Making Jane Krakowski look stunning is not difficult. Making the men of "30 Rock" look funny is.Costume designer Tom Broecker, who has been with "30 Rock" since the beginning, succeeds.Among the more challenging actors for whom to find clothes that fit are Tracy's (Tracy Morgan) buddies, Grizz and Dot Com (Grizz Chapman, Kevin Brown)."One is 6-10, and one is 6-8," Broecker tells Zap2it. "Here is the thing: With this guy, part of the problem -- the speed with which the show has to happen, we are at the mercy of what is made by manufacturers. Sometimes we have the luxury of making the crazy stuff. We are at the mercy of the Internet and four stores in New York. Plus-size clothing for men and women is virtually impossible."Having been with the show since its pilot, Broecker has accommodated the evolution of characters. "When we started this, they were the backups to Tracy, less noticeable except... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/01/30-rock-alec-baldwin-taking-jack-donaghys-wardrobe-with-him.html

'30 Rock': Octavia Spencer May Be Crazier Than Tracy

Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer proved to be a real handful on the latest episode of " 30 Rock ." Tracy brought her on to play the lead in his Harriet Tubman biopic, but Spencer proved a real handful. She was as outrageous as Tracy -- and even had a female version of his entourage with Mizz and Dot Gov. What Tracy realized was that he had to handle Octavia the same way Liz has handled him for the past seven years, so he borrowed her hair and did his best impression. All that did, though, was inspire Octavia to new levels of lunacy. But the entire experienced helped Liz realize something important. She wanted a baby, but was afraid to take on an older one. She thought she might not be able to handle a child with an already-developed personality. After hearing Tracy talk about how she'd been managing him -- and isn't he a lot like a toddler in the way his brain works -- she realized she was more than capable of taking a child who's six or seven-years old. The final season of "30 Rock" continues every Thursday at 8 p.m. EST on NBC. It all comes to a close with a one-hour series finale at 8 p.m. EST on January 31. TV Replay scours the vast television landscape to find the most interesting, amusing, and, on a good day, amazing moments, and delivers them right to your browser. //feeds.huffingtonpost.com/~r/HP/Entertainment/~3/4JBTjGUoRU4/30-rock-octavia-spencer-video_n_2453089.html
