Jenleigh: Brian–when you shot that deleted scene with Jan and the breastfeeding, how awkward was that?? or was it not a big deal?
Brian Baumgartner: what do you mean …?
Brian Baumgartner: it was *awesome*
Brian Baumgartner: ok ok
Brian Baumgartner: ummm … it was not awkward
Brian Baumgartner: we have been working together a lot, we have seen each others proverbial undies …
Brian Baumgartner: so it was not a big deal at all
marskye: especially Rainn’s
Brian Baumgartner: for me, at least … but u can ask Melora i guess
Jenleigh: that’s pretty great

kreidy: Speaking of Christmas Party and the video iPod, are the cast and crew glad to be back on iTunes?
Brian Baumgartner: My dad is glad we are back on iTunes …
bb2904: it’s in true office spirit
Jenleigh: I’m sure iTunes is glad you’re back on, that’s for sure!
Kenna: Your dad is not alone in that sentiment!
Brian Baumgartner: i bought him a video iPod so he could watch when he wanted, and he was aggravated when we were off … wanted me to go talk to Jeff Zucker about it
kreidy: I missed it, that’s for sure
Brian Baumgartner: and as u can see … Problem solved
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
