The American version of The Office employed a simple, piano-driven theme song that is inextricably tied to the show. It was made for the show by former Spirit singer Jay Ferguson, but a few existing tracks were also considered.
In his new memoir The Bassoon King, Rainn Wilson, the actor behind the inimitable Dwight Schrute, has a section titled “Random Office Memories,” in which he lists a bevy of pop classics that might have served as the show’s theme.
James Spader has played quite a spectrum of characters over his career. Thanks to his distinctive voice and deadpan humor, some of them fit together surprisingly well. One fan recently tested this theory by inserting lines spoken by Robert California, Spader’s character on The Office, into Ultron’s mouth. Somehow, it makes Ultron even scarier.
It’s a Dunder Mifflin #tbt: Jenna Fischer, who played Pam on The Office, posted a photo to Instagram on Thursday of herself, Angela Kinsey, Kate Flannery, and Ellie Kemper alongside a photo of the four of them five years ago.
“Five years ago, these crazy ladies helped me celebrate my bachelorette,” Fischer captioned the image. “Last night, we decided it was time to recreate the photo.”
Andy Buckley (Odd Mom Out) is going to play someone else who keeps our favorite leading man in check. Michael Scott’s old boss in The Office has been cast to play Jimmy’s agent in FX’s acclaimed, rauncy comedy You’re the Worst, EW confirmed. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
Midway through The Office’s run, the “Scranton Welcomes You” sign made iconic by the show’s opening credits was moved to the local mall because too many people kept stopping traffic to take their pictures with it.
When The Office debuted ten years ago, it was not a very good sitcom.
If you don’t know David Brent by now, you will never, never, never know him… ooooooooooooooo.
David Brent, Ricky Gervais’ signature creation from the original Office TV series, was a middle-manager at a depressing paper company who never gave up his dream to be a rock-star. Never!
For nine years, Angela Kinsey played television’s favorite high-strung, cat-loving accountant, Angela Martin, on The Office. And though she, Kevin (Brian Baumgartner), and Oscar (Oscar Nunez) may have butted heads on the show, in real life, she and the men of Dunder Mifflin’s accounting department share a real bond.
Oscar Nunez is coming back to TV.
This time, The Office alum will star alongside Happy Endings’ Eliza Coupe in the upcoming USA Network comedy Benched, about a corporate attorney whose breakdown leaves her working as a public defender. Nunez, who joins as a series regular, will play a colleague of Nina’s.
