Billie Eilish's Mom Made An Undercover Appearance In An Episode Of The Office

It's honestly amazing how well music sensation Billie Eilish and the hit NBC sitcom "The Office" go together. Eilish is in the ideal demographic for the show's continuing success, to the point where Eilish sampled some dialogue from the TV series for her song "my strange addiction." The sample comes from "The Office" episode "Threat Level Midnight," where a bunch of the characters come together to watch a fictional movie starring their very own Michael Scott (Steve Carell). 

It seems as though "The Office" cast members enjoyed their cameo on Eilish's album to the point where Billboard had the singer interviewed by Rainn Wilson, who played Dwight Schrute on the sitcom. Wilson asked her questions related to "The Office," and it's clear Eilish knows her stuff. However, it's just been uncovered that Eilish's connection to "The Office" goes even deeper than just a borderline obsession. Her mother actually played a role in the episode "Goodbye, Toby Part 1."

Billie Eilish's mother worked as a voice actress on The Office

This information was revealed in an episode of the "Office Ladies" podcast hosted by Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey. On the December 20 episode, the two hosts unveiled that they'll have an upcoming appearance by Billie Eilish herself on the podcast. The two were positively ecstatic to speak with the young singer, and while Eilish's episode will come down the line, the two did reveal how she told them about her mother's role in "The Office."

Eilish told them that her mom had a role in "Goodbye, Toby Part 1," to which Fischer responded, "We were like, 'What??!' and she said, 'Yeah, my mom was also a voice actress, and her voice is on The Office,' and then it turns out that she was in 'Goodbye Toby Part 1.'" Eilish's mom, whose name is Maggie Baird, comes in at the part where Phyllis (Phyllis Smith) is making phone calls to find an anti-gravity machine for Toby's (Paul Lieberstein) going away party, as per Michael's request. The woman on the other end of the line is Baird, acting incredulously that anyone would have such a request. 

The Billie Eilish episode of "Office Ladies" airs on January 4, 2023.
