Forget karaoke, this is my new favourite party game!
John Krasinski stopped by Studio 6B Tuesday night for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where he challenged host Jimmy Fallon to a lip-sync off. The two of them took the stage for three heart-wrenching performances each. Jimmy “belted” out “Over the Rainbow” from an 80′s Star Search performance, “Don’t Cry Out Loud” by Melissa Manchester and “They Want EFX” by Das EFX. John, on the other hand, performed “Teenage Dream” by Katy Perry and “Peter Piper” by Run DMC. Things got pretty romantic when John started his lip-synced version of Boyz II Men’s “I’ll Make Love To You.” If you didn’t love John Krasinski already, this might be the moment you start loving him.
They are both so awesome and adorable. In my book, they’re both winners.
From Time Magazine to cat food commercials, Grumpy Cat is everywhere now a days. And with fame, comes dozens of imitators. Just look at Anderson Cooper’s attempt:
It’s one thing to frown, but the ability to replicate a “U” shape frown a la Grumpy Cat is a special talent. Here are five people who actually do look like Grumpy Cat:
1. Nick Miller (Jake Johnson) from New Girl
2. Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) from The Office
3. Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss) from Glee Read more…
If your dog is anything like mine, the only time the TV is interesting is if there is another animal making noise on the screen or there is something interesting behind it that needs to be uncovered.
This pup is a little different. Her favourite show is the Office, and like most humans I know, she sings along to the theme song of the show she loves so much. Adorable, talented, and has good taste in TV. My kind of animal!
Looks like Rainn Wilson is the latest television star to speak out against his own series for being complete filth. I was originally shocked to see the tirade against Two and a Half Men by actor Angus T. Jones, who warned you’re pretty much filling your head with scum.
Riding off that wave of hilarity is this parody by The Office’s very own Wilson (Dwight) and Darryl Philbin.”The Office is nothing,” he said. “If you watch The Office, please don’t watch The Office. I’m on The Office, it’s filth. That filth will rot your brain.”
Then he proceeded to repeat the exact time and date when The Office is on NBC (Thursdays at 9 pm) just for good measure.

I initially had a really hard time watching this video of a redneck showing off yo-yo tricks on a local news channel and failing miserably. Then I started reading the comments and it turns out this dude isn’t an Internet fail, he’s an Internet troll! His name is Mark Proksch and he made appearances on The Office as a warehouse worker named Nate. So now you can laugh and not feel bad about it. Win!!
Today in the world of Twitter, Jessica Simpson had trouble identifying whether that queasy feeling in her stomach was her baby or just mere gas. The more likely explanation is that the munchkin was dancing. Nothing gets you moving like her late 90s hit “I Think I’m in Love.” Anyone? Just me?!
More confusion, but this time for The Office’s BJ Novak. We see the slow collapse of his joy when he realizes that it’s actually a leap year and that in fact, tomorrow is still February, or as it’s better known the most depressing month of the year.
Wiz Khalifa wished his mom a happy birthday yesterday and I think it’s safe to say it was a good one. Don’t worry, mama Khalifa has the same tolerance as her son, so she’s pretty much indestructible.
Directed by Jay and Mark Duplass who have received a lot of hype from their last film Cyrus with John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill and Marissa Tomei – but this could likely seal their mainstream success. It continues Duplass’ theme of family dysfunction with Segel as a naive mopey slacker named Jeff living in his mother’s basement searching for the meaning of life. He reconnects with his brother Pat (Helms) who soon discovers that his wife is having an affair – meanwhile, their mother (Susan Sarandon) is depressed. Holy dramedy, Batman!
It looks to be in the same vain as Helms’ Cedar Rapids or Segel’s Forgetting Sarah Marshall rather than their other efforts – it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to great reviews and is due in theatres nationwide on March 16th.
E! Online reports there is no confirmation on how many episodes Josh will appear in the show. However, based on his appearance in Glee, he should be hilarious playing Helms’ brother. We hope to see a sing off.
So it’s official that James Spader will be joining The Office. He will be playing Robert California, who is initially hired to replace Michael Scott, but quickly becomes the top boss, reports LA Times.
“James will reprise his role as Robert California, this uber-salesman that has a power to convince and manipulate, like a high-class weirdo Jedi warrior,” said series regular Paul Lieberstein, one of the series’ executive producers.
