Jenna Fischer’s Office Space

Atlanta’s entertainment magazine INsite talked to Jenna Fischer for its January issue:

“… I think so much of the show is about what we say when we’re not speaking. But also, like, it is a subtext show, you know? And I think it’s one of the challenges to, like, have a conversation with the character of Jim that’s very, you know, acceptable and appropriate, while all the while communicating to the audience that this is a person I have a huge crush on.”

Tipster: Jenna


  1. Note to the writers: I love Jenna Fischer. Adore her to no end. But please, I beg of you, if she starts talking about the future of Jim and Pam, run in the opposite direction :)

  2. That was an interesting interview…but isn’t she working on her own movie right? I think MTV reported that a little while ago.

    I cannot take it when Jenna talks about not being attached to Jim and Pam being together forever. You’re shattering my illusion!!! I think that the writers have my back though ;)

  3. I love Jenna Fischer, she seems so down to earth. I really hope this strike ends soon! I can not take waiting any longer for that “Dinner Party” episode!

  4. i really like her response to the last question she was asked. gosh, it kinda sounds like she’s talking about her own life right there. plus its interesting to hear her take on the pam-jim relationship.

  5. I love Jenna. I really do. She’s amazing…but I like that the writer’s aren’t listening to her thoughts on the future of Jim and Pam.

  6. trust me, where she lives, people do like, talk like that, like, all the time. I was born in the valley.

  7. I think it would be so depressing if Jim and Pam just moved on from each other. I get what she’s saying, and that storyline would be great for an Indie movie or something, but not for a show that’s been playing this lovey-dovey cute relationship for the past 4 years.

  8. Well, she did say she thinks Jim & Pam will make it the end.

    And she’s right of course, that that’s the kind of thing that happens in real life . . . but that’s exactly why I need my fictional relationships to work out!

  9. I agree, I love Jenna. She’s great, smart, beautiful, a wonderful actress and nobody could play Pam like she does. BUT….I HATE when she talks about Jim and Pam only being together so that they can prepare each other for the real love of their lives.

    If we go through this whole series and those two don’t end up together…I can’t even verbalize what I would do. I guess it’s a little disappointing for me to hear her say that because I want her to be as invested in them as I am. Thankfully the writers seem to have some actual sense where Jim and Pam are concerned.

  10. Call me crazy, but I find Jenna’s idea about Jim and Pam very interesting. It could be something very unique and different than what is done in most television series. It could show two real characters that grow and change and are not your regular relationship cardboard cutouts.

  11. I wouldn’t have a problem with them not being together forever. Everything about their relationship has been realistic so far…stuff like that happens. Also, I’ve seen that pic before but DANG does she look hot.

  12. Jenna knows that Pam’s true love is Toby…you heard it here first (sarcasm mode off).

    I found the article interesting concerning the Pam and Jim dynamic. As long as the writers keeps the relationship real, then that is all I could ask.

  13. What she said about Jim and Pam- Eh. It’s interesting. I would be okay with it happening on any other show that I wasn’t so attached to. But I really hope Jim and Pam do stay together.

  14. I really felt like Jenna is trying to reach out to me in that article……..I’m not imagining that am I? Should I follow up with her on that? Maybe I should ask my wife first ??? :-)

  15. I wasn’t expecting what she said about Jim and Pam! I basically agree with everything candicane150 said.

    Doesn’t it seem like she contradicted what she’s said in the past? I feel like I always read that she does want them to be together. Can anyone back me up on this?
