Deangelo Vickers is officially Regional Manager in "The Inner Circle". He considers himself to be a professional juggler, even though he juggles invisible juggling balls. He plays the song Bring Me To Life by Evanescence through cds during his juggling routine. The entire office believe Deangelo to be extremely childish and incapable to be manager. Yet the only employees that are impressed with his "juggling skills" are Kevin Malone and Creed Bratton.
As Regional Manager he sets up an Inner Circle of his favorite employees which includes Kevin Malone, Darryl Philbin, Gabe Lewis, Jim Halpert(temporary), Andy Bernard(temporary). In The Inner Circle, Deangelo and his favorites play Nerf basketball. Later, Jim challenged Deangelo to dunk on a basket 15 feet away. He accepted, but after dunking, the hoop collapses on him, and he is sent to the hospital. He later reappeared in the office dressed in a hospital smock while speaking gibberish. He was sent back to the hospital where he is not seen again.
In the producers cut of "Search Committee" Jo lists all the former managers, mentioning Deangelo as "The 2nd idiot dunks himself to death!"
In the "Lotto", Deangelo was mentioned to be dead by Darryl. Yet new regional manager Andy Bernard stated that Deangelo wasn't dead, it was only his brain that died. But in the next episode, he himself subsequently dies.
Deangelo is widely regarded by the Dunder-Mifflin crew as a brash, obstinate and opinionated boss. He is welcomed at first by employees trying to win his favour, but then loses more and more employee respect. His superiors think he is an incompetent as well.
- Deangelo has 4 children (1 is a son) and a cousin. His cousin cracked a formula for a popular soda so Deangelo couldn't buy it. Deangelo still drinks his cousin's. According to a deleted scene in The Inner Circle, Deangelo has a brother.
