How 'The Office' Stars' New Roles Measure Up to Their Dunder Mifflin Counterparts

The Office only ended less than a year ago, but it already feels like an eternity since we last saw Jim, Pam, Dwight and the rest of the Dunder Mifflin crew on our TVs. That's because with a few exceptions, nearly all of the show's ensemble has taken their time picking new roles, choosing to stay away from the small screen until the right part comes along. Now, though, several are returning, including Oscar Nunez (aka Oscar Martinez), who just signed onto Benched , a USA comedy starring Happy Endings' Eliza Coupe.

Little is known about Benched, picked up for a series order in January, except that Nunez will play a public defender colleague of Coupe's corporate attorney. It's exciting to see one of the series' best characters return to TV, especially in a role likely so different than his turn on The Office as an exasperated accountant.

For more on how the new roles of Nunez's former Office co-stars compare to their best-known characters, read on.
