NBC presented a preview yesterday and will be doing their official presentation today.

Andy Buckley on Hungover Radio

Andy Buckley Hungover RadioWould you like a chance to talk to The Office’s Andy Buckley?

Maybe ask him what’s going on with our favorite CFO David Wallace? Or if the Suck It is at Target yet? :)

He’s hanging out at Hungover Radio, a Sunday morning Internet radio show hosted by his buddy Marcus Edwardes. “Great music, interviews, games, general silliness and insipidity are the order of the day.” (NSFW for explicit content)

HR streams live this morning at 10am PST, and Andy will be in the sidekick chair!

Photos of the day: set visit 2010

I visited The Office set in March while they filmed the last two episodes of Season 6 (what they call “cross-boarding”).

A more detailed report will come later of course, but here are a few non-spoilerish photos. Enjoy! :)

B.J. Novak Mindy Kaling

B.J. Novak and Mindy Kaling get their makeup touched up by LaVerne right before shooting the Anthropologie scene in The Office episode The Chump.

Right before I took the photo, I said to them, “I’m taking an action shot of you guys, don’t look at the camera!” Mindy started laughing and B.J. looked straight at the camera. :)

More photos starting on the next page.
