NBC's "The Office" has become a cultural phenomenon. For the past nine seasons, many of us have enjoyed the awkward, hilarious, and heartfelt adventures of the fictional staff at Dunder Mifflin Paper Company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. But on May 16, "The Office" is clocking out for good with the show's final episode, appropriately titled "Finale."
One of the show's stars, Brian Baumgartner, who plays Kevin Malone, the accountant and frontman of the bands Scrantonicity and Scrantonicity 2 on the series, stopped by Trending Now to talk to us about wrapping a show that has been a major part of this life for the last decade. Baumgartner also told us about the cast's off-camera antics.
The wrap party for the series is being held this weekend in Scranton, and Baumgartner described how emotional it would be for the cast to say goodbye. He said that during the first couple of seasons of the show, each week, the cast would try to get together to watch the newest episode at someone's home. As for a spinoff about Kevin, Baumgartner was not aware of any future shows that would feature his character, but he's certainly game to be involved.
Baumgartner also joined us for a little trivia game about "The Office." It was him versus Kevin from the Yahoo! Finance office, who is a huge fan of the show and considers himself to be an "Office" aficionado. The first person to answer five questions correctly won. The winner may surprise you.
