The Office Characters: Where Are They Now?

Four years after the documentary aired, we were able to catch up with all of our favorite former Dunder Mifflinites.  So here's the scoop on what you haven't been able to see on TV.

Andy Bernard: 

Within a year of the documentary airing, Andy found himself married and living his dream, becoming part of the new-student-recruitment staff of his beloved Cornell.  But in 2015, he discovered his new wife having an affair with Broccoli Rob.  "I've been betrayed like this before," Andy said of his heartache, "but I would have been willing to work it out. I could have forgiven the cheating.  I could even have forgiven him. But not after what I saw." As it turned out, he walked in on the couple in a compromising position whilst wearing Harvard Pride T-Shirts. "There's a big red line you can't cross with me, and they did. It was completely unforgivable." The unfortunate incident had bittersweet results: The marriage ended in divorce, but his loyalty inspired the college to not only give him a raise, but also name him as Here Comes Treble's permanent Artistic Director. He's never been happier.

Angela Schrute:

Life's been hectic for this now mom of six (seven if you count Mose). After successfully convincing her husband of her cats' practical uses as farm animals, Angela's side-business "Kitty-Butter" has gained marginal local success.  Granted, that success comes from her only customer and former coworker, Kevin.  When asked about his affinity for the feline-dairy product, he said: "Hey, it's better than eating actual cats." And knowingly added:  "You can't eat those."

Creed Bratton:

What little information on Creed we can find tells us that he has warrants out for his arrest all over the world.  In the southwestern United States, he's suspected of running a theft ring after several grand pianos seemingly vanished into thin air in Phoenix, Las Vegas and Reno.  In the Bahamas, he is wanted for kidnapping various species of butterflies from a local botanical garden.  And in Thailand, there is a $50,000 reward for his whereabouts following an incident in which he "mooned" the anchors of the country's most watched morning show: "Wake Up Thai," on air.  We were unfortunately unable to obtain a clip from the show, but we have been able to track down his latest virtual comings and goings through his Creed Thoughts Facebook page.

Darryl Philbin:

Darryl has been living the good life in Austin. A few years ago, he reconciled with ex-wife Justine and brought her and their daughter Jada to live with him in Texas.  But once he realized Justine was only interested in him again due to his success with Athleap, the two split and co-parent locally. He's recently been spotted dating four different Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders, but says he's not taking any of them seriously. His daughter Jada, now 16, has enjoyed success as the leading scorer on her high school volleyball team, and says she hopes to use her dad's contacts and savvy to secure a professional contract in the sport after college.

David Wallace:

Still owns Dunder Mifflin. But, he's hoping to expand the business beyond paper. Currently, he's developing a solvent that removes human feces staining from auto paint. He also credits his highly lucrative invention "Suck-It" as "the greatest mistake since penicillin."

Dwight Schrute:

Dwight has done a better job at Dunder Mifflin than anyone ever expected. His single-handed success in the Scranton branch went on to mushroom into larger and larger sales areas, eventually rendering him the Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin America. As the company continued its rapid exponential growth into international waters, Dwight was recently featured (along with David Wallace) in a Fortune Magazine cover article under the heading: "Assistant (to the) CEO." His beet farm/B&B Schrute Farms continues to be successful, running with the help of his cousins Mose and Zeke.  Asked for a quote for this article, Dwight said simply: "You couldn't handle my comments." But he did express pride that his eldest son, Phillip, was now able to teach his younger brothers to circumcise themselves.

Erin Hannon:

Erin continues to tour the country with her parents' puppet show, but has struggled with finding her voice.  Literally. Her puppets only do background work at the moment.  Recently engaged to Pete, Erin says she has a hard time with long distance relationships, but that they'll work it out, "as long as he doesn't go anywhere on a boat!" She added. The two plan to marry at a small ceremony later this year and don't forsee ever getting pregnant.  "We love kids." She said, "so we're going to adopt some."

Gabe Lewis:

Gabe is currently enrolled in a Chinese corporate program which "rents" white people to appear more professional to clients.  His only job is to be seen and not heard.  He works in Hong Kong on Mondays and Wednesdays, Beijing on Tuesdays and Fridays and Tokyo on Thursdays. Now immersed in the cultures of the Orient, Gabe's given up his former love for all-things-Asian and instead has developed a taste for Caribbean culture. When not playing Michael's old steel-drum (purchased on eBay and shipped overseas) he can be found reciting slam poetry to his framed poster of Doug E. Doug, his only willing audience.

Jan Levinson:

After a double rejection of both her dreams: Astrid appearing on Toddlers in Tiaras, and a starring role in her own TV brainchild, "Janton" (Think The Real Housewives of Scranton mixed with Cabaret), Jan's settled into life as a home-blogger.  We would post the link to her blog, but it's under investigation right now for recommending that parents have their children drink wine to achieve "the perfect lip stain." She's also still unable to find a therapist who will see her for more than 2 sessions.

