Charleston native Bobby Ray Shafer has a recurring role on the hit NBC show, "The Office."

Since "The Office" debut three years ago, Shafer has played the minor role of Bob Vance, owner of Vance Refrigeration. His character is the boyfriend/fiance of the character Phyllis. Over the next couple of weeks, Shafer figures to have an increased presence on the show as his character participates in his bachelor party and wedding.

WSAZ has maintained an email relationship with Shafer for the last several months. He shares his thoughts below.

"Greetings from the La-la! I hope all is well back in the W-V. Things are going pretty well here in Hollywood for this Mountaineer of late. I'm on a little TV show called 'THE OFFICE' and this week, Michael throws me a bachelor party and next week PHYLLIS AND I GET MARRIED!

I think it may be the best-worst wedding ever!

Best wishes,

Bobby Ray Shafer
BOB VANCE, VANCE REFRIGERATION"

You can watch "The Office" on WSAZ Thursday nights at 8:30.
