Office gossip

Kristin from E! Online searches for Season 3 scoop:

I had the pleasure of running into David Denman, who plays Roy, and he was much cooler than his TV counterpart. It happened to be the same week they were shooting the Office finale, and I said to him “Maybe Jim will give Roy a run for his money next season?” and he said … click here for more.

TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello reports on Monday’s NBC presentation of their fall lineup (the “upfronts”):

The casts of The Office and My Name is Earl appeared onstage and explained what it meant to them to be a part of NBC’s storied Thursday-night lineup. I don’t recall any of their specific lines, but trust me when I say their shtick was the highlight of the nearly-three hour presentation. On a lesser note, we caught a preview of the first Office webisode, slated to debut this summer exclusively on, and … click here for more.

Thanks to OfficeTally reader Lal for the Kristin tidbit!


  1. YESSSS… love battle between roy and jim… bwhaha. I’m sure all the mushy Jam fans will hate it, but I think it’s hilarious.

    And too bad about the webisodes… ah, well. I’ll give them a try.

  2. I agree with that, tanster. I’ve made it my personal mission to make all of my friends and acquaintences watch The Office over the summer, which will give the show a bigger fan base and me someone to talk about it with obsessively. I started last night by making one of my girlfriends watch all of Season 1, plus a select few Season 2 episodes I have downloaded from iTunes.

    She went in feeling uncomfortable with Michael’s shinanigans and came out a big fan. I know I can convert more people if I can just tie them down and make them watch. :-)

  3. Yes, I was bummed about the reaction to the webisode as well … Michael Ausiello himself is not a fan of The Office either!

    It’s frustating to know that there are so many people out there who don’t “get” The Office. I know, because I used to be one of them!

    It’s almost like the unimpressed need to be “shown around” a few choice episodes by an Office fanatic first …

  4. I have a friend who watched Casino Night as her first episode. Im going to give her all the other episodes so she can catch up. Im actually really excited to hear how someone who knows about Kiss II percieves the buildup.

  5. I’m not expecting much from the webisodes myself. Since they’re stand-alone, according to NBC, I think they’ll try to do too much with each individual one. The 10 that will air over the summer may add up to the length of one regular episode, but they’ll try to add too much to each one. The awkward silences and interactions may not be as plentiful as in the regular episodes, perhaps with more reliance on standard verbal communication.

  6. I want the webisodes to tie me over and get me excited. I don’t think they need to be funny enough for me to get really excited. And, tanster, are you going to do a rating thing for the webisodes and give them their own list? That’d be fun.

  7. “And, tanster, are you going to do a rating thing for the webisodes and give them their own list? That’d be fun.”

    Hi J, unfortunately, I can only do one ‘best-rated’ ranking system per blog.

    But what I can do is a new poll whenever a new webisode is released, so we can compare webisodes that way. :)
