He has a lot going on...
In an interview with IGN, Craig Robinson spoke about the series finale of The Office, his role in This Is the End and more.
On if the series finale of The Office was emotional: "It was emotional, it was a lot of people crying and stuff. I feel I didn't earn the cry that a lot of them earned. Because a lot of them were there for every single episode, I wasn't. So part of me feels like, okay, you know I'm going to miss seeing these guys, and this was an amazing experience, but I don't feel like I earned the tears as much as a lot of those characters did."
On if Michael Scott will cameo: "I wish, I wish that that was the case. You know it was a big question: "Was he coming back?" And it was like, he said his good-bye, so they didn't want to overshadow the whole finale with that, because Michael had already said his good-bye."
On Hot Tub Time Machine 2: "Yes, we start shooting in June. I've seen the script, Josh Heald, who wrote the first Hot Tub Time Machine, is back for this one. With any sequel you want to duplicate what people love about it, but also bring in something different to the table, and I think Josh did a good job of that."
On if This Is The End has a balance between jokes and story: "Oh yeah, you've got Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Jay Baruchel and James Franco and they all understand story and jokes; and with Seth and Evan Goldberg directing you get a lot of improv."
