Grizz, played by Grizz Chapman, is a member of Tracy's entourage. He is almost always seen with fellow entourage member Dot Com. A recurring character during the first two seasons, he is credited as a series regular in seasons three and four. Within the entourage, Grizz is charged with "sitting on" Tracy when he is overstimulated, in addition to a very fluid list of other responsibilities. In Season 1 Grizz was apparently Tracy's financial manager, and in Season 5 he was suggested to be Tracy and Adam West's talent manager. Despite his calm demeanor, Grizz is shown to be a romantic and deeply emotional man. "Sexual history" between Grizz and Liz Lemon (whom he alone addresses as 'Beth') is referred to in several episodes. The two are seen passionately kissing at Kenneth's party in "Greenzo." Despite their history, he cajoles her into serving as his "woman of honor" (i.e., female best man) in his wedding to his fiancée, Feyoncé. In "Kidney Now!" it is revealed that Tracy and Grizz attended high school together. Grizz is the most physically imposing member of Tracy's entourage and the cast; referencing their long friendship in "Argus," Tracy tells him "I've known you since you were six feet tall!"
Grizz is portrayed as an intellectual, and is seen in season five episode two reading both Urban Fervor, the sequel to The Rural Juror, both written by John Grisham's brother Kevin. Grizz also reads George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire and expressed shock at a climactic moment toward the end of A Game of Thrones. Grizz and Dotcom are both members of a history club that sometimes meets in Liz's office.
In the season four finale "I Do Do", Grizz marries his fiancé, who is named Feyoncé, in studio 6H as the combined weight of their families was too much for the Sheraton ballroom they had originally planned on. The wedding is a source of tension throughout season four because of Grizz's choice to make Dotcom his best man, even though Dotcom is in love with Feyoncé (He even sent her flowers and a card that Valentine's day when Grizz forgot). Knowing this, Tracy tries to intervene and have Grizz make him best man in Dotcom's place, resulting in strife and struggles for Liz Lemon in season 4 episode 20, Argus. Ultimately Dotcom is picked as best man, and Liz makes a speech that Grizz asks her to repeat at his wedding reception, one of three weddings on the same day she will be in, including Cerie's and Floyd's.
With the cancellation of TGS, Grizz remains at NBC. He is cast as the lead in a fish-out-of-water situation comedy developed by Dot Com, Grizz & Herz, in which his character runs an inn in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Liz eventually follows the duo, taking a behind-the-camera position and occasionally bringing her adopted children to work. ("Last Lunch")
