Since The Office went off the air, Brian Baumgartner, who played the delightfully dumb Kevin, hasn't had much luck landing a steady gig. His other Greg Daniels project never came to fruition, and he has since only appeared in an episode of Hot In Cleveland.

Baumgartner will portray a "fast-talking teachers union rep who steps in when Molly gets embroiled in a bit of a to-do." So, the complete opposite of his beloved Office character, then.
