  • The best thing about the show. -Joltman 07:55, 17 January 2008 (EST)
  • Is he really a 'supporting' actor? He seems to be just as in the fore-front as Tina Fey. --Davidscarter 12:09, 9 February 2008 (EST)
    • Our definition of lead and supporting are based on the billing in the opening credits and he's last billed which makes him supporting. --The-jam 15:28, 9 February 2008 (EST)

  • This year, I'd almost say I'd have to vote for the 30 Rock actors would have it locked in for this category if it weren't for Merchant. He didn't get much screen time in the first season, but for the second, he really ran with the sleazy, sniveling, dimwitted, utterly incompetent character he had set up and delivered some of the season's most memorable moments, from, "Oh, look, a midget! Can I fit in your house?" to masturbating to a pen. -- JCaesartalk 03:53, 19 January 2008 (EST)

  • Baldwin has received so much praise for the show (and rightfully so) that it's almost easy to overlook Morgan's comparatively more manic performance, but he provides the perfect counterbalance to allow the show to spin into its complete absurdity while still maintaining its realism. No matter how bizarre or off-the-wall thing Tracey is doing, pitching a movie where he plays Thomas Jefferson or arguing with a pigeon, Morgan is so committed and matter-of-fact that you actually believe this is a guy who's completely involved in arguing with a pigeon. It gives Tina Fey the perfect character to be a foil against and Baldwin the perfect character to be a counterbalance to, and that's a great deal of the secret of the show's success.
