April 14, 2009

There was a break in today’s on-location shooting to announce The Office’s 100th episode to the press. I got to watch the festivities. Executive producer Greg Daniels gave an enormously heartfelt speech about the show’s early struggles, and then proceeded to name a long list of people who never stopped believing in the show’s magic. I almost teared up!

There was an enormous cake to cut, after which Rainn Wilson put his entire fist into the cake and tried to shake hands with people.

Here are a few of my snapshots:

  1. Congratulations Office Crew!

    Getty Images has lots of pictures of the event :)

    Including a picture of Riann putting his hand in the cake :)

  2. What a HUGE accomplishment! That’s what she said :)

    Office cast and crew: Your hard work and faith has made the “little engine that could” turn into a cult-classic with legions of fans. Yes, that is right. Legions.

    As a fan, I feel so lucky to be part of such a wonderful show. And as a terrified-of-graduating-in-May student, I have gained inspiration to begin a career in journalism – a far cry from my Marketing degree :) Thank you!

  3. Haha for a second I thought that the cake actually had Officetally.com written on it!
    So proud of the Office gang!

  4. Congratulations to The Office cast and crew for all their hard work and dedication! 100 episodes is quite a feat.

  5. Hmm, Bob Vance isn’t wearing a Scranton shirt! Maybe, just maybe, by the season finale, both Michael and Jenna are back in the fold as Dunder Mifflin employees? Oh and Ryan too!

  6. I bet that cake tasted sweeter than a pretzel with all the toppings. Congrats to The Office on their 100th episode!

  7. AAH I’m so jealous of you!! I wanna meet the Office cast like it’s my JOB! lolol It’s pretty much my life goal right now. :)

  8. In addition to Steve, Jenna, and BJ being there in Scranton branch t-shirts, I was pleased to note that the character of Charles does NOT appear to be there (saying this with the understanding that Idris Elba seems to be a lovely person in real life)–I’m all for mixing things up a bit, but the character is just too mean to exist much longer in the Office universe without ripping a hole in the time-space continuum. Then again, maybe he just wasn’t in the shot because he’s a guest star…

  9. Too bad I could not have put my Wilton cake decorating lessons to practical use!

    Many congrats to the cast and crew of “The Office!”

  10. Why am I not surprised that Rainn put his hand in the cake? Such a Dwight thing to do.

    Here’s a link to Getty Images photos of the event:

    Did you get a piece, tanster, or did they make you wait like Milton and you didn’t get anything and threaten to set the building on fire? ;)

    [from tanster: i got a piece! after the press event, they moved the cake to the set so that everyone could get a piece. :)

  11. Congrats to the entire cast & crew of The Office! YEAH! Very great accomplishment and this better be a DANG good episode! :) we have high expectations after 100 episodes you know!

  12. YES! Michael, Pam and Ryan all with red Scranton shirts.

    Ain’t no party like a Scranton party, cause a Scranton party don’t stop!

  13. It looks like Michael, Ryan, and Pam will all be back at Dunder-Mifflin by the end of the season (thank God.) My guess is they merge the companies to get Michael’s newly signed clients.

  14. I’m betting DM is going to find MSP as a threat and buy them out in a merger, making Michael Scott a rich, rich man (for negative 2 hours when he buys a fur coat from Burlington Coat Factory).
