Phyllis From 'The Office' Was A Cardinals Cheerleader

We’ve known Phyllis Smith for a few years now as Phyllis from The Office. This weekend you can see her in her first big movie role as Lynn in Bad Teacher. Turns out Phyllis was a cheerleader for the St. Louis Cardinals and also did some burlesque dancing in her day. You would think that Michael Scott would have brought that up at some point. It certainly explains some of the back story of her character.

You can listen to a interview with Phyllis at St. Louis radio station Y98.
