Huh? Josh Groban to Star on 'The Office'!

The singer is heading to the small screen after ten years to play Ed Helms' brother on the NBC comedy

When we hear the name Josh Groban, we don't automatically think "comedic actor." But the uber-popular singer is changing up his game, and has landed a role on the upcoming season of NBC's The Office. According to, Groban has been cast as the brother of Ed Helms' character Andy Bernard.

Though Groban has dipped his feet in the acting pool before -- he had a role on Ally McBeal back in 2001, played himself on an episode of Glee -- it seems he's serious about making this a significant part of his career. He can currently be seen in a featured role in the blockbuster Crazy, Stupid, Love, costarring with former Office leading man Steve Carell.

Groban may not be the obvious choice for a part on a show like The Office, but maybe that's what will make his stint so impressive. We can't wait to see if this stellar vocalist has the comedic chops to match.