Jim Halpert:

Recently promoted to Vice President of New Acquisitions for Athleap, Jimothy's been highly successful since leaving his hometown.  He's responsible for signing 3 of the top 10 highest grossing athletes in American sports in recent years, but still says the best part of his day is coming home. Recently, he told us he's been considering calling Dwight to complain about how "loud" Dunder Mifflin paper is becoming.

Kevin Malone:

Kevin's still filling frothy mugs at his bar, Kevin's, in Scranton. In recent years, his business has expanded to include 3 new locations, one of which being the former Poor Richard's Pub. He was recently honored with a consideration to be added to the Five Families of Scranton, a life-long dream, and has become an active member of the city's Chamber of Commerce.  Last spring, he married on-again-off-again sweetheart Lynne, and they're currently expecting their first child. He also continues to work on his music with the 4th resurrected version of his Police-tribute band, Scrantonicity V.

Meredith Palmer:

Meredith stepped down as Head of Supplier Relations at Dunder Mifflin in favor of a "less-demanding role" when the business expanded internationally. She now enjoys the title of "Senior Assistant to the Junior Gofer" with less hours and fewer opportunities for unethical business practices.  The position allows her enough free time to dedicate herself to her true passion: being a stage mom.  She currently books her son Jake as "an escort and adult entertainer" for no less than a 20% cut per gig. When asked what she's got planned for the year ahead she said: "I'm going sober! Today, I mean.  Er, tomorrow.  Next week at the latest!"

Michael & Holly Scott:

These two have been busy busy busy! Their children: Ryan (6), twins Jimmy and Stanley (4), Pammy (2) and Kelly (3 months), are all happy and healthy.  The brood all moved back to Scranton early last year following the unfortunate death of Holly's father.  They purchased Jim and Pam's old house and Michael built a small Mother-In-Law cottage for Holly's mom in the backyard (and then Holly called a contractor and had it rebuilt). In their last year's family Christmas newsletter, The Scottlebutt, Michael said he was thrilled about rejoining Dunder Mifflin's sales team as a Senior Sales Associate Extraordinaire, and plans to use the first of the "thousand favors" Dwight promised him for his return, on reinstating The Dundies.

Oscar Martinez:

His successful blog, podcast and web-brand "The Finer Things Club" has been recently acquired by the Martha Stewart Corporation in a multi million dollar book deal.  But that's only a small portion of his accomplishments.  Oscar was also recently reelected for a second term as a Pennsylvania State Senator, where in his first term he successfully lobbied for new legislation close to his heart.  Oscar's Law, as it were, states that anyone caught leaving a pet in an unventilated vehicle may be punished by up to 10 years in prison. The law goes into effect this summer.

Pam Halpert:

Loving life in Austin with Jim and their three kids, Cece (7), Phillip (5), and baby Michael (18 months), and running a small art gallery, Pam keeps pretty busy. "I love being a PTA mom" she said recently, speaking of daughter Cecelia's new school activities, "It's like, after the Party Planning Committee, Michael and Jan? I can handle anything these moms throw at me."

Phyllis & Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration:

These two crazy lovebirds got themselves into quite a pickle last year.  After ducking into a Model K83 Subcooler (the largest in Bob's line of industrial refrigerators) to have a, um...well, "quickie," the two were locked inside by a passing worker.  36 hours and nearly all the oxygen later, they were discovered in bad shape and rushed to the hospital. Once recovered, they both decided to retire and see the world.  They've so far made it to Indianapolis.

Ryan & Kelly Howard:

Yep, you read that right.  They tied the knot.  Again.  And again. And again.  When asked for comment on their recent re-nuptials, Kelly said "Fourth time's the charm!" and Ryan said "I don't know where its going. Stop trying to pigeon-hole me, alright? Monogamy is so old-world, it's like this ancient thing people push..." We're sorry, the interviewer couldn't take any more and had to walk away. 

Stanley Hudson:

Florida Stanley is a happy Stanley indeed.  After having left his wife and dumping both of his mistresses, this sassy black man put his messy past behind him.  His bird carvings aren't as popular on eBay as he'd hoped (in fact there's only ever been one customer, a U. Ping with billing addresses first in Boulder Colorado and then Scranton of all places...) but he doesn't really need the extra dough. Several sources have spotted him enjoying shopping sprees with and snuggling up to Janice Combs, mother of rap mogul Sean "P. Diddy" Combs.

Toby Flenderson:

After a short lived stint in New York working on his 14th unpublished Chad Flendermen Novel, Toby returned to Scranton saying "I can get rejection letters in a mailbox that doesn't cost $4000 a month." He took a job in human resources at a local TJ Maxx store, and remains single.  As he probably will be until the day he dies.

