KILL IT. KILL TO DEATH!

Not Howard… the show. My Christ, is Pam like 42 with child now?

Ryan Howard, the real one, will appear on the March 28 episode of The Office

ESPN.com learned exclusively about the guest star appearance (how does Comcast-owned NBC not tell CSN about this first?) and spoke to Craig Robinson (Darryl on the show), who said almost nothing of use on the subject:

So, we have a lot of important things to discuss, but I guess we have to start with Ryan Howard: What’s a superstar like him doing with your crappy startup agency? 

[Laughs.] Well, you know, we’re trying to blow this up. We want to be a success and we want him joining us, but we’re looking out for his best interests, too. We want to see Ryan’s star grow to beyond a household name, to where he’s a household-and-backyard name. 

How are Ryan’s acting skills? 

Ryan killed it. He was dope, man. He’s pretty damn funny in real life, which doesn’t always translate to TV, but he killed it. He’s definitely a better actor than John Krasinski. Without a doubt. [Laughs.] I’m just playing. 

Did you milk him for some dirt on the Phillies?  

I’ve met Ryan a couple of times and he’s very chill, but I’m from Chicago, so he didn’t want to hear that. But he did say he’s going to get me out to some games, so I’m looking forward to doing that.  

 

This is The Office’s ninth and (thankfully) final season. I don’t even know if the character Ryan Howard (B.J. Novak) is still on the show. I stopped watching about seven years ago. But we’ll look forward to seeing The Big Piece next month.

    I am so glad you noted you stopped watching 7 years ago to prove how cool you are.

    this season of the office is actually really good. surprising because it went down hill quick after steve carrell left last year. Will Ferrell was bad (worst I’ve ever seen him) but they resurrected it for a good final season.

    Kyle, I love the site, but the unwarranted hate for a truly funny show which had maybe 1-2 bad seasons makes me hate your big dumb face.
    Glad you stuck with it twat

    Don’t hate on a good show just because you dislike it. Look at how many actors started their careers on this show and from it began getting bigger roles. Don’t be ignorant.

    Meh! I stopped watching scripted shows over a decade ago, so I have no interest in this.

    Hey Kyle, so did you stop giving credit to readers who send you things or did you already have this before I sent you the link? Just wondering…

    Howard needs to focus his energies on earning his $25 million. Thats the problem with the Phillies. They won in 2008 and turned into Rockstars who lost focus. Its a crime that we do not have at least one more title – 2009, 2010 and especially 2011.

    I’m sorry, are you on the team? Jesus Christ what an ignorant statement
