EW has confirmed that The Office star Oscar Nuñez has been cast in Lifetime’s Prosecuting Casey Anthony. Nuñez will play Anthony’s headline-grabbing attorney Jose Baez and face off against Rob Lowe, who we previously reported has signed on to play prosecutor Jeff Ashton. Taking on the dramatic role of Baez shouldn’t be too much of a stretch for the stone-faced Nuñez, who often plays Dunder Mifflin’s comedic straight man.
