Brian Baumgartner in ‘Into Temptation’

One of the best parts of running OfficeTally is reporting on The Office cast’s various movie projects. It’s been a busy summer — John Krasinski in Away We Go, Ed Helms and The Hangover, and B.J. Novak in Inglourious Basterds.

The film had its world premiere in Minneapolis on Thursday, plays in limited release around the country after that, and then comes out on DVD in October.
