Look at all the yummy fake picnic food on the table. The cupcakes were so cute!
Setting up for scene #19 — “I lied to Kevin …” or as I like to call it, the soup snake scene.
That’s director Ken Kwapis talking to Steve Carell. Director of Photography Randall Einhorn is shooting.
Shooting the scene. Steve is looking directly at Ken while he is saying his lines.
That’s Paul Lieberstein, B.J. Novak, and Mindy Kaling watching filming of Steve’s scene.
As it is with all scenes, Steve did multiple takes, and he would often crack himself up or people around him as he would improvise other silly phrases besides “soup snakes.” (Sorry, I can’t remember any of the others!)
Anyway, at one point, I hear Mindy say to B.J., “We better leave so that Steve can get through his scene!” Heehee.
Rehearsal of the last part of scene #21, “Dwight picks volleyball team positions.”
From left to right, you can see Creed Bratton, Ellie Kemper, Bobby Ray Shafer, Phyllis Smith, Kate Flannery, Leslie David Baker, and various crew members.
It looks like a team huddle, doesn’t it?
