The Office went off the air in 2013 and it has since become an institution of comedy. The beloved series is still as popular as ever, if not more, with Rainn Wilson's character Dwight Schrute always being a fan-favorite. Craig Robinson, who played Darryl Philbin, recently spoke with Wilson for his Soul Pancake series on Instagram, Hey There, Human, where the pair spent some time reminiscing about the show. During their virtual reunion, Wilson came clean about how he still feels bad for the "horrible thing" he did to Robinson when an innocent joke went wrong while filming a scene for the Season 8 episode "Mrs. California."
As reported by CinemaBlend, Wilson recalled and apologized for an incident on set where he accidentally threw a barbell weight at Robinson's head.

"When I see you immediately I feel terrible, because I did a horrible thing to you once on the set of The Office and it was one of the stupidest things I’ve ever done in my entire life," Wilson told his former co-star. "For the rest of my life I'll apologize to you...I had some little scene where I had to run into him and be like, ‘Darryl, we gotta have a meeting.’ Let’s go down to the warehouse. Come on, let’s go,’ or something like that…And you had on your desk a little desk weight, a miniature barbell… I was like, this’ll be nice, I’ll just pick up this prop and I flipped it in the air and it went bonk! Right in [Craig’s] forehead. He was shocked, and angry, and hurt and an egg swelled up on your forehead."

I have to admit, that sounds pretty funny! I need the blooper reel of this moment, ASAP.
