Trivia / The League

  • Actor Allusion - In the pilot, Taco attempts to draft a player from the Calgary Stampeders. Jon Lajoie, who plays Taco, is the only Canadian actor in the league.
    • The use of "frittata" in place of "retarded" comes from a joke in Nick Kroll's standup.
    • In "Flowers for Taco", Taco is revealed to be fluent in French when he stops smoking weed. In real life Jon Lajoie is from Quebec and is fluent in French.
  • Channel Hop: FX moved The League, along with Legit and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, to the comedy-focused spinoff channel FXX in fall of 2013.
  • Playing Against Type: For Jay Duplass (Pete), who normally does more "mumblecore" indie movies.
