There was no real reason behind that character, it's just that the showrunners decided they needed "someone like that" on the show because every other show has one. For heaven's sake, he technically didn't even work in the same workplace as the other characters in a workplace comedy!
I dont think Mark was that bad of a character. He had some funny lines and reaction here and there. But as you said he didnt really serve that much purpose. Ann was the straight man/normal one for the most part so they didnt need to have a 2nd one.
And his sexual compulsiveness was so blown out of proportion to me. It was told alot more than it mentioned/shown.

Ben was the normal one too/still is but even before they developed him he some really good deadpan reactions and moments and then also that whole episode where he kept freaking out on TV. But as you said they developed him a lot better than they did with Mark

Yeah. That's what was initially reported if I remember correctly. Stupid move.

I saw an article sometime last year, where the actor basically was saying that he got tired of Hollywood and he thought of, or actually quit acting in "mainstream" projects. He also said that he didn't like the direction of where Mark was going.

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Ron wanting to ask Leslie for a job because he missed his friends.


You get to know a character for six years, and when they drop a bomb like that. Can't help but tear up.
That was a really good moment.
The one that got me was when Ron said: "I looked up and I didn't recognize anyone I was working with" or something like that.

It wasnt my favorite episode, but I probably would put Leslie & Ron in one of the best made episodes theyve done.

Mark may not be back, but we know he's coming back:

So now that Leslie and Ron have renewed their friendship, I'd be curious to see what happens when they want the same place for different reasons.

I wasn't sold on the Ron/Leslie fight. It seemed so implausible, but damn, the reasons they gave made me believe it. That **** was emotional.

I still would love to see Ron work for the federal government to see how much damage he can do.
