Though Steve is revered for his performance on The Office each week, he says he doesn't feel pressure to live up to the hype. "If you ever invited me to a cocktail party, I would so go against [the image people have of me]," he says.

"He's very quiet in real life," Tina says.

"Well, that's another way of saying pretty boring, I think, to meet me," Steve says. "I never really thought of myself as funny, per se. ... I don't sit and watch myself and say, 'Damn, that is hilarious.'"

The people Steve does find funny are Steve Martin, John Cleese and Peter Sellers, he says. "Those are people that I emulate and respect."
