The League returns for Season 3 tonight, October 6th, with the hilarious new episode Lockout. And as is true of any sport, there are some winners and some losers when it comes to the guys and gals that make up this terrific ensemble of iconic modern day characters. To celebrate the anxiously awaited return of The League, we talked with three of the show's big losers.
Jason Mantzoukas plays Rafi, aka El BroLo El Cunado, and though he is beloved by The League's legion of hardcore followers, he is less favored by those he believes to be his best friends. In tonight's episode, he will team up with Dirty Randy (Seth Rogen) to shoot a porno in loser Andre's (Paul Scheer) apartment. Andre is just coming off of his Sacko win, for arriving in last place in last year's Fantasy League tournament. After several months of abuse by the rest of the team, he gets his final punishment tonight. Then, there is Kevin (Stephen Rannazzisi). His wife has gotten a job, leaving him with the responsibilities of running a one-child household, she has joined the league and no longer serves as his consultant, and she refuses to give him the second child that he wants, bringing a dog into their relationship instead.Read More
