We had taken that straight from Brian’s life and put it into Gregory’s character and when we brought the sketch back to the studio, all the writers are on the sketch call with the network,” Halpern said. . “Everybody in the studio was like, ‘God, that makes this guy so obnoxious.’ If he doesn’t like food, how will he be the romantic lead? Who would ever love this person? And we’re all watching Brian. Gregory’s disdain for pizza may be shocking, but that’s just one of the things that sets him apart. The EPs revealed that they wanted to take a different approach to the character as a romantic lead. “We had always talked about the fact that we didn’t want Gregory to just be Jim from The Office. We want Gregory to be that weirdo that you love the more you get to know him,” Halpern added. “He’s got all these weird quirks. He’s not like your classic leader.
