“The Office” cast members come to Ferris for a Q&A event

BIG RAPIDS, Michigan – Ferris State University will be visited by two accountants from Dunder Mifflin. Office stars Brian Baumgartner (Kevin Malone) and Oscar Nunez (Oscar Martinez) will be at a Q&A event on Wednesday, September 21 at 7 p.m. at the Williams Auditorium.

The event is part of Ferris State University’s Homecoming 2022 lineup. “We are very pleased to fulfill our students’ wishes for a comedy Homecoming event by bringing Brian and Oscar in,” said Nicholas Campau, Associate Dean of Student Life. “We surveyed the students, coming up with a range of artists and they were the favorites of many who responded.”

After the event, there will be a signing session for Baumgartner’s chili cookbook. One of the show’s most popular moments was a cold open in the Season 5 episode “Casual Friday,” where Kevin brought some chili he’d made at the office and dropped it by earth. All proceeds from book sales will benefit Mecosta-Osceola United Way.

Tickets for the event are available at the David L. Eisler Center Information Desk. They will cost $10 for students and $20 for the general public.

The American version of Office was developed by Greg Daniels and aired on NBC from 2005 to 2013. It is based on the original British series created by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. The series starred Steve Carell as Michael Scott, Rainn Wilson as Dwight Schrute, John Krasinki as Jim Halpert, Jenna Fischer as Pam Beesly, BJ Novak as Ryan Howard, and Ed Helms as Andy Bernard. In Dunder Mifflin’s accounting department, Kevin and Oscar worked with Angela Martin (played by Angela Kinsey).

Although Office ended in 2013, the show has continued to find new life. The Peacock streaming service has released extended episodes of the show’s first five seasons titled The Office: Superfan Episodes. In 2019, Fischer and Kinsey launched the office ladies podcast, where both episodes are reviewed and discussed. Baumgartner also hosted his Desk-themed podcast called The Office in Depth with Brian Baumgartner.

The Q&A event with Brian Baumgartner and Oscar Nunez will take place on Wednesday, September 21.
