Craig Robinson is an American actor and stand-up comedian best known for his role as the assassin Matheson in the 2008 film Pineapple Express, and as Dunder-Mifflin warehouse manager Darryl Philbin in the mockumentary television series The Office.

Robinson previously starred on the series Lucky with John Corbett. He has guest starred on numerous TV shows, including NBC's Friends, Bernie Mac and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Robinson can also be seen in Tyler Perry's film Daddy's Little Girl, the recently released film Knocked Up, and in D-War. In addition, Robinson recently wrapped shooting the lead role in Judd Apatow's, Pineapple Express.

Robinson has also performed on late night, including The Jimmy Kimmel Show, Sketchpad and Real Time with Bill Maher.

Robinson first shined at the 1998 Montreal Just For Laughs Festival, which led to a development deal at Fox Broadcasting Company. Robinson also won the 1998 Oakland Comedy Festival as well as the Miller Genuine Draft 1996 Comedy Search.

He attributes his wit, charm and comedic gifts first to family, and then to the days when imitating Richard Nixon brought laughter to everyone.

His first real taste of performing was in college, where the extraordinary material, delivery and commanding stage presence, was developed. Robinson had a gift, and the Chicago comedy clubs took notice, as audiences raved about this fresh, about-face comedy.

Robinson hopes to follow in the footsteps of previous Montreal, Oakland and Miller Genuine Draft performers including Jay Leno, Jamie Foxx, Ray Romano and D.L. Hughley.

In 2015 he starred in the short-lived NBC sitcom Mr. Robinson, in which a musician looking to earn some extra cash takes a job as the new substitute music teacher in efforts of winning the affections of a former high school girlfriend Victoria.
