30 rock jack dating
Some fans of NBC’s 30 Rock really wanted Liz Lemon and Jack Donaghy to end up together by the time the series ended, but they didn’t, and according to star Alec Baldwin, it’s because everyone knew better.
Baldwin recent took part in a Reddit AMA, in which he was asked why Jack and Tina Fey’s Liz didn’t end up together, and here’s how he put it.
Additionally, Liz has an ongoing relationship with a man she thought might be her "Future Husband" later in the season.
During the 2009–2010 upfront presentation on May 19, 2009, NBC announced that the show's fourth season, following the precedent set by its third season, would premiere several weeks behind the rest of the network's Thursday night lineup following a multi-week run of Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday specials.
While Liz was an open book, Jack hid behind a front, layer-by-layer revealing his true self through various fits and freakouts as an insecure, emotionally vulnerable man-boy – much like Baldwin.
Her openness and innate goodness no doubt rubbed off on Jack, and his actions spoke louder than words: When Liz married the sweet, supportive Criss Cross (James Marsden), Jack rushed to City Hall to bear witness to their wedding; when she needed someone to pick her up from oral surgery, he stopped what he was doing to take her home; while watching an embarrassing phone-sex commercial from Liz’s past where she’s shown suggestively eating a pizza, Jack dissolves into a fit of giggles; what other overlord-CEOs would break character to goof off in the, Liz knows he's ALWAYS got her back.
For some, enjoyment of any TV series is inherently tied to the main characters getting romantic.
Everyone in the TV biz knows this, which is why the most popular series hinge on “will they? ” storylines at some point, many more blatant than others.
Jack has a clear affinity for Liz, despite their ever-present conflicting moral values, which is a frequent source of friction in their relationship.PHOTOS: TV Swan Songs He's also the same guy who lobbed cutting insults Liz's direction, frequently picking apart her appearance and other perceived flaws. But deep down, Jack and Liz were more alike than they seemed: the two shared a strong sense of purpose; Alpha-level ambition; dark humor; an anxiety propelled by fear of failure and loss of control.He once described her as a "New York third-wave feminist, college-educationed, single-and-pretending-to-be-happy-about-it, over-scheduled, undersexed, you buy any magazine that says 'healthy body image' on the cover and every two years you take up knitting for ... Despite their differences, Liz and Jack were intellectual equals even as he treated her like a lesser peon.In "The Head and the Hair," he says he put himself through an unidentified Boston-area college (possibly Harvard Business School) by working as a swan boat operator.(His time as a swan boat operator is alluded to again in Season 1, Episode 4 when he mentions hitting someone with a motor boat.) Donaghy attended Princeton University at some point.
