10. Craig Robinson

Clerk – “The One with Princess Consuela” – S10E14

Craig Robinson was still in the beginning stages of his acting career when he got the part as a courthouse clerk where Phoebe goes to change her name to Princess Consuela Bananahammock. Phoebe makes the decision after finding out that she can pick any name she wants rather than having to choose between being Phoebe Buffay or Phoebe Hannigan or even Phoebe Buffay-Hannigan. Robinson, as the clerk, flatly declares that he has absolutely no interest or concern as to which name Phoebe chooses.

At that time, Robinson’s acting experience included a role on a tv show called Lucky that only lasted one season and a one-episode role on The Bernie Mac Show. He had a few other television roles before making a name for himself in movies like Pineapple Express and Zack and Miri Make a Porno. He returned to television, playing Reg Mackworthy on Eastbound and Down followed by his role as Darryl Philbin on The Office.

Most recently, he appeared in the second season of Mr. Robot, airing on the USA Network. Lisa Kudrow and Craig Robinson recently reunited in Table 19 playing a couple whose marriage is on the rocks but they’re forced to deal with each other when they’re assigned to the same table at a wedding.
