[show]SPOILER: Over the course of the series, there were many hints that Kenneth was considerably older than the character's outward appearance would suggest (the actor who plays Kenneth, Jack McBrayer, was in his early 30s when "30 Rock" started). These include: Kenneth's recognition of TV pop culture from decades before he logically would have been born; he's familiar with the laws of the Roman Republic and fluent in Latin; his anxiety in "Don Geiss, America and Hope" that NBC will start limiting and verifying the ages of their pages and his concern in "The Problem Solvers" that people in the office have been spreading a rumor that he's "been alive forever"; his memory that an eight-year-old 'Shirley Temple (I)' taught him how to roll cigarettes; his refusal to tell Suze Orman his age in "Today You Are a Man"; his on-screen identification as "Kenneth Parcell: Elderly Page" in "Queen of Jordan"; and many other jokes and references. In the episode "Governor Dunston," Kenneth's mother (Catherine O'Hara) visits and tells Jenna that Kenneth has "always been a special boy. I remember the day he was born. He looked up at me and said, 'Momma, I am not a person. My body's just a flesh vessel for an immortal being whose name if you heard it would make you lose your mind.'" In the last episode of the series, Kenneth looks to be exactly the same even many decades in the future, still the president of NBC, hearing a series pitch from Liz's great-granddaughter; many viewers speculated that that meant that Kenneth is actually immortal.
- In 30 Rock, Aubrey Plaza guest stars as a page when, in reality, she began her career as an intern.
