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!

From Wikipedia:

Born in Cuba, Nunez moved to Union City, New Jersey when he was fourteen years old.[2] 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.[3]

Woa – almost became a dentist?  A fine career I’m sure, but what would the on-screen accounting team of Angela and Kevin be without Oscar?!
While Oscar plays a gay man in the show (who catches the eye of Angela’s Senator husband in this season…spoiler alert for the most recent episose) in real life he just got married to his longtime girlfriend Carla May of last year.  Another interesting fact?  Do you remember ‘Ramon’ from ‘The Proposal’?  I didn’t realize it at the time (maybe I did but just didn’t really think about it till now) but the caterer, stripper, soda jerk, and finally clergyman in that flick was Oscar!
Oscar was behind a bit of excitement at the 2010 Miss USA Contest:
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.[4]
Good for you Oscar.  What’s a beauty pageant without a little controversy??!
