On ’30 Rock,’ Maulik Pancholy stands ready to defend Jack Donaghy from all gate crashers! (That means you, Liz Lemon!)

It’s war between TGS Show producer Liz Lemon and NBC suit Jack Donaghy’s assistant Jonathan!

Tensions have been escalating between the two for some time as they compete for the attention of their boss — although it would seem as if they’re interested in him for two completely different things.

As Jonathan, Maulik Pancholy’s moments on the show have shown how much an actor can do in a confined space; have we ever seen Jonathan anywhere beyond the 20 feet or so path between his desk and Jack’s? Does he sleep there? Even Kenneth the NBC Page has a demonstrated life outside of the network, right?

If somehow you’ve never seen it, NBC’s “30 Rock” airs every Thursday night at 8:30 p.m. Do your funny bone a favor and check it out. Right after this interview.

There is certainly a little piece of me that is obsessive/compulsive the way Jonathan is. I was a total perfectionist growing up.”
