Photos of the day: set visit 2010

I visited The Office set in March while they filmed the last two episodes of Season 6 (what they call “cross-boarding”).

A more detailed report will come later of course, but here are a few non-spoilerish photos. Enjoy! :)

Wednesday, March 24

B.J. Novak Mindy Kaling

B.J. Novak and Mindy Kaling get their makeup touched up by LaVerne right before shooting the Anthropologie scene in The Office episode The Chump.

Right before I took the photo, I said to them, “I’m taking an action shot of you guys, don’t look at the camera!” Mindy started laughing and B.J. looked straight at the camera. :)

More photos starting on the next page.


  1. oh man, i laughed so hard at that picture of rainn and the cat.

    and a big “AAAAAAAWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!” at the photo of jenna, angela, and isabel!

  2. you are the LUCKIEST FAN/PERSON on this earth…
    being able to see and talk to them, i am not the type to get jealous- but, i am.

    Jenna and Angela are cute, but Isabel PWNs them :D

  3. Well, I don’t know… The cat looks kind of frozen to me! Maybe retrieved from Angela’s freezer?

  4. Aww, this picture makes my day. So adorable!! Can’t wait to see and hear more about your awesome adventures =)

  5. Thanks for the teaser, Tanster! Can’t wait to read your report when you have time.

  6. So, so cute! Looks like they are having a lot of fun on set! And that prop cat is amazing. I would carry it around with me all the time, like a stuffed animal!

  7. Aww. The pictures of Cecelia are so cute. And I love the pictures of Jim and Pam on each other’s desks. I’ve seen them a million times before but they’re so cute and realistic. I’m very excited to see your other photos.

  8. Were you allowed to show us that Pam is back at work, at her desk?
    Hope there is no grand inquisition.

  9. Tanster did you ask them if there was any relation to Angela’s baby Isabelle and Dwight’s Isabelle?

  10. That baby picture looks uncannily like a combo of both Jim and Pam. I wonder how hard they searched for that baby or if they just picked a random baby photo that happened to end up looking like them. Or maybe it’s really Jenna’s niece? Hmmmmmmmm…..

  11. Best way to start a Saturday morning….. looking through set pictures. Although my reactions went from “awwww sooo cute” to “hahahahahaha what the….” in a matter of seconds. and of course the ever present level of jealousy I have whenever I look at your behind the scene photos Tanster…. ;)

    So if they were all right around the corner from your computer station does that mean they were reading comments??

    and @4 Shane….. it’s cause she’s a demi-god in the world of the Office. :P

    [from tanster: joanna, they probably were not reading comments that night, but definitely the next morning! they were also talking about the tag, too. :) ]

  12. My 2 favorite fansite people together: Tanster and Mike…that is v v cool :)
    So glad that you are still connected with the show and that they love you too. It speaks volumes about both your integrity and theirs.

    [from tanster: awwww, thank you! i am super grateful to everybody at the show for letting me come to visit.]

  13. That’s cool that you met Mike Mitchell. I’m going to see Conan in May and I’m so excited!!! I feel like Mike had a lot to do with rousing up enthusiasm that allowed that to happen.

  14. How fun, Tanster! I jumped right on that I’m with Coco campaign as soon as I saw it. You get to meet all the fun people. :)

  15. Underneath the photo of Rainn and the cat I see the article from from when they visited for “Niagara”…

    I just love that because that’s my hometown paper!

    Me and my eagle eye :)

  16. Tanster you are SO lucky! :) I love that even though you are visiting The Office set you still have time to update us Tallyheads (if I were on The Office set, I don’t think I would even have time for my mom haha) Hope you’re having a blast!!

    [from tanster: alas, i flew home today. it was an awesome three days, but really exhausting. i seriously do not know how the crew does it. i could sleep for the next 12 hours. ;) ]

  17. Was Mike doing the artwork for Soul Pancake before the I’m With Coco campaign or was he asked to do it after he did the I’m With Coco campaign?

  18. Thanks so much for sharing Tanster! The photo of Jenna, Angela and Isabel is adorable. I love that Jenna and Angela are such good friends in real life :)

  19. Hi Jennie! My wife and I just made a quick trip down to the set of The Office today. Of course, it was nothing like the experience you had, but we did have some fun. After talking to the awesome security guard outside the set, we got to wait outside and saw Angela Kinsey come by. It was so cool! We got to say hi, and so did she. We asked for a quick photo and just as she started to come over, some guy came over and said that he couldn’t let her take a photo with us. It was a huge bummer, but it was still cool to talk with her for a minute. I sure wish I could have an experience like yours, but my wife and I still had a great time!

    [from tanster: angela is a sweetheart. glad you got to talk to her!]

  20. kim is watching my new favorite talking head of phyllis’… “I love going to bars with Bob. I tend to wear something low-cut, get men to flirt with me, and Bob beats them up. ….What?”

    my second favorite is “I wonder what people like most about me? Probably my jugs.”

  21. Hey Tanster! Thanks for the report/pictures!! I can’t wait to see more! Can you tell us who wrote and/or directed the episodes you saw? I’m always interested in that stuff! :)

  22. MistyMon isn’t a member of Waterloo anymore. The hunt is on!!!

    [from tanster: yes, that is today’s mission — go find mistymon and bring her here! :) ]

    Waterloo, IA! I go to school at UNI/the school that beat Kansas.
    I would prefer it to be at anyone’s desk but Toby’s though.

  24. @13 SJ – I totally agree with you, there is SO much Lieberstein in that little girl!! My first thought was, “Wow, she looks a lot like Toby!” LOL Adorable!

  25. #36 perhaps Misty is Shakymons cousin?

    I have no idea, I just noticed that the name sounds similar :)

  26. One of DMI’s most recent tasks included a list of all active employees and MistyMon isn’t on there anymore. Bummer, I hope they find out; I’d freak out if it were me! :)


  27. not kidding– that ‘i’m with coco’ pic is the wallpaper on my computer:)

  28. Random question, but what do you do at your little workspace on your computer? You look sooo important I <3 it :) Thanks for the pics

    [from tanster: it was Thursday night, so I was moderating OfficeTally comments. :) ]

  29. I Love that the character “Creed” is exactly like the REAL creed.. haha
