St. Louis Magazine interviews Jenna Fischer. An excerpt:

Is working on the set at The Office like many other offices in certain ways?

Like most offices, all of the guys talk about their fantasy-football teams, and the women want to strangle them. But Steve [Carell] doesn’t participate in fantasy football; he comes over and talks about shopping and Target with the girls. We really like Steve during fantasy-football time.

  • Article: Dwight Schrute: What I’ve Learned by Office writers Anthony Farrell and Charlie Grandy.
  • Article: The Onion’s A.V. Club names The Office’s ‘Dinner Party’ one of The Best Television Episodes Of 2008.
  • Article: Ricky Gervais is far from unpleasant.
  • Fan report: from Tallyhead Laundry&Betrayal — “This weekend my husband and I went to see the show ‘Dividing the Estate’ on Broadway. One of the stars of the ensemble production is Devon Abner, who played Devon on the office! (Remember, he was fired by Michael in ‘Halloween.’ Then he is in a great deleted scene from ‘Valentine’s Day,’ where Michael runs into him in NYC and Devon starts chasing him). Devon was great in the play, he had the same straight intensity that he had on The Office and was the straight man among an otherwise funny cast.”
