Jenna on ‘Jay Leno’

Jenna Fischer appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno tonight.

She talked about her dad’s quest for a Cobalt boat, switching nightstands with her husband, and the terrors of walking the red carpet.

Funniest line: “Jay’s not Oprah — he’s not about making people’s dreams come true!” Hilarious.

  1. I think Steve Carrell (as Michael Scott) needs to run out during Jeremy Piven’s segment, yell “hug it out b*tch,” and then run back off stage.

    Maybe we’ll get some spoilerish info. from Jenna…I’ll set my TIVO just for that – though yummy John Legend doesn’t hurt :-)

  2. Yeah, good line-up. And I still remember Jenna’s last Leno appearance, so cute and funny. This oughta be a good episode.

  3. My mom and I went to the taping. Jenna was awesome – totally stole the show!

  4. Just watched it. Some stuff we’ve sort of heard before, James not noticing things, how she’s not difficult to please. Still funny, though. And I loved the red carpet thing, and her faces when she’d yell “JENNA!” or “JEREMY!” Piven looked smitten!

    Oh, and…Jay, don’t called her ‘bitch’. Yikes! (Still, I like her chemistry with Leno.)

  5. Jenna was just so cute tonight! I love all of the little stories she tells us about her family, and her frequent plugs of Lake The Ozarks. Her tales of the nightstand switcheroo were just t-o-o much, seriously. She’s just so darn normal and down to earth, despite everything. This is why we love her so much.

  6. I thought it was a great interview. Loved the part where Jenna said her dad actually was offered the boat! As Tracie mentioned in #11, I really love that during the interview, Jenna comes across as so down-to-earth and thoughtful….just a hometown girl at heart, what with trying to get the best seats at the theater for her parents as a surprise etc

  7. Good stuff! I’m glad that they gave her a good amount of time. I’m always rooting for our Office stars when they do interviews. YEAH!

    I love John Legend! So cool that he was there too. Love that song too!

    “Let’s go to the park….”

  8. Jenna looks ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS as a redhead. I mean, she’s always gorgeous, but red hair really suits her ivory skin. I am totally inspired to dye my hair that color.

    PS: James Gunn – you better realize what you got!

  9. Maybe I just like to watch Jenna but that interview was great even better than the last one. They also gave her lots of time.

  10. She’s just a great interview, isn’t she? So naturally funny and enthusiastic.

    Oh, and James knows what he’s got, I’m sure. They’re pretty much a perfect couple.

  11. I think it is really cute the way Jenna waves to the audience when she comes out from backstage on talkshows. I first noticed it on a Jenna Fischer interview highlights clip on YouTube. She did it again last night on the Tonight Show. It just looks very genuine and charming. And I don’t think I have seen anyone else wave the same way.

  12. Jenna looked stunning on Leno last night. And her story about her dad and the boat was really funny, especially her line that Leno’s not Oprah. It’s too bad that she had to be on the same show as Jeremy Piven, who seems like a real tool.

  13. She is so adorable. I like the dark blonde hair better, but she really can pull off anything. Her expression was so funny when she imitated the red carpet screaming.

    Ugh, Jay’s bitch comment… Jenna’s so classy and that was completely unnecessary. She’s the only guest I’d watch the Tonight Show for.

  14. Adorable interview!

    I’ll admit, I had been super curious to see Jenna’s red hair, but then I forgot, and didn’t notice until she said something in the interview. It looks great. Very natural.

    Loved her dress and her patent leather shoes.

    Her stories were very cute. I think my favorite was about the photographers screaming at her. That has to be odd, it is like they are on display at some bizarre celebrity zoo.

  15. I *loved* it! She’s so adorable! I think after her red carpet bit, Jeremy Piven did look mighty smitten with her lol. When the clip ended of Blades of Glory, he was still looking at her and laughing, then started clapping for the clip. Very cute.

  16. Haha, the bit about the night stands was very much like that list she wrote awhile back on things that men need to know about women. She really stands by that! And her imitation of the screamers at the red carpet was hilarious!

  17. She looked cute with the red hair, but I prefer her normal color. Her stories were good, and yeah I’ll have to agree the faces she made when she was fake yelling were adorable. Jay’s “Bitch!” was probably innappropriate, but Jenna has kind of a dark raunchy sense of humor (watch Lollilove, which she wrote) so I seriously doubt she was offended by it. Surprised maybe, but not offended.

  18. She came off as very comfortable, funny, and adorable! Great stories. Great rapport with both Jay and Jeremy Piven. And she really did look like a big time movie star in that dress! She’s the type of star that you can see yourself being friends with, you know?

    I love her :)

  19. Jenna wouldn’t have cared that Jay called her a bitch (especially the way he did it, which wasn’t offensive in it’s context). According to James, she’s got the mouth of a sailor. Plus, her humor is pretty raunchy, so I’m sure she found it funny. :)

  20. Since no one else has mentioned it…the interview has been posted on YouTube. Search for FJ on TS w/JL.

  21. Jenna’s so fun to watch on interviews!

    Too bad Leno’s such a bum. Did he think screaming “you bitch!” at Jenna was funny? I guess when you have staff writing all your jokes its tough to come up with one of your own…

    Oh, I must go see Blades of Glory now, btw. Jenna in lingerie is not to be missed!

  22. Jenna was totally adorable on Jay! I love all of her stories and she really does seem like such an approachable and cool person! i loved the Cobalt boat story, so funny! the nightstand bit was so funny!

  23. Wow….Jenna is so much cuter and more charming than Pam. Verry funny.
    P.S. – Dear Jenna: I would have noticed the hair and night stands.

  24. I think Pam is cute and charming too! (Ref. Seasons 1 and 2). It’s just that Pam has been kicked in the grief bone so many times this season that it’s hard for her to keep her spirits up…my heart broke for her too many times to count (talk about vacarious depression). I propose we set up the Committee to Bring Back the Beesly Smile.
