'The Office' Alum Nabs 'Melissa & Joey' Role (Exclusive)
One of Dunder Mifflin's finest is heading to Melissa & Joey.
Brian Baumgartner, known for playing oddball accountant Kevin on The Office, has landed a guest-starring role on the ABC Family sitcom's fourth season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The actor, who recurred earlier this year on FX drama series The Bridge, will play Hank, a campaign investor who considers helping Mel (Melissa Joan Hart) run for Congress. Hank has second thoughts when he meets Joe (Joey Lawrence), who's in the throes of a coffee binge, and assumes Mel's husband has a serious drug problem.
Baumgartner will appear in the season's fourth episode.
