We've seen Ed Helms show off his banjo chops as Andy Bernard on "The Office," including in this backstage clip. Now the man who was once the boss at Dunder Mifflin is planning the debut album of his bluegrass group The Lonesome Trio, which features two of his former classmates from Oberlin College. Of course, Helms isn't the only fast-picking funnyman. Steve Martin has won two Grammy Awards for his banjo recordings. Martin will join Helms on Saturday, May 5, at a festival Helms organizes, The L.A. Bluegrass Situation.
