Leslie David Baker, part of the ensemble that kept people laughing on the long-running comedy hit “The Office,” is giving up plans to launch a spin-off series featuring his character, Stanley Howard.
Baker is returning the money he raised from a failed Kickstarter campaign aimed at launching a “Stanley” spin-off. Baker played the role of the grumpy and disgruntled paper salesman, Stanley Hudson, in all nine seasons of NBC’s popular sitcom.
In 2020, the actor went viral for launching a Kickstarter campaign aimed at creating a spin-off of “The Office” centered on Stanley. The project raised $110,000, but never got off the ground because of the COVID-19 pandemic and now the dual writers and actors strikes.
