The former head of Dunder Mifflin has become one of Hollywood's most beloved actors since appearing on the first seven seasons of The Office.

While he's known for his comedic chops, Steve Carell took a more dramatic turn in 2014's Foxcatcher (for which he received his first Academy Award nomination) and again in the 2018 films Beautiful Boy and Welcome to Marwen. He has also starred on Apple TV+'s The Morning Show, Netflix's Space Force and FX's The Patient, in addition to voicing the villainous Gru in the Despicable Me film franchise and Minions spin-offs. Carell earned nine Emmy nominations as producer and actor for The Office, and in 2020, he also received a nomination for his performance as Mitch Kessler on The Morning Show.

Carell has been married to actress Nancy Walls since 1995. They have two children.

After leaving The Office, John Krasinski shed his dorky, boy-next-door image and became a bona fide sex symbol: He has starred as CIA analyst Jack Ryan on the Prime Video revival of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan since 2018. Like Carell, Krasinski also ventured into more dramatic film roles, including 13 Hours (2016), Detroit (2017) and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022), while also sharing his familiar voice in the animated movies Monsters University (2013), Animal Crackers (2017) and DC League of Super-Pets (2022).

To make his life even sweeter, he married actress Emily Blunt in 2010, and they share two daughters.

In addition to his on-camera roles, Krasinski has had substantial success as a director and producer. He directed the horror film franchise A Quiet Place and A Quiet Place Part II, costarring Blunt, and received three Emmy nominations for producing the series Lip Sync Battle.
