Here’s another cool pic of Donnie with a celebrity caught walking by our Office on Hollywood Blvd – Oscar Nunez from The Office!
As a big fan of The Office, I thought it would be interesting to find more out about Oscar, who seems like a really nice guy. Just look at that genuine smile!
So what did he do before The Office, what else is he working on, and why did they name his character Oscar Martinez, keeping his first name but changing his last? Coincidence, or is there a story there?
Some interesting background on Oscar? He was born in Cuba!
Born in Cuba, Nunez moved to Union City, New Jersey when he was fourteen years old. He is bilingual in English and Spanish. Having attended various colleges in New York, including Fashion Institute of Technology and the Parsons School of Design for writing, Nunez became a certified dental technician from Magna Institute of Dental Technology.
Nunez appeared as one of eight judges in the 2010 Miss USA Contest, posing a controversial question about the Arizona illegal immigrant law to Miss Oklahoma USA, Morgan Elizabeth Woolard, the first runner-up. Nunez was booed by the audience before finishing the question; however he asked the audience to wait until he finished the question before they reacted. Although Miss Woolard replied that she supports the law as a state rights issue, she added that she is against racial profiling.
