  1. Promoting “The Promotion”! Let’s see how many shows use that line…

  2. Fresh Air with Jenna?! That’s an amazing combo…I’d love to hear Terri interview Rainn sometime (if she hasn’t already)

  3. I just listened to the interview on the NPR website. It’s very lengthy and interesting and you get to hear more about Jenna’s part in the “International Spice Girls.” Hilarious!

  4. wow listening to fresh air now…. Jenna was great… especially her description of her interaction with the camera crew… you must hear it!!!! so interesting

  5. WOW–the part where she talked about her and John Krasinski auditioning together (which I’d heard before) and how they are such good friends and so connected now after working together for these last few years was breathtaking.

    And I loved hearing how they interact with the directors/cameramen. The story of Season 3 Finale was amazing (I’ll confess to becoming slightly teary-eyed myself).

    Great, classy, amazing interview! I’m in love with Jenna all over again.

  6. I was driving to work while listening to this, and I could hardly bring myself to turn the car of. I loved her description of her first job in the Sex-Ed film.

  7. That was such an amazing interview. She told the greatest stories and really gave some insight on Pam.

  8. Wow! That Fresh Air interview with Jenna was awesome! It’s really interesting just hearing some of her stories (especially the one about her Pam audition!). But really, it’s worth listening to all 37 minutes!

  9. I am just so proud of our Jenna — what an amazing interview. I highly recommend listening to this one. I teared up about four times listening to her talk about the season 3 finale, Angela, her injury, and how the part of her that is Pam is in love with the part of John that is Jim. This made my day.

  10. Aw, poor Jenna! She had to look like a prostitute for an AUDITION? Hollywood douchebags (can you say that on here?)

  11. Wow, the npr interview with Jenna was great. I especially liked the part where she talks about Randall the cameraman and ken kwapis and how the cameras are like a separate character. I love the moments when the characters interact with the camera. Also the part about her back breaking was really intense – so glad I’ve never broken anything (knock on wood).

  12. I love all of Terry Gross’ interviews…she asks really good questions. This was so great to listen to!

  13. Terri Gross is always a great interviewer, and Jenna is awesome in interviews so this was great. i like the new things she mentioned that we haven’t heard in other interviews….especially the ken kwapis and randall einhorn part.

  14. Fantastic NPR interview! Really insightful, informative & funny.

    Even after having heard that Int’l Spice Girls story on a previous talk show appearance, I still laughed out loud at hearing her say it took her two weeks to catch on to it being a call girl ring – ha!

  15. That radio interview was incredible! I was really happy with the questions posed to Jenna and was thrilled with her responses. It made me emotional to hear about Ken Kwapis and how close she feels to him and the rest of the crew. Great moment in season 3 and I’m tickled that she teared up. Awesome link!

  16. Tanster – you can get Jenna’s NPR Interview on iTunes for free, so you can listen whenever/wherever you want! I didn’t know if people knew that or not. I found it quite exciting!

  17. The part where she talked about her back was so intense. i got all nervous even though i know she’s fine.
    Jenna is so cute, she’s such a nice person. Always great to hear her.

  18. Jenna is on WMMR’s Preston and Steve 3/4 of the way through this podcast

  19. Anyone know who some of the other Pams/Jims/Michaels/Dwights were? If I remember correctly, wasn’t Alec Baldwin a candidate for Michael? Or was it someone else? I think it’s interesting how there were 4 people for each…I can’t imagine any of the characters being played by someone else.

  20. I absolutely loved her interview. She is just so amazingly classy and elegant and wonderful. My favorite line is “You are my favorite Jim.” I wish that the writers would incorporate that line in the show somehow. It feels like it could easily mean, “I love you” on the show. I heart you, Jenna! You are my favorite Pam!

  21. I just love Jenna. She’s so sweet. I love how she always mentions Angela during her interviews.

  22. “Jenna, you may just be the most amazing woman in the history of the world. Do you know that?”
    “I do.”


  23. I heard her on NPR, and I loved when she talked about connecting with the cameraman/director. It was so sweet.

  24. I LOVE how “REAL” Jenna is. The whole cast is amazing and I LOVE the friendship they ALL have and the chemistry they share!! I hate that we have to wait until September 25th…can’t wait for the S4 DVD!!

  25. Jenna is great! Hope this movie does well, seems like it’s getting pretty good publicity.

  26. Yay for Dave Ryan! I love whenever they interview Jenna. It’s so refreshing to hear interviews in which the host IS a fan of the show.

    Thanks so much for the link, Tanster!

  27. Thanks for all the links tanster! She such a great interviewee! I can’t wait to see her on Letterman tomorrow.

    And yeah- Roy and Jim season 2 fist fight?!?! How can we get more details/ a copy of this?

  28. kevin and bean show: “i get excited about little things” i can totally relate. i freak out in excitment over the smallest and most insignificant things, like if someone puts a smiley face on a letter, or if cookies have mms in them, or if ice cream has sprinkles (aww sprinkles) jenna is the best

  29. Jenna IS the most amazing woman in the history of women. I have a complete girl-crush on her!

  30. Oh, i listened to the NPR interview! Great stuff!! oh, i LOVE jenna!! she’s the best!

  31. Wow… the npr interview was really good, but the KDWB people struck me as kind of annoying…

    I wonder what happened to the Roy/Jim fistfight footage…

  32. Thank you for re-posting the TRL video. The interview was really fun and I went to watch it again yesterday, and it was unavailable. =( I’m happy it’s up again!!!

    They are just shamelessly flirting aren’t they?!?! They are very cute! ;o)

  33. It’s cool they got to meet the Sandman. I’d like to see Adam and Jenna hook up in a movie, and I think the most likely movie to do it in is the one that Judd Apatow’s directing given Apatow helped her get into the biz. Though I’m not so sure that’ll be the movie since an interview with Rogen said they’ve pretty much got their casting out of the way and here Jenna said she just first met him, though that could just mean nothing.

  34. SO SO great! I cannot believe that Dave Ryan is still on the air – when I was listening to KDWB in….the early nineties, I was in junior high…there was his voice every day. So that interview was like TWO legendary people in ONE interview. wow!

    and yeah, there is nothing funnier than the idea of Jenna kind of not getting it for two weeks of working with lingerie-clad svetlana & Co…


  35. Wow, I listened to the NPR interview, totally worth 37 minutes of my day. I actually cried when she talked about Angela being with her at the hospital when she hurt her back.

    The part about the 4-Pam’s and 4-Jim’s auditioning together for 2 days was also sweet, I love that she and John both felt that there was some chemistry between them.

    Thanks for posting these interviews!

  36. I absolutely loved Jenna on Fresh Air. I definitely got a bit choked up when she described her connection with Ken Kwapis. That’s beautiful and that’s why I feel The Office achieves such a higher level of art than most other television programs could even dream of achieving. Go Jenna and Go NPR for appreciating the actress and the masterpiece that is our show.

  37. Can’t believe Jenna was in Australia and I missed it :(
    Damn you MTV. I’m glad there were big Office fans in studio that day :D
