Fans of the hit television show The Office got a rare opportunity last night to get up close and personal with two stars of the show.

Brian Baumgartner -- who portrayed Kevin Malone -- and Oscar Nunez -- who was Oscar Martinez -- visited the SIU-Carbondale campus as part of a nationwide college campus tour.

Baumgartner says he think remaking the show as it was is unlikely, but a reunion is not out of the question.

"I think getting the band back together again for a show or something, sure I think that's possible."

The two answered questions from a moderator, then took questions from the large crowd before Baumgartner signed copies of his new book Seriously Good Chili Cookbook.
