FX’s “The League” Starring Duplass Brother Mark Gets Thumbs Up

FX's "The League" Starring Duplass Brother Mark Gets Thumbs Up

Mark Duplass is having a good year. Along with a feature in production with Fox Searchlight, he also is co-starring in FX’s new comedy, “The League.”

Variety calls it:

“A crude but consistently funny half-hour that appears to be a bull’s-eye with the channel’s male-skewing audience. Like TBS’ “My Boys.”

The topnotch ensemble includes Pete (Mark Duplass), who consistently wins the fantasy league crown while suffering through a quarrelsome marriage; Kevin (Stephen Rannazzisi), whose wife Jenny (Katie Aselton) secretly helps develop his team’s draft strategies; the sexually frustrated Ruxin (Nick Kroll), whose wife (“My Name Is Earl’s” Nadine Velazquez) is withholding sex after having a baby; and Andre (Paul Scheer), a plastic surgeon whom the other guys constantly abuse.

“The League” also features Mark’s wife (and co-star of “Puffy Chair”) Katie Aselton. Awesome.
