B.J. Novak and Mindy Kaling getting a touch-up before filming the scene in the kitchen where Michael eats Meredith’s birthday cake in ‘The Chump.’
Ryan: It’s hard to live that way man. You gotta really not care what people think about you. I don’t know how you do it, Michael, I can’t be that cold.
As always, multiple takes are filmed of every scene. And every time Michael stuck his hand in Meredith’s cake and shoved a fistful of it in his mouth, a brand new cake was used. And they were real cakes! (More on that in a few pages.)
