Clark and Pete are new to The Office in season 9. They don’t deserve separate posts (because I’m lazy). I’ve never heard of Jake Lacy but Clark Duke was a part of my favorite web series. He was on Clark and Michael with Micheal Cera. You should watch it.
Brian Baumgartner plays Kevin Malone on The Office. He doesn’t have a lot of acting credits. This is kind of interesting though:
“On July 8, 2008, Baumgartner appeared with the rest of the cast of The Office on Celebrity Family Feud, in which his team triumphed over the American Gladiators team.”
I am as amazed as you that in 2008 there were 5 American Gladiators still alive.
Last night on The Office: An American Workplace Toby rallied the gentlemen to grow steeshes for prostate cancer. And with that, I have a theme for the day.
Toby, who is pretty much the original Jerry from Parks and Rec in terms of being picked on, is played by Paul Lieberstein who is no slouch. He is the show’s writer, director, producer and showrunner.
Stephan Merchant, who is the Emmy and Golden Globe award winning co-creator of BBC’s The Office has decided to try his hand at stand-up. I didn’t know what to expect going in, only having seen him on the Ricky Gervais Show. I don’t know if the show was very funny, or I was charmed by his British accent, but I really enjoyed the act.
Merchant made it pretty clear from the start of the show that he was attempting this new venture as a way to distance himself, and his money, from Ricky Gervais. He gave examples of ways that Ricky has overshadowed him in the past, including visuals of newspaper headlines and magazine articles.
Merchant tells plenty of jokes, but the show is more of an account told in stories of the difficultly brought on by being a 6′ 7″ nerd, and his unsuccessful attempt at finding a wife. For his first attempt at parting ways with Gervais, Merchant holds his own. The show is definitely worth checking out if you get a chance.
The show was garbage, but that accent is amazing.
