Q. Do you already have the next season mapped out, however tentatively? For example, do you know if the new season will pick up right after the company picnic, or if it will jump ahead a few months? | pamalamadingdong
Jen C: We’re still mapping out what will happen next year — we started work a few days after season 5 ended — but I can tell you — (SPOILER ALERT) – that there will be a wedding for Pam and Jim. Where, when, and any kind of specifics beyond that, I don’t know yet.
Q. Is Erin coming back for Season 6? She is a really nice character to have on the show. | Veronica
Jen C: Erin is coming back and we like her a lot, too. She is a fun addition and we think it’s fun to see someone who truly enjoys being there.
Jen decided to turn the tables and ask me some questions.
Jen C: What was the most unexpected thing you saw/learned/felt during your week with us?
tanster: The most surprising part of the week was when you, Jen, made me cry. Okay, you didn’t actually make me cry, but you set me up so that I would cry. (To be explained soon …)
Jen C: What were you thinking about when you were making your horrified look during your close up? Were you imagining some actual horrifying thing or were you just responding to the events onstage?
tanster: As Holly Flax would say (with the Jon Lovitz hand flourish), ACTING! Seriously, I was just playing in the moment, and thinking, why the heck am I watching this ridiculous skit?! — it’s like, so not funny. :)
Jen C: Which actor is most unlike his/her character?
tanster: Most unlike: Brian. Most like: John. Just is: Creed.
Jen C: If you could have any wish in the world for Jen to be a Schrute, and you could have that wish for Jen to be a Schrute come true, would you want for Jen to be a Schrute? And is it Schrute or Shrute?
tanster: According to the official NBC bios, it’s Schrute, with a C. And of course I want to see you as a Schrute! Should we make it our mission? Should we start an online petition? Deliver the results to Greg Daniels with a truckload of beets? Let’s do it!
