EXCLUSIVE: Michael Scott Bobblehead 2.0

The Michael Scott Bobblehead is back, new and improved!
(And non-talking.)

The first shipment will be in stores this week, but the NBC Store is giving early access exclusively to OfficeTally readers!

(Doesn’t it look more like Michael than the old bobblehead?)

P.S. You can buy the new Michael bobblehead as part of the “Buy 2 bobbleheads, get Dwight Schrute FREE!” promo still going on.

Hair today, gone tomorrow

While watching last night’s episode of The Office ‘The Banker,’ I turned to my boyfriend and said, “what is up with Michael’s hair?”

Several of you commented about this as well.

Here’s what Kim, The Office’s lead hair stylist, says:

Actually, we started shooting that episode when we came back after our winter break (Nov-Dec) and Steve had his hair cut very short for the film he had just starred in so … I was merely trying to style him the same, but was unable to get an exact match … due to the difference in length. It was close though.

Basically, this is how Mr. Scott will look until his hair grows out. :-)

You will see gradually, over the next few episodes, his hair will grow out and look more like the ol’ Michael Scott that we all know and love.

We did shoot “The Banker” out of order, so fans may notice that in the next episode that airs his hair looks normal again, then it will be shorter for one more episode. Just an FYI for those who are really paying attention to detail!

Top marks to fans who noticed! Well done.

Thank you, Kim! :)
