INTERVIEW: Craig Robinson discusses ‘The Office’

Even in a cast as large and talented as The Office's, comedian-actor Craig Robinson stands out. As the foreman of the Dunder Mifflin warehouse, Robinson plays the foil to Steve Carell's clueless boob of a middle manager, who sees Robinson as his mentor in the mysterious ways of African-American culture. Since making his name with The OfficeRobinson has branched out into feature films, establishing himself as a popular member of Judd Apatow's repertory company: He scored roles in Walk Hard, last year's hit action-comedy Pineapple Express, and in Knocked Up, where he played a wry bouncer with a strong anti-old-pregnant-bitches policy

Though he still dabbles in juicy bit parts, he had a sizable supporting turn in Kevin Smith's Zack And Miri Make A Porno, and he co-starred in the Korean monster movieDragon Wars. The A.V. Club recently spoke with Robinson about The OfficeD-War's mind-meltingly convoluted plot, playing characters with job titles and numbers instead of names, and improvising for Kevin Smith.
