7. David Wallace

David Wallace had no idea what he was in for when he signed on to become Dunder Mifflin’s CFO, and viewers had no idea how crazy his story would turn out over the course of the series. The practical thinking boss man had his ups and downs with Michael as well as the rest of The Office before his exit from Dunder Mifflin when they were purchased by Sabre. While many thought that was the end, Wallace’s invention “Suck It” was purchased by the military, allowing him to return Steve Jobs style to reacquire Dunder Mifflin. The man’s journey should be held in much higher regard, and the fact that he also is a crucial part of several of the show’s funniest moments should all be more than enough to up his overall value when it comes to his ranking among the rest.

8. Charles Miner

Idris Elba has become one of the most sought after actors in the industry and has starred in some of the biggest films Hollywood has released in the past decade. But some actually forget that he was once on The Office as Charles Miner as the no-nonsense businessman that took over after Ryan failed to take over for Jan. He was completely immune to Jim’s charms, Angela’s advances, Kelly’s infatuation, and Dwight’s nonsense. His arrival caused the Michael Scott Paper Company’s inception and ignited the cold war between the two paper factions, only to have his final appearance be during a heated volleyball game that resulted in the reveal of Pam’s pregnancy with Jim. The bottom line is any character Idris Elba plays is an icon, and he should be remembered as one of the best ever to grace The Office set.