“He’ll have been hired over the summer as the new manager, but within hours, got himself promoted. Within days, he took over the company. James has an energy that is completely his own, and ‘The Office’ has no tools for dealing with this guy,” Lieberstein added. “We’re thrilled he’s joining our cast.”
We thought his “initial interview” on The Office was cute, but we are skeptical he can carry this role.
Jim Carrey is set to make a guest-appearance on the season 7 finale of “The Office” alongside the star-studded fiesta that includes Ricky Gervais, Will Ferrell, Will Arnett, James Spader, Ray Romano and Catherine Tate.
We all know that this is the last season for Steve Carrell’s Michael Scott and the above-mentioned actors are all potential replacements to fill his management position at the beloved Dunder Mifflin. But, sorry to shatter the fantasy, but there is very little likeliness that any of these big names will reprise their roles after the finale.
In recent interviews, Gervais, who has co-created the series and its original British version, has said that Arnett should be made a regular character on the show. Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight Schrute, told Entertainment Weekly that Ferrell is “not expected to replace Carell on the show permanently”.
Should be an interesting toss-up and will definitely make for good television to see Ron Burgundy duke it out with Ace Ventura and Gob Bluth. Tune in next Thursday on NBC.
Who do you think would make the best boss?
Although there still isn’t any word on who’s going to replace Michael Scott at Dunder Mifflin, we do know the names of the potential candidates.
With the loss of Steve Carrell, the series will compensate with a star-studded ending to the show’s seventh season.
Ricky Gervais and Will Arnett were announced as guest stars in March, while earlier this month, Ray Romano, James Spader and Catherine Tate were revealed to be joining the show as well. Will Ferrell, will also be joining the cast for the final four episodes as D’Angelo Vickers, the temporary boss.
Show star and writer Mindy Kaling has also let fans in on some juicy details about the show’s season finale via Twitter on Tuesday, revealing the names of the guest stars’ characters.
“William Arnett plays ‘Fred Henry’, Raymond Romano plays ‘Merv Bronte’, and James Spader plays ‘Robert California’. These are real, guys,” she tweeted.
Kaling then added, “Catherine ‘The Great’ Tate is Nellie Bertrum. (Again, real.)”
If you think the names are silly, Kaling says the process of creating them was just as fun.
“Naming new characters is one of the most fun times in a writers room, as @KenTremendous can attest. Takes a tiny, silly part of the brain!” Kaling wrote, referring to Michael Schur, a former writer for the series and co-creator of “Parks and Recreation.”
While no one will ever replace Carrell, the announcement of these guest stars sure make up for the loss of Michael Scott,.
I really hope the hype is worth it because with such comedic talents lined up to guest star, I will be looking forward to having a good laugh from upcoming episodes!
Perez Hilton reports that the Office’s most recent buzzed-about guest star, Will Ferrell, could be written into the show as a permanent character to replace Steve Carell. Ferrell confirmed the story with a reporter at last weekend’s Comedy awards, but we all know Will is the master of deadpan and could be totally joking about the whole thing!
Ferrell said: “Yes, I’m taking over. My character’s name is Deangelo Vickers, he loves the American Southwest, and he’s just kind of in his own way going to step into Michael Scott’s shoes and try to fill them. I’m friends with Steve and a fan of the show, and I just selfishly wanted to do one episode with him, and they pitched multiple ones, and I said, ‘That’d be great.’”
It’s impossible to tell whether Ferrell was being serious or not without some sort of footage, none of which has emerged just yet.
What do you think? Would you be stoked to see Will Ferrell become the new face of The Office?
Earlier this year, it was announced that Will Ferrell (of Will Ferrell) landed a guest spot on The Office.
Ferrell is rumoured to play another branch manager from the home office that is just as incompetent and dumb witted as Steve Carell’s character, Michael Scott.
He agreed to the appearance to mark the loss of Carell’s farewell. The two have appeared together and harmonized over ‘Afternoon Delight’ in the comedy classic, Anchoman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. He will appear in four episodes, and Rainn Wilson, who plays Dwight Schrute in the series, could not be happier.
“We’ve been doing a ton with Will Ferrell, and it is so cool,” he said. “I just keep thinking, ‘I’m acting with Will Ferrell! This is so awesome!’ And he’s the nicest guy: just a sweetheart and so much fun.”
Could Ferrell potentially replace Carell??
“He is the new manager that Michael Scott has brought in to replace him, but we kind of swiftly realise that that’s a terrible idea. Terrible,” Wilson reported to MTV News.
This could be very interesting.
