I think Ed Helms has been an awesome addition to the show this year - he was the best thing about Stamford, and his utterly awkward and crazy attempts to infiltrate the Scranton team were hilarious to watch. Already had a tremendous amount of respect for him from the Daily Show, but it really shows his talent, that he's been able to so completely meld into The Office world. It can be really challenging to introduce new major characters without totally throwing the cast chemistry off balance, but Ed Helms has definitely made it happen here.
And he sings! In practically every episode!

Me tooo! I used to be "enh" on Andy but man has Ed Helms made me love him. Especially since The Merger. So he's definately back for next season? Yippee!
I have a surprisingly big crush on this man.

His Yanni sing-a-long was funny also "He is eating... his unicorn food!" haha

At the bottom, there's a link to a song written by Ed with him on lead vocals. It is really beautiful. The other songs that I've listened to on their site and their MySpace page aren't bad, but that one is definitely the best.
"All Gone to Hell" is a beautiful song. It's on active rotation on my ipod.

I found a site where you can see some clips of Ed on the Daily Show. When it loads, type "Ed Helms" in the search box on the top of the page.

I didn't watch the Daily Show regularly before, so I had no idea who he was when I heard he was joining The Office. I was initially resistent to any new people joining the show, but I have since come to love Andy as part of The Office crew. I'm so glad they made him a regular cast member.
It looks like he has a great career ahead of him. I'm really looking forward to that movie he'll be making with Judd Apatow, too!

When he joined the cast, I wondered if my Krasinski crush would eclipse my Helms crush - surprisingly, it's turned out to be the other way around. But really, between those two and B.J. Novak and then flipping over to Jensen Ackles on Supernatural, I pretty much spend my Thursday nights giggling like a schoolgirl.

Carell has just been so much funnier in so many other things that I don't really appreciate him that much on the Daily Show. Same with Colbert now that he's on the Report. I have to say, Colbert is the number one guy that I'm hoping does a guest spot on The Office...although maybe Will Arnett would be good, too.

Oh my gosh, my life would be complete and I'd die!
Move over John Krasinski because Ed Helms is taking your place....well, ya'll can share the top spot, I'm not complaining. ;) Ed Helms seems like such a southern gentleman and that is an excellent quality in my book. From reading fan encounters he always seems so approachable and willing to just chat. I used to hate Andy because he was too over the top but now "Andy-Drew" is the highlight of most episodes. Especially Beach Games. I was laughing so hard at him that I couldn't hear anything else going on in the episode! It's so great to see how Ed handles post-anger management Andy. You can see his conflict of trying to remain calm so clearly on his face!
I adore Ed Helms! So glad he's a full-time cast member now!

By the way, on the homepage of the Funny or Die website, Will Ferrell wrote up a small blurb about Zombie-American and Ed:
Ed Helms in Zombie American - One of the best pieces we've had yet. There's two more chapters and I'm happy about that. I like Ed Helms. Whenever we meet there's crazy chemistry. Not quite gay but really damn close.

I'm not actually sure the Zombie American short was made specifically for a website; I saw it at the 2006 (or 2005 maybe?) Boston Independent Film Festival. Trikyuw, I'm glad you're directing people to it. However, when Ed joined TO, I honestly keep seeing his zombie face for the first 2-3 eps he was in -- freaked me out!
Well - whatever. But it's hilarious nonetheless.

This was definitely my experience. I was able to meet several cast members in the green room after the Paley festival, and though they were all friendly and great, he actually engaged me in conversation for a few minutes, and I walked away very impressed. And also thinking, has he always been that hot? I know actors hate to hear they're better looking in person, but in his case, it's true.

Why? I would love to hear that! Although, I'm not an actor...
I've heard a few mention they don't love that comment. I'm assuming because they make their living on screen, and they'd like to look their best on screen where most viewers see them. But I find 3-D is usually going to be better than 2-D.

Truthfully, my love officially started with the Rainbow Connection moment and grew a little with Rockin' Robin. But now it is full blown love.
He is a great comedian.

Ed Helms, "The Office": As anger-managing Cornell grad Andy Bernard, Helms would shift from obsequiousness to obstinacy on a moment's notice, generating laughs either way.
