    Okay, so since I am obsessed (I mean... dilligant) and know of all sorts of office goodies, however, I don't want to start a new thread for all of them. So I figured maybe I would try this...

    Basically, anyone can post anything random news, links, etc that they hear about the Office people and/or the show. I would add a note: Any articles or features dealing with "Office" folks in the movies should probably go in the Movie Discussion thread instead of this one.

    Today's information:

    Page Six Magazine of this past New York Post

    Is that Jenna!? Yes, it really is!

    And from TWoP:

    :
    -Not a big fan of what they did with her on the covershot. To much touching up made her look older and not recognizable. If it didn't say Jenna Fischer in big bold letters on the cover, I would have not noticed it was her and thrown the magazine out along with the rest of the Sunday New York Post. The 3 photos in the inside though she looks like her stunning usual self.

    -The interviewer was clearly smitten with her, constantly lavished praise on Jenna throughout the article.

    -Jenna's car battery died but refused to cancel the interview. She jogged to the bar where they were meeting and "made it in 3 songs" on her ipod.

    -She auditioned for The Office because "she felt she owed it to her agent and manager." She was ready to quit acting and make a career out of taking care of animals.

    -Not comfortable with being a geek sex object and expressing her sexuality

    -Declined to say why she split with James. Sent him a text that said "For a divorcing couple we're kind of awesome. We should team up and fight some other divorcing couples."

    -Talking about her new indie movie (In an interview I read with Paul Fischer, she said that she isn't writing this and again re-iterated how much Lollilove turned her off to the creative process of film making and she won't ever write or direct again), "I'd like to have my own Little Miss Sunshine." The article is closed by saying in reference to that line, "Funny-that's a role Jenna already seems to be playing."

    And how sweet is it that she jogged to the interview. Go Jenna! And yes, her and James are like an idea divorced couple (at least from the public images they present)

    Too lazy to link, but one blogger mentioned this

    :
    So we were watching Relient K and all of a sudden they are asking the crowd who like the show "the office." Well of course here was my screaming moment. I yelled quite loudly due to my obsession with the show. Then they started talking about how they are friends with John Krasinski a.k.a Jim Halpert. All of a sudden John walks out on stage and helps them play the theme song to "the office." I freaked out! This was the moment of screaming, hurrying to snap a pic with my phone, and going absolutely nuts. Of course my sis and youth girls thought I was some sort of weirdo, but that was the glorious highlight of the concert for me.
    Which, considering I was at a Relient K concert, I was TOTALLY jealous that JK wasn't at the one I went to.

    le sigh.

    (ETA: This was likely the Evertt, WA concert.... why was my boy in WA, I don't know - yet)

    Good idea for a thread, although I would add a note: Any articles or features dealing with "Office" folks in the movies should probably go in the Movie Discussion thread instead of this one.

    Anyhoo, I agree about that cover photo. Jenna's beauty is in her girl-next-door charm. There's such a thing as too much hair product and make-up!

    I don't think these have been posted here yet...

    Interesting (short) blurb from the Winnipeg Sun:
    Jenna on the separation's effect on her pets

    Just Jared provides scans of a Men's Health article and pictures:
    See John Krasinski in old-school basketball attire

    Added it to the first post.

    And since this Relient K thing is all that is awesome (I have been denying myself JK goodness for the past few months), I present to you this video. And yes. As crappy and out of focus as that video was, I was insantly able to tell who JK was, as I stalk him in my spare time. (of course, comments for the video says it was just their merch guy. However, if so, it is their merch guy who can look very similar to JK and has same overall mannerisms. The video isn't clear enough to tell more than that).

    I'm bored, so I figured I would post pictures from the Walk Hard premiere:

    I really really really want Jenna to move away from the beige family. I just think she would look amazing in an emerald green or a deep red.

    More cast members were there (but no John, which makes me more disappointed than anyone can imagine):

    Very green and red, Kate. Specially the bottom.

    LOOK OUT JIM! Stanely's stealing your girl!

    Wow, that's some pretty big hair for Jenna...

    ...and I agree about the beige. She looks great in anything, but I'd love to see her in dark green, red, or even a traditional "little black dress."

    Jenna is always gorgeous but I'm not loving that hair or dress...she always looks better when she isn't as "done-up." I actually think Kate Flannery looks really nice even if her color choice isa little too christmasy
