Heading down to The Office

March 22, 2010

I’m back at home now. I spent three amazing days on set and on location as they crossboarded the filming of the last two episodes of The Office.

They needed to shoot two episodes simultaneously because Friday was Steve Carell’s last day of shooting for the season. This means that for the three days I was there, Steve appeared in EVERY scene that was shot. That totaled to over 30 scenes and more than 30 hours on set!

I was truly inspired by Steve’s stamina and grace and good humor through it all.

I might post a few more non-spoilerish photos of the day, but aside from that, I won’t be posting any more information until we get closer to the Season 6 finale on May 20th.

A GINORMOUS thank you once again to everyone at The Office for letting me come and hang out. Every night I would go back to my hotel utterly exhausted, barely able to stand or speak. I honestly don’t know how y’all do it!

xoxo to all. :) Jennie

P.S. Here is the OfficeTally archive of past set visits.

I am super excited to be visiting The Office this week!

I’ll be on the set with The Office cast, writers, and crew while they film scenes from the final two episodes of the season. I am told there may be some on location shooting.

If you have ideas for what I should do or questions I should ask while I’m down there, please post a comment. Thanks! :)

  1. If you could ask them about what the next few years holds? What’s in the foreseeable future for the show?

  2. Things you should do? CAMEO! Also, if you can get a picture with Jam and Cecelia, that would be pretty cool. Dunno if baby is around set though.

  3. I wish I’d known you were visiting this week! I had to choose between this week and next week, and I chose next. I’M SO FREAKING EXCITED!!

    [from tanster: very cool! you’ll have a blast!]

  4. are any other of the Dunder Mifflin sites. aka Utica.. around ala Dunder Mifflin Saber Utica?

  5. Does Todd Packer still work for Dunder Mifflin? Could you ask Mindy about the show she was supposed to be developing? Is there still talk of a spin-off for the show?

  6. First of all, get a suitcase that’s big enough to fit all of us tallyheads.
    Second, ask them what’s in store for the rest of the season because I feel like now that the baby episode is over there haven’t been a lot of spoilers
    Thanks so much and by the way you are the luckiest person in the world!!!

    [from tanster: thank you! i am totally excited!]

  7. Since you mentioned they are filming for the last two episodes do we know if this is an hour long? Perhaps a two parter? Have a great time and let us know anything you can.

  8. We’ve seen that Andy and Erin have a slight parallel to Jim and Pam (albeit their storyline has moved a little faster)…will we be seeing a wedding and NardPup anytime soon?

  9. How do you get to visit the set? It’s really awesome and everything, I’m just wondering … HOW? I would love to do that sometime. Also, suggestion for when you are there, get some pictures with Ed Helms.

  10. Ask Brain if the advice he got from Hank Haney has been helping his golf game. It didn’t seem to work on the show.

  11. If you could ask Jenna what projects (outside of The Office) she’s working on, that would be great!

    And, Tanster, if you could, please take a peek into the writer’s room… What crazy antics are those guy’s up to??? This season has been awesome with the writing. They must be up to something…

  12. Ask John Krasinski how in the world he was able to go from Katy (Amy Adams) to Karen (Rashida Jones) to Pam (Jenna Fischer)? And then have Emily Blunt in real life? In short, how did he become the luckiest man alive?

  13. You do know you have the best job in the world, right?
    Enjoy! :)

    [from tanster: thank you. yes i do. :) ]

  14. Could you pretty please ask about this season’s commentaries on the future DVD? I liked hearing from craft services and the like but we had some very big events happen this season and I gotta have my insider dirt!!! Also, please let EVERYONE know that this season has been phenomenal and that we really appreciate all their work!! Thank you and I hope you have a ton of fun! I’m looking forward to your next cameo!!!
