Beth Grant: Dwight’s ‘Dinner Party’ date

The Onion’s A.V. Club interviews actress Beth Grant, who talks at length about her role as Dwight’s babysitter/date in The Office’s Season 4 episode, Dinner Party.

Here’s a snippet:

Greg Daniels, I worked with on King Of The Hill … He had seen No Country For Old Men and really liked it, and as soon as they went back to work, he called me to do the “Dinner Party” episode. The director won an Emmy; it was this great, great, dark episode … Their fight is so embarrassing to everyone concerned — and with Dwight bringing me as his date, who’s also his babysitter, it’s just sick!

She goes on to talk about what it was like working with Steve Carell and Rainn Wilson.
