You probably best know Creed Bratton as, well, Creed Bratton. The 70-year-old — who played guitar in The Grass Roots — has made an acting career for himself by playing a character bearing his same name on NBC's "The Office" since 2005. Now that the show is in its final season, Bratton is stepping out in more film roles, one of them as Sen. Charles Sumner in "Saving Lincoln." Out in limited release today, the film chronicles the friendship between President Abraham Lincoln (yes, another Lincoln-centric movie) and his faithful bodyguard, Ward Hill Lamon, in the contentious time of abolition.
NextMovie caught up with Bratton ahead of the film's release and talked about Lincoln cage matches, the bow of "The Office," and how he feels about karaoke. (Hint: Not positively!) Get More »
If you saw Craig Robinson on the street, you would probably call him Darryl. That's okay with him — people do it almost every day. After all, he's been playing the sarcastic warehouse worker-turned-manager by that name on "The Office" since 2005. Soon, though, Dunder Mifflin will close its doors for good and Robinson will be Darryl no more. Not that he was in the first place: Robinson has had memorable parts in "Knocked Up," "Hot Tub Time Machine," "Pineapple Express" and others. This week, he's back on the big screen with "Escape From Planet Earth." Or at least, his voice is. In the animated feature, Robinson voices Doc, a Furby-like alien talk radio host who has been taken hostage by scheming humans and forced to implement alien technology on Earth. Twitter? Yeah, that's all Doc.
NextMovie sat down with Robinson in New York ahead of the film's release to talk about aliens, "The Office," his hypothetical love advice talk show and more. Get More »
You see where this is going, don't you?
Long (well, not that long) before he was Bilbo Baggins or Dr. John Watson, Martin Freeman was Tim Canterbury, one of the long-suffering paper company employees of "The Office." And the editing wizards at Eagle Beaver Productions have found a way for Freeman to get back to his roots. Get More »

Is it a coincidence that NBC Universal's goofy and charming new rom-com "The Five-Year Engagement" is studded with actors from its Thursday-night lineup? Even "30 Rock" boss Jack Donaghy couldn't come up with a better plan.
Emily Blunt and Jason Segel are the stars, of course, as you can see from the ads featuring their enormous(ly lovely) faces on billboards, buses, and bus stops everywhere. Over the course of the movie's 124 minutes, viewers soon find themselves treated to appearances by some of the funniest young actors on the scene. Get More »
"Bridesmaids" star Ellie Kemper is officially a bride.
On "Conan" Wednesday night, the 31-year-old actress confirmed that she is engaged to Michael Koman, her boyfriend of several years, People reports.
During her interview, O'Brien threw in that he wanted "to mention something … It's sort of a big deal around this office. You got engaged."

Martin Freeman, who played the lovelorn Tim in the original, British version of "The Office," turned down the role of a lifetime when producers of "The Hobbit" offered Freeman the role of the titular furry creature, Bilbo Baggins.
Unfortunately, the actor was already committed to film another season of his BBC series "Sherlock." But according to EW, we shouldn't count Freeman out just yet. New Line and MGM, the studios behind "The Hobbit,' have a schedule up their sleeves that would allow him to shoot both projects. Get More »
