Jennifer Garner Reacts to Finishing The Office for the First Time in Emotional Video: 'It's Wonderful'

Fischer and Kinsey aren't the only former Office stars who have been rewatching the show.

On episode 8 of Spotify's An Oral History of The Office podcast, host Brian Baumgartner, who played Kevin Malone on the hit comedy series for all nine seasons, revealed that he advocated for his quirky character to have a romance with the adorably innocent Erin Hannon, played by Ellie Kemper.

“Do you know that I pitched Kevin and Erin getting together?” Baumgartner, 47, asked Kemper, 40, during the podcast episode.

“I think that would be a pretty reasonable relationship," she agreed.

Baumgartner explained that he felt the two eccentric characters had compatible energies.

"I went up to the writers’ room, and I said, ‘If Kevin could mature just a little, there was something about their energy that I thought was right,'" he recalled. "Their energies matched in a weird way."

“That actually makes perfect sense to me. I love that pitch,” Kemper said.
