Creative Loafing Atlanta talks to Ed Helms:
Do you have any stories of things going wrong, or funny things happening on the set?
The Christmas episode was a fun shoot because we did it at a real Benihana with a real Benihana hibachi grill … Jim throws a shrimp at Dwight, who was about 8 feet away, and it bounced off Dwight’s glasses and went right into the cup of water he was about to drink from. It was a one-in-a-million shot that pretty much shut down the set for five or 10 minutes of applause. But we didn’t use it because Harold Ramis, the director that week, thought it would look fake, even though it wasn’t.
