bb2904: haha

Kenna: lol

MNFan: Brian ~ can you walk us through that INCREDIBLE talking head in “Chair Model” – how long did it take to get it “right”? How difficult was it to portray that vulnerable, emotional state (not something we often see from Kevin)?
Brian Baumgartner: wow … thanks Mn fan
Brian Baumgartner: i loved that episode for kevin
tanster: that was truly an amazin scene
Brian Baumgartner: it is a special thing about the show, that characters who are not supposed to feel real pain or joy, are allowed that
sar20: yes, i love that
Jenleigh: it makes the show so much more real!
Brian Baumgartner: and i took it as a great opportunity to give depth to a mentally challenged … errrr … i mean, simple guy like Kev
tanster: kev’s got a very expressive face


  1. I cannot believe I missed this! I saw the announcement and have been checking back every so often. I was at my computer all afternoon too!
    Well, thanks for the transcript, Tanster!

  2. What a sweetheart he is! I can’t believe I missed that… Thanks for the transcript, Tanster. Very fun;)

  3. Good good stuff. One of those guys I’d love to have a beer with.

    And that ticket stub pic is kinda awesome.

  4. Man, I saw that he was there but I don’t know how to create an account for the chat room. Every time I try to get on the chat I try to click, “create an account” or something along that lines but it never works. It won’t let me click it. I wanted to get in there so bad. Oh well.

  5. Cannot believe I missed Mr. Awesome himself!

    Thanks for the transcript – I love how low key Brian is and how funny.

  6. Dangnabit, I can’t believe I missed that and I would’ve been on the dang internet at the time if my internet wasn’t messed up. Dangnabit, oh well, maybe some other time.


  7. It was so cool to talk to Brian. He’s such a funny guy. The fact that he answered a number of my questions is something to be proud of. That was such a fun night in the OTCR. Thanks, Tanster and Brian!
