Baumgartner who plays the lovable oaf Kevin Malone on The Office stars in Kevins Loan, a short series of online webisodes that will premiere on NBC.com this Thursday (July 10), and he wants to show everyone whos the real star.
He says, Steve Carell may be the star of The Office, but Im the star of the Internet. Im the star of two-minute online video clips. Im very proud of that.
Baumgartner says his superior star quality is evident through his huge popularity with confused fans of the show.
He explains, Whenever I go somewhere, people want to buy Kevin a drink or a shot. Not me, but Kevin. I dont know what thats about since theres nothing about Kevin on the show that says he drinks. I think its the big, lovable guy thing people respond to.
