Discuss all things Oscar.

Feb 20th 2006

i love that line, maybe the funniest of the first season. 2/15ths doesn't make any sense. but it is hard to talk about their suffering!!

Feb 20th 2006

Did you know? Oscar plays the security guard to a gated community in the motion picture, The Italian Job. He makes several phone calls to a cable company and receives ample screen time. He also has a security guard hat.

Feb 20th 2006

Yeah, I noticed that a while back.

Does anybody know why he's he always on the phone?

Did you know? In the episode, The Fire, when the gang plays 'Desert Island' and 'Who would you do', Oscar says, immediately after Kevin, Pam. But he's gay. Or is he bisexual now. Yeah, he must say it to cover his sexuality, but...he seemed pretty sure about it. I think the homosexuality was not known by the writers beforehand, thus not realized by Oscar. Just some comments about underappreciated Oscar.

dlo, I'm gonna have to say that the homosexuality issue wasn't an issue at this point. I'm chalking it up to being one of those situations where you don't want to say something unless someone else says it first. I mean come on, the answer was obvious. Pam may not be as attractive as, say, Jenna Fischer (if that makes sense), but compared to the rest of the characters...

This isn't to say I think that the show has an unattractive rest of the female cast, just that makeup does a great job to make said actresses look more plain. And I've gone WAY off-topic.

Does anyone else find it strange that Oscar was dressed as a woman in Halloween? He seems to want to hide the fact he's gay (check out how he and Gill snatch their hands away on the couch with Dwight in The Secret, and he lied about who the flowers were from on Valentine's day), so it seems that women's clothes would be the last thing he'd want to wear in public. And he gets really offended by Michael's comment about showing his true colors.

Like dlo I guess it could be that Oscar's sexuality hadn't been considered by the writers at Halloween time...

I was watching Reno 911! on Comedy Central tonight and he was in it! He played a guy from homeland security who was training the cops of Reno. Turns out in the end that he was a fraud and robbed the evidence room. It was funny cause the gals all had a huge crush on him (all the guys had a crush on the gal that was with him). Most of the time he was wearing a white tank top and he looked pretty ripped!! I guess that's what we're missing underneath all of those nice long sleeved shirts he wears on the show! Oh and some of the context insinuated that he was gay which I found funny since he is on The Office also.

is gill with oscar at chili's in the dundies?

Apr 23rd 2006

ddker! Now that I think about it (I haven't seen that episode of RENO!911 in a long time) it IS Oscar!

Apr 24th 2006

That is one of my favorite episodes of Reno911. He is so hilarious as the instructor trying to teach these inept police officers how to fight terrorist after 9/11. (How he handles the skunk is too funny!)

I am so excited that he is now a regular member of The Office.

"If Jesus saw that he'd freak out Toby! He'd freak out!!!"

Clearly the funniest part about last night's episode.

May 7th 2006

I absolutely love Oscar Martinez.

It's more offense to me than hordcore porno!

May 12th 2006

I like how Oscar wasn't crazy about donating to the Boy Scouts, which aren't known for their progressive stance on homosexuality.

May 13th 2006

I'm so glad other people mentioned that episode of Reno! 911...that episode is amazing. "You have to wash the chemicals away from the vital organs!"

May 17th 2006

I like how Oscar wasn't crazy about donating to the Boy Scouts, which aren't known for their progressive stance on homosexuality.

Me too! I picked up on that the second time through--it seemed like he was a little too mad about giving to them, and then it clicked. Excellent attention to detail by the writers.

Feb 26th 2007

So has anyone seen the promos for a new series on Comedy Central in which our Oscar has a role? It's called Halfway Home, and looks pretty funny.

Makes me think that if Oscar can be on The Office and on Halfway Home, maybe Rashida can be on her new sitcom and the Office. Ouch.

Feb 26th 2007

Her radio interviews over the weekend definitely left that possibility open. She even said people do multiple shows all the time. She stopped short, however, of saying she'd be back, only that she wasn't leaving (which is technically true even if she only has six episodes left) and that she didn't want to leave (which is meaningless because she would never say otherwise even if it was true.)

That said, I hope she stays, just not with Jimbo.

Feb 26th 2007

That said, I hope she stays, just not with Jimbo.

Agreed.

Aug 27th 2008

Does anybody know why he's he always on the phone?

Yeah, why is that?

Aug 27th 2008

I think it's because he's a drug mule.

Aug 28th 2008

Does he poop balloons?

Aug 29th 2008

Oscar would enjoy this.

Aug 29th 2008

There are 10 types of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

This is very funny, ctf.

The AV Club interviewed Oscar today. My favorite part was this:

AVC: Are there any particular deleted scenes you're particularly sorry didn't make it into an episode?

ON: Yeah. There was the episode where we went to a job fair and then [John] Krasinski and Ed Helms and Brian went to play golf. There was a scene at the job fair—I had a scene with this girl, and she wanted to come work for us. I'm like, "Come work for us!" And she's like, "Oh, I never thought about it," I'm like "Yeah, come do it." And then when she comes and she's about to sign up, I change my mind, I'm like, "Isn't there something you really like?" And she's like, "I can play guitar." "That's it! Be a musician, please don't come work for us, find your soul, and be, live!" And I feel good about myself, and I kind of sit down and I look over and she's signing up with another paper company, Kinko's or something.

Oct 9th 2008

I loved that deleted scene. Oscar and I are soulmates.

Oct 9th 2008

Great interview. I liked what he said about being on The Match Game. It cracked me up.

May 22nd 2009

Is Oscar Gay in real life. He said something in one of the interview segments and I wasn't sure if it was implying he was or not. Here is the interview

May 22nd 2009

I think he said when the storyline came out that he called Daniels about it and he said he's not gay so he was joking about why they thought he'd be a good gay character.
