Baumgartner admits the big, sorta slow guy is nothing new in comedy but says his Office character, Kevin Malone, is a fat part unlike his other roles.
In his words: Kevin is completely honest and inappropriate but he also has a confidence and a hipster [background] completely his own.
The actor says he sees his character as being a hip writer or musician somewhere else if he hadnt taken the job at Dunder Mifflin.
His one flaw, says Baumgartner, is that he never figured out he was supposed to do that.
The Office airs Thursdays on NBC.
