It made it seem like everyone else on set probably spent a lot of time thinking of clever ways to call in sick. But according to Alice Wetterlund – who played one of the show’s limited female characters, a programmer named Carla (seen above on the left) – pretty much everyone was happy to let T.J. be T.J.

A few years ago, Star Magazine published a story of fucked-up hazing abuse that Jon Hamm allegedly participated in during his time at the Sigma Nu fraternity in 1990. Jon never commented about it. Three years later, and Esquire brought it up during an interview.

Last year it was revealed that T.J. Miller had been written out of his role as Erlich Bachman on HBO’s Silicon Valley because he just didn’t want to do it anymore. Around the time the news broke of his departure, T.J. gave an interview in which he pulled back the curtain and let everyone know he really didn’t want to be on Silicon Valley anymore. He hated on executive producer Alec Berg and his co-star Thomas Middleditch, and generally bragged that he was better than the show.
