According to the Advocate, John Krasinski Has a Big Gay Following

"As paper-pushing prankster Jim Halpert on NBC’s Emmy-winning comedy The Office, now in its fourth season, John Krasinski won our hearts as he awkwardly romanced Pam the receptionist. Punching in for his first chat with gay media to promote his new football comedy Leatherheads -- he thanked me afterward “for being so gentle” -- the 28-year-old holiday Gap model opened up about costar George Clooney’s irresistible superpowers, his own sex-symbol status, and riding high on BeyoncĂ©’s radar."

New Creed Thoughts

"What’s better than a nice, hot bath? Almost nothing except for a nice, hot bath with a foxy lady and some fine aged Dominican cigars."

Come on, it makes you want to keep reading, doesn't it?"

Greg Daniels Wants You To Be A Michael Scott!

USNews is ALL over "The Office" today! Here is a Q&A with Greg Daniels.

"For viewers who find themselves working in an office that feels very much like the one in the show, what's your advice on how to be successful in that kind of environment?

First of all, find out if you're the "Michael" in the office. If you are, congratulations. Success is yours. If you're not, just make sure you're not the "Meredith" because she gets hit with a car."

Are You A Jim Halpert?

U.S. News has this fun little story...

"A talented salesman with mad people skills, Jim has worked at Dunder Mifflin for several years—it was probably his first real job out of college—and has advanced from sales rep to assistant regional manager, but he is quite frank about his dispassion: "If I advance any higher, this would be my career. And if this were my career, I'd have to throw myself in front of a train."

He isn't alone in his ambivalence. Career coach Mary Jeanne Vincent says she sees many workers in their 40s and 50s who are still trying to figure out what they want to do when they grow up. "Many people have simply fallen into what they do, and it's comfortable and easy, and so they keep doing it," Vincent says."

Michael Schur Discusses Mose, Baseball, The Strike and Teri Hatcher!

All this and more is captured in a great interview Michael Schur did for a Kansas City blog recently.

"On to your other job, and I read where “The Office” is coming back on April 10, great news. Did the strike scare you? What's the best picket line story you can tell me?

The fear for me was that the explicably adversarial relationship between the people who program content for a living and the people who provide that content would metastasize, and before cooler heads prevailed, the entire TV industry would collapse in on itself like a dying star. (So yes, it did scare me, I guess.) Thankfully, the AMPTP finally realized that the total amount of money we are asking for is less than what Rupert Murdoch pays his mechanic’s assistant’s pool guy’s plumber’s animal trainer’s tennis instructor’s mechanic.

As for picket line stories, the best and funniest one was definitely the time a group of us walked in circles for 3 hours at the CBS lot. The second best story was the time a group of us walked in circles for 3 hours at the Paramount lot."

E!'s Kristin Says 30 Episodes Sounds Real!

"Sarah in Portland, Oregon: Is it true we're getting 30 half-hours of The Office next season?

I'm hearing that NBC actually requested 32 half-hours, but producers think that's just beyond the pale, so it could settle out at 30 after all. Meanwhile, ABC has requested 24 hours of Desperate Housewives next season. I'm also told that DH is able to do seven new eps to finish out this season by working seven consecutive Saturdays, so when the show returns, you raise a glass to the cast and crew for putting their backs into it."

Here is what we missed while we were gone...

- Happy Birthday Jenna Fischer!

- New Creed Thoughts!

- Kevin Malone Blogs!

- New Adventures with Angela!

- Leslie David Baker interviewed by FanCast!

- Steve Carell on MySpace, Regis and Kelly, and The Today Show.

- And how could we forget that Jenna was featured in Playboy!! (An article - she didn't "pose", calm down.)

Jenna and John C Reilly together again!

Jenna Fischer is joining John C. Reilly again in their new movie: "The Promotion".

"Here's the gist: Doug (Seann William Scott) is a painfully nice guy with a lovely little wife and a dead-end job as assistant manager at a supermarket. But when the company plans to open a bigger and fancier store in a nearby neighborhood, Doug sees his shot at the big-time: A store manager position that comes with a swanky raise and all sorts of extra benefits.

It's got a great supporting cast (Jenna Fischer, Gil Bellows, Bobby Cannavale, and Rick Gonzalez steal a few scenes of their own), although the flick is definitely the Scott / Reilly show -- and both of the actors really kill here. Plus Jason Bateman shows up for a few minutes, and that's always a plus."
