Welcome back readers. Here we continue our journey, exploring what everyone's favorite paper salesmen have been up to since The Office finished its epic run.

We're going to take a look at what the rest of this fantastic cast are up to now. There are a large number of characters to focus on in this show, each of which has something that appeals to many different people from all over the world. So to try and cover everyone's favorite main characters, I'll do my best to track all of the Dunder Mifflin team down and provide a little something for all.

The first part of this series can be found by clicking the link here.

Kelly Kapoor/Mindy Kaling

Kelly began her stint on The Office as a somewhat quiet background character in the first season, but rapidly became The Office loudmouth. Her on-again off-again relationship with co-worker, Ryan, provided plenty of drama and entertainment. She was also a prominent writer for the show. Since leaving, she has gone on to write, produce and star in The Mindy Project. She has just released her second book, titled What About Me? and has a book co-written with B.J. Novak in the works, as well.

Ryan Howard/B.J. Novak

Ryan Howard was the over ambitious temp. He was a man with drive and determination that was seconded only by his lazy and arrogant attitude. He provided many laughs on the show as well as provided a character to hate, he was as close to a bad guy as the show could get. He also came up with one of my favorite quotes in regards to a work ethic, "the old boss let me get away with far to much, I need a someone that's going to lead me. Lead me, when I'm in the mood to be led". His film credits since leaving the show include The Internship, Smurfs 2, Saving Mr. Banks, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He also showed up on television, on a handful of episodes of The Mindy Project, and an episode of Community. Additionally, he wrote a book of short stories and a book for children titled, The Book with No Pictures.

Stanley Hudson/Leslie David Baker

Stanley was quiet man of The Office. The true personification of the office drone, he came in and put in his time, but as soon as that clock hit 5, he was gone. He largely kept to himself and kept himself busy with crossword puzzles, Stanley didn’t care about anything office-related. At all. Although, he did have a close friendship with his desk mate, Phyllis (or as close to a friendship as Stanley wanted). Recently, Leslie David Baker has been working the guest star circuit, doing one episode each of Key & Peele, Marry Me, Austin & Ally, and The Exes. He also had a cameo in Zach Braff’s Wish You Were Here.

Meredith Palmer/Kate Flannery

Meredith was the female Office pervert. She was a woman of questionable morals and did some truly shady deals for her work, but never saw an issue with her actions. She was a booze hound that really loved herself. After getting hit by a car, flashing her co-workers repeatedly and catching rabies as the unstable Meredith, Kate Flannery appeared in the films Cooties, Helicopter Mom, Dial a Prayer, and Slow Learners, while also lending her voice to an episode of Steven Universe and playing Annie Sullivan in an episode of Another Period.

Creed Bratton/Creed Bratton

Creed Bratton was one of the biggest mysteries in The Office. His strange world knowledge and vague past kept everyone guessing for years, and he was one of the biggest enigmas to ever grace our TV sets. Creed spent nine seasons being The Office‘s horrifying weirdo. Despite being over 70, Creed Bratton has worked pretty steadily lately, with the films Saving Lincoln and Band of Robbers, as well as an episode each of Adventure Time, Franklin & Bash, Garfunkel and Oates, Comedy Bang! Bang!, and Netflix’s Grace and Frankie.

Kevin Malone/Brian Baumgartner

Kevin was Dunder Mifflin’s male Office pervert. Except he was so naive in his comments and had a puppy dog look, that no one could stay mad at. Following his stint as Dunder Mifflin’s Office idiot, Brian Baumgartner has also bounced around a lot, turning up on episodes of Mike & Molly, Hot in Cleveland, Criminal Minds, and The Bridge.

Oscar Martinez/Oscar Nunez

Often treated by Michael like the token minority, Oscar was easily one of the most patient characters on the show. Oscar was The Office know-it-all and even had a bit of a steamy love triangle going on when he embarked on an affair with Angela's closeted husband, the state senator. He was a valuable member of the ensemble and always provided a sense of levity amidst the chaos. Nunez went on to have guest roles on Family Tree, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, New Girl, Bad Teacher, and Comedy Bang! Bang!, and was a main actor on the sadly cancelled show Benched.

Erin Hannon/Ellie Kemper

Taking over the receptionist desk from Pam after she went on to bigger and better things, The Office introduced Ellie Kemper‘s wide-eyed, naive humor to viewers. She was sweet, simple and oh so naive. Erin's kind spirit even led her to stay in two relationships despite eventually being repulsed by both men, which always led to hilarious scenes. Once the doors closed for Dunder-Mifflin, Kemper appeared in the films, Identity Thief, Laggies, They Came Together, and Sex Tape. She guest starred in a few episodes of co-star Mindy Kaling’s The Mindy Project, and had her huge breakout starring role in Tina Fey’s hit Netflix series, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Toby Flenderson/Paul Lieberstein

Toby was The Office sad sack HR representative who just couldn’t catch a break. Hated by Michael and unloved by Pam, his time at work wasn't great, but he did have his dream of escaping to Costa Rica and writing his crime series, The Flenderson Files. The most attention he probably got on the show was his time spent as a juror on the Scranton Strangler case. Paul Lieberstein was also a writer and producer on the show, and that is where his main work has been since The Offices conclusion. He produced the final season of The Newsroom, and directed two episodes, as well. He acted in two episodes of the Aaron Sorkin drama, and made a guest appearance on Bad Teacher.
