‘The Office’ Actor Not So Sad And Pathetic

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Office’s Paul Lieberstein is a far happier guy than his TV alter ego.

Lieberstein – who plays the sad former human resources rep Toby Flenderson on the comedy series – has a lot more going for him than his character.

Unlike Toby, who secretly longs for office secretary Pam Beesley, Lieberstein just married the love of his life a month ago.

He deadpans, “I’ve never felt those lovesick emotions that Toby has.”

However, Lieberstein admits to once “pining after someone,” but only as a youngster.

Lieberstein may also be in a better mood than Toby since working on The Office is truly a family affair.

His brother-in-law is an executive producer on the show, and his sister-in-law, Angela Kinsey, plays the severe Angela Martin.

Kinsey also brings her newborn daughter Ruby on set to hang with Uncle Paul.

Lieberstein says, “The baby is on set most days, and it’s been incredible. I like having little conversations with her between scenes.”

Season five of The Office premieres September 25.
