‘The Office’ fan reports

Amy reports on ‘the girls from Paley Center’


You probably don’t remember us, but the 4 of us met you a year ago at the Paley Center in NYC. We didn’t know each other and only began talking because we all stayed behind to meet you. A year later (by accident but literally, to the day) we got together for dinner.

In the past year, we’ve gotten together for dinner, drinks, and lunches. We’ve helped each other with job searches, we’ve gone to shows (including ‘Chicago’ to see Melora), movies, and been invited to holidays at Carly’s (and if I celebrated passover I totally would’ve gone).

When Kerry was in line to get tix to see John when he was on Jay Leno who did she email about it? Us. And when I found out I was potentially going to meet Jenna and Rainn, who did I call? Carly (she was the only # I had at the time). And after I downed a few vodka tonics and embarrassingly introduced myself to Jenna and Rainn, who did I call? Carly again. She still has the voice message to prove it. The others got the story a couple days later at an emergency “one of us met them” dinner.

It goes beyond just The Office. Lindsay is the person I went to with help on finding good summer concerts. With Kerry I finally found a friend who will talk hockey with me. Carly was even kind enough to pick me up from the Long Island airport. And I … well I’m trying my best to get us into an ‘Away We Go’ screening from my Focus Features connections (but if that falls through then I have nothing to offer them and I’ll surely be kicked out of the group).

So we just want to thank you — I’m sure we aren’t the only people the website has brought together but we wanted you to know that we’re very appreciative of the site and the friendships it’s brought us.

Paley Girls


  1. I loved reading everyone’s fan reports (including mine – reminded me of my fun night meeting Kate!).

    Everyone’s stories were great and the photos are awesome! We are quite the lucky bunch that we get to meet such down-to-earth celebrities!

    I especially enjoyed the Paley Center girls story. You guys look like a lot of fun to hang out with! I’ve met people in unusual ways and become friends over time, so I know what that’s like.

    Thanks for sharing, everyone!

  2. I love reading about this stuff…although I’m so beyond jealous and would do anything to meet anyone from my favorite show, I still love reading and seeing other tallyheads meeting our idols. We need more east coast apperances by the office cast! (come to Philly PLEASE!!!)

  3. Thanks Jennie for posting. I just wanted to clarify that Ed Helms didn’t lose the tooth at 15, he actually had the implant at 15 to replace a “baby tooth”. My younger sister actually had the same problem. I also found a video a fan shot at another “Hangover” Q&A with Ed Helms talking about that tooth, breast implants, SNL, and Jerry Seinfeld.


  4. OMG!!! I am SOOOOO jealous!!!

    This just fuels my desire to meet the cast members even more!!

    Those were some really great fan reports, btw. I enjoyed reading those!!

  5. Hey took a trip over to the Marshfield Hills General Store today. Steve was not there, but he had sent over about 20 autographed hats to the store. I bought one my self, but there were only a few left so any people who live near or in Marshfield should head over soon! They are mixed in with the other hats, and signed on the inside so you may have to look. They have plenty of other Dunder Mifflin Ware too, so if you don’t over soon enough for a hat, you can always get a t-shirt! Good Luck finding one!

  6. Hi Tanster!

    I just wanted to let you know that I went to the advanced screening of Away We Go in Boston tonight and John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph were the special guests! They didn’t tell us right out that they were the special guests and I didn’t want to get my hopes up so I kept telling myself he couldn’t possibly be there. But then I saw one of his brothers come in and you know it’s his brother because they look a lot a like. Then I was thought, “OK maybe he will show.” And sure enough at the end of the movie I saw him and Maya come in through the back (that’s where I was seated) and they graciously answered our questions. It was so much fun!

    The movie is great by the way. I highly recommend it and not just because I’m a Krasinski fan. But both he and Maya did exceptional. The supporting cast was phenomenal. And I haven’t laughed that hard in a movie theater in a long time. All in all it was perfect and for the actors to show up was just the icing on the cake!

    PS: I do have photos but my camera is awful and I wasn’t close enough so my pictures are very very blurry. No up close shots, but if you’d like any then just let me know.

  7. john krasinski is hot. jaci is so lucky.

    and that’s all i have to say about that.
