Mark Duplass as Pete | The League on FX
Mark Duplass plays "Pete," a troublemaker who’s charming enough to talk his way out of 70% of the messes he gets himself and his friends into. Pete has successfully rebelled against adulthood: he may be a divorced man-child with an uninspiring job–but in fantasy football he’s a stud, lording over the League with ease and élan. The only thing he loves more than winning is rubbing it in– and thus has declared himself “Sacko Commissioner.” But this season the Sacko Commissioner faces his greatest challenge: Taco. How do you punish a guy who hardly knows he’s in a League. And things will get even rougher for Pete when his ex, Meegan (Leslie Bibb), comes back into the picture...
