The Office's Brian Baumgartner and Angela Kinsey on Michael Scott, Chili, and That Rumored Reboot
The Office is one of the most iconic TV shows of all time, and I'm willing to provide a painstakingly detailed list of proof for anyone who disagrees. Despite the fact that the NBC series aired its finale episode nearly six years ago, The Office maintains its standing as the most-streamed show on Netflix, still attracting new viewers who fall in love with the documentary-style filming (sans a corny laugh track), deadpan humor, and oh-so-relatable characters. Many of the cast members are still close to this day, frequently reuniting and filling fans with the sudden urge to cue up that catchy theme song.
I witnessed one such reunion firsthand while interviewing Angela Kinsey and Brian Baumgartner, aka your favorite polar-opposite accountants Angela Martin and Kevin Malone. The former Dunder Mifflin employees recently teamed up to celebrate the launch of Heineken 0.0, the brand's new alcohol-free beer, which is quite the natural fit, seeing as Angela Martin would definitely prefer to have boozeless drinks at a get-together organized by her beloved Party Planning Committee. I reminisced with the desk mates turned lifelong friends about some of The Office's most iconic moments (yes, including that chili scene) and walked away with tons of behind-the-scenes secrets to fuel my Scranton obsession.
