Although “The Office” was a British born television show from Ricky Gervais; there’s no question the American version was one of the biggest television programs in American history.
Many of the cast went on to become big time stars like Steve Carell, John Krasinski, Rainn Wilson, Mindy Kaling and Ed Helms.
And some of “The Office” stars were in the news this week; one instance was undeniably hilarious while the other was truly bizarre.
“The Office” was the American show of the 2000s and garnered countless nominations for the Emmy and Golden Globe Awards.
It was the everyday show for working class Americans about the hilarity behind-the-scenes of working in a mundane office atmosphere.
“The Office” was a show about nothing; similar to the premise of “Seinfeld.”
It was unique, funny and featured off-the-wall characters you couldn’t help but laugh or cringe at.
One of the best parts of the hit show was the relationship between Jim and Pam (Krasinski and Jenna Fischer), which started off as a crush and eventually resulted in their marriage.
Throughout the Stanley Cup Finals between the Saint Louis Blues and the Boston Bruins – Fischer and Krasinski are diehard fans of respectively – they had been talking trash back and forth on Twitter. The came Game 7 and this happened.

The actor who sits down next to Krasinski is David Denman, who plays Roy Anderson, Pam’s first boyfriend in the show who is in on the gimmick acting like he’s not excited to hear the name “Jenna” at all. And to cap it off, Krasinski gives us the classic Jim smirk.
And then there’s a recent interview with Mindy Kaling whose new movie “Late Night” hits theaters this weekend, which was really weird to learn.
Apparently Kaling won’t reveal her now 18-month-old daughter’s father’s name until he talks to her first about it.
She told The New York Times Magazine, “My feeling is that until I speak to my daughter about that, I’m not going to talk to anyone else about it.” Clearly she had the child out of wedlock.
But then she said, “I did not think I had a big maternal instinct. I’m very impatient, and having a baby requires an amount of patience that I was worried about. But they don’t tell you that the thing will look so much like you, and do things that are so sweet and adorable, that you’ll naturally not have the same impatience that you would have with a stranger or someone who works for you.”
It’s the secrecy that’s bizarre. Is she ashamed of who the father is, and if so, why wouldn’t she make up another excuse if that was the case?
Kaling’s response is bizarre because it was unnecessary to even give an answer. All she had to say was “no comment” and then it would’ve been left alone.
It almost seems like she was intentionally being coy for some unknown reason.
Kaling concluded about wanting the child in the first place, “I wasn’t ready. I don’t think anyone is ever ready. I definitely knew I wanted kids, but the decision, it was not something that I had, like, planned, I have been really surprised by how much I crave time with her. Just that there was a side of me that could really enjoy being around the baby.”
