“Oscar Nunez of NBC’s ‘˜The Office’ is the Gayest Straight Man on Television.”
Oscar Nunez, who plays Oscar Martinez on NBC’s “The Office,” is a comedic actor. His background, in sketch comedy and improv, reflects that. So true to his work, Nunez even went to the extent of humoring up his bio. Of course, this wasn’t known going into the interview. Nunez recently spoke to me about his bio, his gay role on television, and if Steve Carell is really like his character on “The Office.”
Q – I was reading that you were adopted and fostered by Cuban parents and then later came to the states to study improv and comedy. Is that true?
A – You got your hands on a bio and it was totally comedy stuff. I am Cuban, my parents are Cuban and I was not adopted.
