Oscar Nuñez may not be out of work for long following the series finale of NBC’s The Office this May.
The 54-year-old Cuba-born actor has joined the cast of NBC’s comedy pilot Holding Patterns.
Nuñez will portray Mickey, an urbane New York literary agent representing Chad Kirk (Nelson Franklin), a womanizing book author and one of a group of friends whose lives completely change after they survive a plane crash.
Nuñez has spent the last nine seasons as part of supporting cast of the network’s award-winning series about the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company.
He’s won two SAG Awards, an ALMA Award and a TV Land Award for portraying paper supply accountant Oscar Martinez on The Office. And the National Hispanic Media Coalition also honored him with an Impact Award.
