The Office fandom can all agree that the workplace comedy is probably the greatest show to ever exist, but that doesn't mean we can all come to a consensus on who the best character on it is. From Michael Scott's awkward moments and "That's what she said" jokes, to Dwight Schrute's bizarre interests and hobbies, each Dunder Mifflin employee has their own quirks which make them so special. But have you ever stopped to think about which actor behind the beloved crew is most like the person they portray?
One curious fan had that exact thought, and decided to call upon Jenna Fischer (who played Pam Beesly) for answers. When Twitter user @TopherBaggins tagged the actress and asked, "My fiancé and I absolutely love [The] Office and we were wondering, which actor or actress is most like their character?," she was quick to reply, "Creed :)." Amazing!
Considering Creed Bratton (played by actor Creed Bratton) is arguably the strangest character on The Office, this answer is all the more hilarious. As fans will recall, this is the guy who fled the scene when Michael said there had been a murder, tried setting up Jim with his daughter despite thinking he was gay, and was discovered fully living in the office. These are just a few of the many, many bizarre moments for Creed.
It's sometimes hard to imagine the actors behind our favorite characters living a life that's not what we see on our TVs, but for Creed, maybe it's not all too different after all.
