Zach Woods: The New Jan on The Office
As previously reported, Kathy Bates is coming to The Office. She'll play Jo, the head of the company that purchased Dunder Mifflin on the 2009 finale.
But the Oscar winner won't be walking into the funniest show on TV alone.
Zach Woods is also joining the show for multiple episodes. He'll take on the role of a crony named Gabe who "fills the role that Jan used to have,” said producer Greg Daniels. “He’s the guy who goes from branch to branch, whom people have to report to.”
This will mark Woods' first role on TV. He most recently appeared in the James Gandolfini film In the Loop.
