Joining Stephen Collins and Dee Wallace as the Bernards, the 'You Raise Me Up' singer will guest star as Ed Helms' on-screen brother on at least an episode of season 8.
Another celebrity has been brought in to make up Andy Bernard's family. Multi-platinum singer Josh Groban has been tapped to guest star as the brother of Ed Helms' character on the upcoming season of "The Office".
No other details are disclosed about Josh's appearance on the show, but there is a possibility his character will join Stephen Collins and Dee Wallace, who take the roles of Andy's parents, when they visit him. The singer himself got coy about his TV gig, tweeting only, "The cast and crew of The Office are the coolest ever. #allimgonnasay."
This will be Josh's first major TV gig since he played Malcolm Wyatt on "Ally McBeal" 10 years ago. He made a cameo appearance on "Glee" in 2009. Most recently, the "Believe" singer starred opposite Emma Stone and former "Office" star Steve Carell in drama movie "Crazy, Stupid, Love."
