that Ben Wyatt was so funny on the campaign trail that he was offered a job by NBC before he even took office. He declined, but since he had achieved all his goals as President in one term, there was no need for a second. With a fresh supply of free time, and with Leslie busy as first woman chancellor of the Directing Viable Data Analytics foundation, which sought to use big data to end world hunger, cure cancer, and formulate the perfect multinationally adored waffle recipe, Ben saw an opportunity. While Leslie was away during the day working at DVDA, Ben could stay home with their adopted children and biological grandchildren. When Leslie was at home, Ben could take some personal time to himself and host the Tonight show in Veep S6E9.
Matt Walsh was in both Veep and The League. Obviously this means that Mike McLintock had another life before he got into politics. He was an ordinary suburban dad who liked grilling and fishing and watched baseball, but then his son became known as the Oracle in The League S1E1 and everything changed. He was torn between his jealousy at being overshadowed by his son and his twofold desire for his son to be successful and to make money off this skill. The constant internal struggle eventually ripped him in half and he went on a bizarre spree inside a Wholefoods shoving every single stalk of Asparagus into his butt and running around the store screaming (for some reason) “ARUGULA ARUGULA ARUGULA.” When he left the psychiatric hospital, Mike had found a new zen approach to life through which he can take whatever life presents to him with peace and understanding. With his newfound power, Mike went into the most stressful job in the world (for a normal person): Selena Meyer’s press secretary.
Anna Chlumsky was in both 30 Rock and Veep. Obviously this means that Amy Brookheimer was in a 12 step program to conquer her addiction, politics. Part of that was not associating with people who potentially trigger her addiction, which is why she got a job at the furthest thing from politics: NBC. A little known fact is that Amy Brookheimer is actually short for Amliz Brookheimlemler, so she decided to shorten her name in a different way for her new job and went by Liz Lemler. When Floyd left her, she had lost her rock and the one person who kept her from spiraling back into her addiction, and it was only a matter of time before she got back into politics.
Paul Scheer is in both Veep and The league. Obviously this means that Andre has a thing for Jane McCabe so he traded free plastic surgery for a job as a producer on CBS This Morning so he could spend a lot of time with her seeing him in a place of authority, since it’s an established fact that 78% of women are more likely to get romantically involved with a man if she sees him as a figure of authority.
Gary Cole was in both 30 Rock and Veep. Obviously this means that Kent Davison keeps his life extremely regimented and in a tight reign because if he slips for even a minute, he’ll be back to making margaritas for breakfast and singing caught crabs in paradise with the other Crabcatchers
Patton Oswalt was in both Veep and Community. Obviously this means that before he went into politics and could grope freely, Teddy Sykes slaked his thirst for holding dicks by being an STD nurse back home in Greendale. He had to leave after it was discovered that in his twelve years on the job, he had never done an actual STD test for a man. Instead, he did what he called a “Grope Test” where he would give a vigorous grope to a man and estimate their health by the feel and density of their dongs.
Craig Cackowski was in both Community and Veep. Obviously this means that Annie never bought herself a shoe safe and was hit again by a shoenapper. Officer Cackowski was severely injured when, while pursuing the thief on foot, he was struck in the head by a cork wedge. Unable to continue his work as a police officer, he went to work in politics to push his agenda. He takes a job with the nations first female Vice President because he sees her as the nation’s best chance to champion shoe safety.
Dan Bakkedahl was in both Community and Veep. Obviously this means that the worldwide cabal of air conditioner repair funded Roger Furlong’s campaign, even while he ran on a platform of environmental activism. Because he took money from Big Freon, now they own him, but he has to work quietly for them. In addition to surreptitiously undermining any bills that would hurt the organization, he spends time working as Vice-Vice Dean of Air Conditioning Repair at Greendale Community College and tries to recruit the best and brightest into the shadowy world where he works.
