High School Musical

Long before their successes in Here Comes Treble and Scrantonicity, Kevin and Andy honed their vocal skills in high school.

Seriously, this is an actual photo of Brian Baumgartner and Ed Helms from their days in their high school chorale group. Yes, just like John Krasinski and B.J. Novak, Brian and Ed attended the same high school!

Brian told me the photo is “hardly cute,” but I beg to differ. (Can you spot them?)

Do you realize how many Office cast members that makes that have a singing background? — Kate, Craig, Creed, Melora, Rashida, Ed, and Brian.

If this doesn’t beg for a Dunder Mifflin talent show somewhere down the line, I don’t know what does.


  1. I can see Brian at the top left (Nice hair, man!), but I don’t think I’m seeing Ed… is he just to Brian’s right?

  2. haha i recognized brian immediately. how can you miss that smile? ed looks really different. he’s kinda cute.

  3. Too cute! It’s things like this that make me glad I’m not famous though… some of my high school photos are so dorky. :)

  4. Nope…Ed is in front of Brian, to the extreme left (second row from the top, extreme left side)…You can see it if you download it and magnify the photo…Okay — that’s 2 minutes of my life I’m not getting back…

  5. Brian is very noticable. he still looks the same.
    I can’t find Ed though.

  6. doesn’t the guy in the lower left look like john?

    and the old man opposite him looks like james cameron.

  7. I thought Ed Helms was the fourth guy from the bottom on the right? His hair is lighter, but I think he’s grinned that vaguely creepy grin a lot on The Daily Show.

  8. Re: My #20

    I mean the fourth kid from the bottom, which makes him third from the top. The one that Healthypanda more articulately pointed out.

  9. My vote goes to Ed being the guy on the right third from the top. I think its the light hair that is throwing everyone off.
