Craig Robinson built a rep of quiet cool, evolving from minor roles on the hit sitcom "The Office" (NBC, 2005- ) to increasingly prominent billing and critical buzz. A stand-up comedian who worked at Chicago's renowned comic cauldron Second City, Robinson first made his way onto television as part of a tandem act with Jerry Minor, before landing brief but memorable guest shots on upper-echelon sitcoms such as "Arrested Development" (FOX, 2003-06), and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" (HBO, 2000- ). In 2005, however, his luck changed when he earned a job as the stoic "Office" warehouse manager Daryl on the hit NBC sitcom. The newly popular actor turned in memorable performances in the Judd Apatow film "Knocked Up" (2007), Kevin Smith's "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" (2008), and the Apatow-produced "Pineapple Express" (2008). In 2010, he vaulted to star status in the much-hyped major studio comedy, "Hot Tub Time Machine" alongside John Cusack. Sharing a name with First Lady Michelle Obama's brother, the head basketball coach of Oregon State University, Robinson's critically beloved characterizations established him as a comedy secret weapon whose consistent scene-stealing seemed to augur larger roles in larger projects.
