The League cast can't keep it together in complete series gag reel

Exclusive video from seven seasons worth of outtakes included on the collector’s DVD set

Posted on

FX

Over seven seasons of The League, it’s easy to lose track of all the awful things that the characters have said and done. The show began with them having children race to determine their draft order and ended with the group waiting 18 years to tell Andre that Pete was actually his son’s father.

Unsurprisingly, the insults and debauchery were too much at times even for the cast. In an exclusive gag reel compiled from the show’s entire run, the actors try their best to keep straight faces while doing everything from debating the merits of naming a dog Frank Sinatra to coming up with a very disgusting idea for a CSI spin-off. The behind-the-scenes look highlights the edgy comedy that the show was known for, including Nick Kroll losing it repeatedly during one of his many classic Ruxin jokes about Kevin (Steve Rannazzisi) and Pete being lovers, and Rafi (Jason Mantzoukas) making Ruxin’s life a living hell.

This gag reel was made exclusively for EW, but more gag reel footage will appear on both the complete series DVD set and the season 7 DVD set, titled The League: The Final Fantasy. Both sets are available on June 14 and will feature deleted scenes, extended and unrated episodes, and more.
