It looks like State Senator Robert Lipton is in this week’s episode of The Office. “The Target” will air on November 29. Here’s a promotional picture taken from the episode:
Here’s the episode promo with Jack Coleman:
The Office: “The Target”
The episode synopsis:
ANGELA DISCOVERS THE TRUTH—Angela (Angela Kinsey) discovers her husband’s affair with Oscar (Oscar Nunez) and goes to Dwight (Rainn Wilson) for help. Jim (John Krasinski) needs a favor from Stanley (Leslie David Baker) and Phyllis (Phyllis Smith) who milk it for all it’s worth. Pam (Jenna Fischer) begins painting her mural in the warehouse but gets distracted by Pete (Jake Lacy) who is building a tower of complaint cards.
Edit- Even though NBC released the promo still of Jack Coleman, he didn’t appear in the episode.
Be prepared from some Jack Coleman moments on tonight’s episode of The Office, “The Whale”:
“Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) is tasked with selling paper to a woman from the Scranton White Pages, so Pam Halpert (Jenna Fischer) and the women of the office teach him how to interact with women. Angela Lipton (Angela Kinsey) fears that her husband, Robert (Jack Coleman), is cheating on her and enlists Oscar Martinez (Oscar Nunez) to help her spy on him at his yoga class. Meanwhile, Andy Bernard (Ed Helms) skypes into the office from his boat and Toby Flenderson (Paul Lieberstein) convinces several of the men in the office to grow mustaches for “Movember”.
PS: if you missed it, he also appeared in last week’s episode, “The Boat”!
Here’s the synopsis for tonight’s episode “The Boat”:
ANDY IS FORCED TO STEP UP WHEN HIS FAMILY COMES UNDER HARD TIMES-JACK COLEMAN (“HEROES”) GUEST STARS– Andy (Ed Helms) must man up when his Dad blows all the family money.

Jack Coleman appeared on last week’s (Oct 26) The Office, episode 5 of season 9. He got to kiss a dinosaur and it was absolutely awesome!
He is also confirmed to be in episode 9×07, but it has been postponed to Nov 15 instead of Nov 8. Keep your eyes open for him, he sometimes appears in The Office unannounced!
David Toussaint also wrote a very interesting article on Jack’s roles, with a particular focus on his gay roles and on how he handled fame as one of the first gay lead characters on television, as well as Jack’s thoughts about being gay in Hollywood.

PS: if David Toussaint’s name rings any bells, it’s because he’s Beth Toussaint’s brother. And if you don’t know who Beth Toussaint is, I strongly suggest looking up Jack’s bio on this website!