It's been 3 years since The Office ended: Where are they now? (Cast Updates)

As of today, it's officially been 3 years since The Office's final curtain call. Go ahead, cry it out. We're right there with you.  And when you're done, read on for the latest happenings in the lives of the actors who did their jobs so well, it's hard to imagine they're not really the people we came to see as our TV family.

Steve Carell
The former Michael Scott has been very busy.  Since leaving the show, he's become an Oscar nominee (for Foxcatcher), received another nod from the Golden Globes for his role in The Big Short earlier this year, and in recent months, teamed up with his wife Carol Nancy to co-executive produce a TBS comedy starring Rashida Jones entitled "Angie Tribeca." It's first season followed binge-watching trends, releasing all 10 episodes in a single marathon, and was very well received by critics and fans.  Season 2 will premiere soon, on June 6th. Personally, it's been tough for Steve as of late, losing his beloved mother only one day before this year's Mother's Day.

John Krasinski
Our beloved Jimothy has also kept very busy.  The biggest news is that he's become a dad to now 2 year old Hazel, and has another one on the way with wife Emily Blunt. When he's not battling neighbor Jimmy Kimmel with Halpert Vs. Schrute-esque prank wars and charming Emily Blunt, he's working on his physique for his film projects.  For his role in "13 Hours", which released earlier this year, John said he had only 4 months to get ripped for the film.  His hard work was shown off on the cover of Men's Health Magazine and its feature editorial. Recently, he's teamed up with Claire Danes starring in the off-broadway play Dry Powder, where last month he had a mini-reunion with the other half of PB&J.

 Rainn Wilson
Although his FOX TV Show "Backstrom" was cancelled early last year, Rainn's anything but idle. He's gaining YouTube followers the world over on his channel SoulPancake, which is also the name of his production company. At the end of last year, he published a book entitled The Bassoon King: My Life in Art, Faith and Idiocy (available on Amazon), which debuted as a New York Times Bestseller. He's recently been reported as joining the cast of a new Showtime series "Roadies", a brainchild of the highly talented Cameron Crowe (Almost Famous, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Jerry Maguire).  Rainn will play the recurring role of Bryce Newman, "an extremely self-important music journalist" when the series premieres next month. And of course, as always, the former Dwight's getting laughs via twitter.

Jenna Fischer
She might always be Pamalamadingdong to us, but Jenna's acting chops are far from limited to playing one half of TV's greatest romance. Beginning on January 28th, Americans were able to see her in "You Me & The Apocalypse" on NBC.  The new series featured costars Rob Lowe and Megan Mullally, and aired first on sky1 in the UK, where it received positive reviews from critics.  Although it was well received by viewers in the US, it wasn't picked up for a second season. She's also occupied herself with being a mom to her two kids, and breaking the internet by sending Office-fans the world over into a tizzy of hope for JAM: the IRL version. 

B.J. Novak
Does life imitate art or does art imitate life? Who knows. We do know the former Ryan Howard and Office staff writer and producer BJ Novak, has added App Developer to his resume by co-creating the new app The List, similarly to his TV counterpart's brainchild: WUPHF.com.  The new app, available to Apple users, allows you to "Create and share lists about anything and everything."  Like Rainn, BJ also published a book entitled One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories which was well received by critics in 2014.  We recommend checking out the audio book version, which features voice work from former cast mates Mindy Kaling, Jenna Fischer and Rainn Wilson as well as other famous names the likes of Katy Perry, Lena Dunham, Julianne Moore, and Emma Thompson.

Mindy Kaling
Mindy is by far one of the busiest former Dunder Mifflinites.  Her hit TV series "The Mindy Project" was, as of this week, picked up for a 5th season by Hulu.com (The show's new home after Fox cancelled it last year).  It's featured recurring roles from former cast mates B.J. Novak and Ellie Kemper, and guest spots from Paul Lieberstein, Ed Helms and Steven Colbert.  She's also published two bestselling books, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns), and Why Not Me?, and boasts the highest Instagram following of all the former Office-mates.

Ed Helms
The once upon a time Nard Dog has been one of the busier former cast members.  Since the finale of The Office, he's starred in 6 successful feature comedy films (We're The Millers, and the Vacation reboot among them) and he currently has 4 more films in post-production.  One of which, Bastards, is set to release late this year.  It has star-studded cast including Owen Wilson, Glenn Close and JK Simmons.  When he's not busy filming new projects, Ed's also indulging his love for Bluegrass with his band The Lonesome Trio, who released a self-titled debut album around this time last year.

