NPR’s The Bryant Park Project has posted a terrific uncut 30-minute version of their interview with B.J. Novak.
B.J. talks about the evolution of ‘The Office’, elaborates on the last scene of ‘Chair Model’ (including parody lyrics of ‘Candle in the Wind’!), and discusses the writing process and his characterization of Ryan. One of my favorite lines of the interview is when B.J. says “start with what’s true, keep what’s funny.”
Really thoughtful and interesting!
