stepliana over at the LiveJournal Office community has transcribed The Improper Bostonian’s interview with B.J. Novak.
IB: Most excruciating moment on the show that you had to act?
BJN: One time I had to look mildly surprised when I was actually moderately surprised. That was a pretty big stretch.
IB: Well, we all know how expressive you are with your eyes from that appearance on Leno. You had Helen Mirren wetting herself.
BJN: Yes, I think it’s clear who the better actor is. She gets all the roles that I turn down.
IB: So you were asked to play the queen?
BJN: Yeah, I turned it down, and now that she has all those nominations I’m kicking myself.