Ellie Kemper
Kemper fared very well after The Office ended.  She recently announced her first pregnancy with husband (and fellow comedy pro) Michael Koman, but has had much success in more than just her personal life. She's had a series of small comedic parts in film and on her former BFF's show "The Mindy Project," but most notable in Kemper's latest resume is her starring role in the highly successful and critically acclaimed Netflix original series: "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" which currently boasts a whopping 95% on Rotten Tomatoes and 8/10 rating on IMDb. Her title character is the survivor of a doomsday cult who reinvents herself in New York City after living underground in Indiana for 15 years. It's second season released last month and is available exclusively on Netflix.

Craig Robinson
Since leaving the show, Craig's starred in cult comedies like This Is The End and Hot-Tub Time Machine 2.  But his talents are not limited only to in-your-face-comedy.  In the independent film Morris from America, which was shown at Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, Craig plays a more subtle comedic role as the father of the title character, both of whom have moved to Germany so Craig's character can coach a soccer team.  At Sundance, Craig earned the honor of the U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for his performance in the film.The former Darryl Philbin also continues to delight audiences with his band The Nasty Delicious, which will tour Austrailia next month.

Angela Kinsey
Say what??? The former Mrs. Dwight Schrute, everybody's favorite anal-retentive cat-loving accountant, has gone brunette in 2016 for her role in a new Netflix series "Haters Back Off," which is currently in pre-production. Kinsey has had a series of small TV comedy parts since leaving The Office, such as recurring roles on "New Girl" and "Your Family or Mine."  Wholly unlike her famous alter-ego, Angela Kinsey is all-smiles and laughs IRL.  She's also highly dedicated to The Office's fandom and frequently tweets and Instagrams throwbacks to the show and reunion photos with her former cast-mates.  Follow her twitter and Insta for regular Office-y goodness.

Paul Lieberstein
Since The Office ended, the former Toby Flenderson convicted rapist, Paul's kept busy as a writer and producer.  He executive produced the critically acclaimed series "The Newsroom" which aired 3 seasons on HBO from 2012-2014. The series earned many award nods, most notably for star Jeff Daniels' starring role. Earlier this year, Paul also celebrated the 25th anniversary of "Clarissa Explains it All" his first writing gig. Most recently, he can be seen in a mini-Office reunion with fellow annex-mate Mindy Kaling in "The Mindy Project." His role is Toby-esque and would likely delight most Office fans.  Watch his guest role in the episode "Mindy Lahiri is DTF" exclusively on Hulu.

Creed Bratton
Since Dunder Mifflin closed its doors in 2013, Creed's kept himself occupied in various music and acting projects.  In 2014, he released a 3 part "audio-biography" entitled "Tell Me About It."  More recently, he can be seen in a guest role on Netflix's original series "Grace & Frankie" starring Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, in the episode "The Bachelor Party." He also continues to share his music talents with small audiences.  His most recent 10-date tour closed up only a few weeks ago.

Kate Flannery
Kate's had more than a dozen small parts since The Office said goodbye (most notably as Mean Marge on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and in the film 4th Man Out), but she's also kept busy on stage.  Recently, she's been touring with Jane Lynch's show "See Jane Sing,"and continues to tour cross country with her comedy act The Lampshades.

Brian Baumgartner

In 2014, Brian married long time girlfriend Celeste Ackleson and the two welcomed their first child, Brylee Bea, in February of 2015.  Work's also kept him busy appearing in small recurring roles in TV hits like "Hot in Cleveland" and "Melissa & Joey." He's also recently reported to have joined the cast of "Hand of God," for its season two.  The series is available only on Amazon.

Oscar Nunez
Actually, Oscar's been anything but idle since The Office wrapped its series finale.  He's had a series of small TV parts (including guest roles on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," "Life in Pieces" and "Shameless" among them) as well as a recurring part in the 2014 series "Benched" which unfortunately was cancelled last year.  Aside from acting, Oscar's used his celebrity to team up with Cruelty Free International, campaigning to end animal cosmetic testing. He's pictured left with his rescue dog, Gus. Oscar can also be found on Twitter, occasionally posting mini-reunion pics with his former coworkers, as it were.

Phyllis Smith

The former Mrs. Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration, never had much of an acting bug to begin with, only becoming part of the series after reading lines with the cast as part of the show's talent-seeking staff.  But since she took her last bow as Phyllis Lapin-Vance, Vance Refrigeration, Phyllis, the actress, has found fame. In the 2015 Pixar animated feature film hit Inside Out, Phyllis voiced the starring role Sadness next to comedy giants Amy Poehler (Joy) Bill Hader (Fear) and Lewis Black (Anger).  Her former coworker, Mindy Kaling also voiced a small role in the film, playing Disgust. The film, as of the time of this posting, has grossed over $850 million U.S. dollars world-wide.