With the most beloved character, Michael Scott, and actor on ‘The Office,” Steve Carell, leaving NBC had to do something so that Carell will go out with a bang. Therefore, NBC hired on Will Ferrell to reunite with his Anchorman co-star for the end of the season.
According to InsideTV.EW.Com, Ferrell will have a four episode run and will be playing a branch manager who arrives from the home office and is entirely incompetent just like Michael Scott. Three episodes will feature both Carell and Farrell as Carell is leaving four episodes before the season’s finale.
We’ve seen the hilarity that ensues when Ferrell and Carell play alongside each other. “The Office” should prove to be no different as the actors have a natural comedic chemistry. Ferrell will also help to boost the shows ratings and perhaps draw an even bigger audience due to his popularity.
Michael Scott apparently will not last the entire season, and will be killed off before the finale in May. Why? The last weeks of the season will see the crew at Dunder-Mifflin “scrambling to replace him,” according to the Huffington Post.
Michael Scott’s last scenes will probably air in April. However Steve Carell will be keeping busy with an onslaught of movie rolls and he will be both a nominee and a presenter at this year’s Golden Globes.
So incompetent bosses and workplaces aren’t unique to the Western world it turns out. The New York Post reports that Gervais is taking “The Office” to China with a Chinese version of the popular program.
“I have some amazing news,” Gervais wrote on his blog. “We are about to start work on developing a Chinese ‘The Office.’ How cool is that?”
Gervais also confirmed that he will not be taking over for Steve Carell on NBC’s “The Office” after the next season.
“I’m not taking over from Steve Carell and will just continue to make millions for doing f*** all,” he wrote, “because I created the show and all the characters, and own the format and it’s being syndicated now and I get paid every time any episode of any version is played anywhere in the world.”
Steve Carell will be leaving his post as Michael Scott on NBC’s hit show “The Office” after the upcoming season. When asked last night by Craig Ferguson why he was leaving, Carell explained he didn’t know the answer. He later rebuffed saying it was to spend more time with his family.
“Honestly, to spend more time with my family,” said the actor. Ferguson replied, “That’s usually what politicians say when they’re caught doing something with their pee-pees … He says, ‘Well, I’m retiring, but not because of what you think — just to spend a little more time with my family.’
Definitely the show will be different without the legendary Michael Scott. Anybody have any views on how writers will get rid of the Michael Scott character?
America’s favorite receptionist Jenna Fischer from “The Office” has married over the weekend, reports UsMagazine.com.
Fischer married TV writer Lee Kirk, who she has been engaged to since the Summer of 2008. In attendance was “The Office” co-star Rainn Wilson, who took to Twitter right after the ceremony.
“Went to the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever experienced,” Wilson tweeted. “Total Love, Jenna Fischer & Lee Kirk!
This is the second marriage for Fischer, who wed director James Gunn in 2000. They divorced in 2007.
E! News reports Carell has confirmed he will be leaving the NBC sitcom after Season 7. He made these comments at the red carpet premiere for “Despicable Me.”
“I just think it’s time,” Carell said on the red carpet. “I want to fulfill my contract. When I first signed on I had a contract for seven seasons, and this coming year is my seventh. I just thought it was time for my character to go.”
Now can the show continue without Michael Scott? Isn’t it like Seinfeld without Jerry Seinfeld?
“It doesn’t certainly mean the end of the show. I think it’s just a dynamic change to the show, which could be a good thing, actually. Add some new life and some new energy…I see it as a positive in general for the show,” Carell said.
So who will replace Michael Scott as the Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin Infinity? Should they hire (or cast) someone new? Or promote within?
Sitcom television isn’t having much luck – and it looks like Steve Carell is following in the footsteps of Charlie Sheen. Yes, it’s true – there may be no Michael Scott in the popular sitcom The Office after next season.
During an interview with BBC, Carell dropped the horrible bomb that he may not be re-signing his contract next year.
When the interviewer asked, “How long will you stay with The Office for? How many more [seasons]? How long does your contract run?” Carell responded, “Contract through next season.”
When he was asked “And will you stay after that?” the 47-year-old actor responded, “I don’t think so. I think that will probably be my last year.”
Well, at least he said, “think,” so there may still be hope. Perhaps it was part of a negotiation tactic, and Michael Scott will alive and well in the Scranton branch. NBC has yet to comment on the interview.
It is almost impossible to imagine The Office without the immature, inappropriate and absolutely hilarious Michael Scott.
