Vote: I’ve included this on a previous Weekend Tally, but I got a short note from Rainn Wilson this week, asking Tallyheads to vote for the film at the Now Film Festival — it’s called ‘Missing Pieces,’ and Rainn says “It’s a dark, funny, sad little piece.” Vote here (scroll down to ‘Missing Pieces’ at the very bottom of the selections).
Upcoming TV appearances: B.J. Novak appears on ‘Late Night with Conan O’Brien this Wednesday; Jenna Fischer appears on ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ this Thursday; Steve Carell on ‘Weekend Today’ this Saturday.
The Office’s co-executive producer Mike Schur (aka Dwight’s cousin ‘Mose’) appeared on HBO’s ‘Costas Now’ this week to discuss Internet sports coverage and his blog Fire Joe Morgan. (WARNING: FJM is a little profane. But as Mike says, “FJM is extremely pro-swearing. We just feel you should be funny while doing it.”)
Mike appears starting at the 2:05 mark. (Sadly, this video has now been removed.)

Article: Nesting With a Vengeance (and a Deadline). “Angela Kinsey, who plays Angela Martin on the television comedy “The Office,” is seven months pregnant and “trying to prioritize” all the improvements she is making on her 1950s single-story home in Los Angeles.”
