CRAIG ROBINSON

Craig Robinson has had funny roles in movies such as This Is the End, Pineapple Express, and Knocked Up. But to me, he'll always be The Office's Darryl Philbin, who started as a minor figure at the Scranton paper company before rising through its ranks (and rising in screen time) to wind up as a key player on the influential single-camera sitcom. A restrained contempt for incompetent boss Michael Scott is pervasive in the office, but it seemed most deeply smelted in Robinson's deadpan gaze, probably because he was one of two black main characters on a show with an oblivious white hole at its center. Robinson also performs solo shows that mix stand-up comedy and his piano playing with a band called The Nasty Delicious, and he's coming to Goodnights for a three-night stand this week. —Brian Howe
