As we recently learned via an interview with Mindy Kaling at Entertainment Weekly, the return of Kelly Kapoor to The Office before the end of the final season isn't out of the realm of possibility, which would be nice considering her rather anti-climatic departure from the show in the premiere. (Then again, her abrupt "See ya suckers! Exeunt KELLY" is totally in line with the character.) The interview got us thinking about other actors and actresses who played two TV roles at the same time. Some couldn't be more different, while others are clearly cut from the same cloth -- but all of them warped our brains a bit. We've rounded up 12 examples below.
