TV Guide interviews Oscar Nunez talks to Oscar Nunez about The Office and his Comedy Central show, Halfway Home: Was it difficult to keep a straight face while shooting the Michael-Oscar kiss in this season’s opener?

Nuñez: You know, that’s not one of my weaknesses. I’m pretty good at keeping a straight face. Steve [Carell] has made me break a handful of times during the season, but that wasn’t one of them.

Talking to Oscar Nunez talks to Oscar Nunez about The Office and his Comedy Central show, Halfway Home:

Is it difficult to keep a straight face when you’re working with Steve [Carell]?

No, I’m actually pretty good at keeping a straight face. A lot of the people in “The Office” break up. [John] Krasinski is notorious. He just laughs at anything that Steve does, and then Angela [Kinsey] follows suit. Him and Angela are little giggle partners.
