Perhaps taking a cue from the Scranton Strangler, Baumgartner will in this season’s 22nd episode, titled “Fatal,” play a man who at an unexpected crossroads in his life goes on a killing spree.

Since The Office wrapped its run last May, Baumgartner has guested on such shows as Rake, Mike & Molly and Hot in Cleveland.
