The Offices Ed Helms proves that sometimes, its hip to be square.
Theres never been a better time to be a nerd -- just ask Ed Helms. Last summer, the former The Daily Show with Jon Stewart correspondent dominated the box office as browbeaten dentist Stu Price in The Hangover. And this month, hell reprise his role as Cornell University educated kiss-up Andy Bernard on NBCs The Office. Without a doubt, the 35-year-old Atlanta native is now a formidable comic presence -- a multihyphenate who can sing, play the banjo, write, act, edit, and direct. Its weird that guys like me are finding success today, he says, because were only really doing all the stuff people used to call us nerds for. But its kind of cool, too, you know? We chatted with Helms about missing teeth, the changing face of comedy, and what its like to work in TVs most famous office.
