Reading Jenna Fischer

In the September issue of Esquire magazine, Jenna Fischer wrote an article called Ten Things You Don’t Know About Women.

Here is a video, created by Preston Conner and shot entirely on a camera phone, of various Office staff members (including Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, B.J. Novak, Kate Flannery, Charles Esten, Ed Helms, John Sparano, and Dan Beals) reciting from the article.

Warning: Definitely NSFW! It’s pretty raunchy stuff …

Tipsters: LJ Office community, Reid.

More additions to Office cast

Along with Ed Helms, Charles “Chip” Esten (“Whose Line Is It Anyway?”) and Rashida Jones (“Boston Public”) are joining the cast of The Office.

Helms and Jones will play employees at the Scranton, Pa., regional office of the Dunder Mifflin paper supply company where the series is set.

Esten will play Josh Porter, the regional manager at another branch of Dunder Mifflin. He originated the character in the “Valentine’s Day” episode this past season.
