Rashida Jones in Women’s Health Magazine

Women’s Health Magazine talks to Rashida Jones in their April issue:

I rode the same school bus as Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian,” recalls Rashida Jones, dressed in post-Pilates sweats and scarfing a vegetarian feast at a West Hollywood tearoom. But unlike her classmates, Jones, 32, is known for more than partying, paparazzi, and porn. She plays piano and a little guitar, graduated from Harvard with a degree in comparative religion, and has sung on two of Maroon 5’s hit albums. She also sits on the board of Peace Games, a charity that teaches kids to resolve conflicts non-violently.

John Krasinski in Boston Magazine

It must be John Krasinski week. :)

Boston magazine has named The Office’s John Krasinski one of the “61 New Best Things about Boston” and put him on the cover.

As Jim, the amiable, moderately ambitious voice of reason, John Krasinski — who can also be seen starring this month opposite Renée Zellweger in the new Clooney-directed, football-themed romantic comedy Leatherheads — calls on dry wit and a cache of goofy looks to express the disdain he feels for his more ridiculous office-mates.

Andy Buckley at Scranton St. Patrick’s Parade

Scranton St. Patrick's Parade The Office

Andy Buckley (“David Wallace”) appeared in this year’s Scranton Saint Patrick’s Parade two weekends ago.

UPDATE: Andy was kind enough to write up a little trip report for OfficeTally — thanks Andy!

Andy’s report

Once again, the folks in Scranton proved that ‘there ain’t no party like a Scranton party …’ Took the red-eye to Philadelphia and Ken, owner of the LimoGuy (best Limo service in the entire NEPA area) was right there with Dunkin’ Donuts coffee in hand ready to roll. If you ever need a Limo in NEPA, Ken The LimoGuy is the guy to call …

Almost 100,000 people lining the streets. Over 1 million pints of Guinness consumed between the hours of 7 AM Saturday when the bars opened and 4 AM Sunday the next morning when last call was announced. I tried to do my part in that effort but was clearly an amateur.

Saw many many Dunder Mifflin signs along the parade route and heard many a shout out from the good people braving the cold weather. A lot of fun.

Roland Greco, a buddy of mine and ironically the Michael Scott look alike winner from the Convention and Amy ___ (I don’t have her last name I’m sorry) — the Angela look a like winner rode in the car in front of me — a couple of troopers as it was cold …

The bars were filled by 8 AM with the younger folks, getting their St. Patty’s drink on … hats off to the town, for keeping it very orderly considering the town turns into one gigantic Delta House — for that one day a year.

Met Miss Pennsylvania Rachel Brooks — a very nice gal. Talked with Governor Eddie Rendell a little bit — sharp guy. Did not get a chance to say hello to the local favorite, Senator Hillary Clinton, but as an Irishman from Boston, I did get quite a kick out of meeting and having a nice chat with Max Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy’s youngest son who is a huge fan of the show.

The biggest highlights were going from pub to pub with local legend Tim Holmes, from the Scranton Times, and hearing just about everyone in attendance shouting out “Dunder Mifflin!!! When are the new episodes coming back on???!!! Dunder Mifflin!!!!” Just a blast of an environment.

Scranton’s 20-piece bag pipe band was going from pub to pub as well. Grabbed slices during the night from Brunetti’s and Alfredo’s Pizza Cafe, had pints at Cooper’s, Farley’s, and of course at the Radisson.

Threw back a couple of pints with Sara Hailstone and Michelle Dempsey who along with Tim organized the convention … and they’re talking up the next one.

Keep your NY, Boston and Chicago St. Patty’s Day parades … give me Scranton’s any time. A ton of fun and an electric city filled with some great people. Thanks. — AB
