Craig Robinson has played some great roles throughout his career, including Darryl Philbin on The Office and Matheson in Pineapple Express. He also portrays a former detective in the new Fox series Ghosted. But one of his more recent titles is “vegan,” and he’s not playing around.

Following his switch to vegan eating, Robinson became noticeably more fit. “I lost a bunch of weight. I lost 50 pounds,” he told Harry Connick Jr. during a taping of the talk show Harry earlier this month. The actor also admitted that going vegan was much easier than he’d anticipated, adding that there are tons of great vegan restaurants and dishes to choose from.
