Steve Carell on Premiere

If this has been mentioned, feel free to delete.

Steve Carell is on the cover of the July/August issue of Premiere magazine. The article doesn't mention The Office too much (it focuses on Evan Almighty and Little Miss Sunshine), but it's a good read. Judd Apatow talks about how Steve Carell & Will Ferrel are pretty normal people who are funny because they look at the world from a weird angle. Then there's a quote from Rainn Wilson that I love - "Maybe many years from now they'll discover Steve has a room in his house where he's bitten the heads off dolls. They'll find, like, eight thousand dolls with their heads chewed off. But that would be it. There wouldn't be any drugs, he never cheated on his wife, no alcohol in the equation - just one really weird thing that is ultimately discovered about Steve Carell."

Also thought I'd mention - the group discussed a long time ago about how we couldn't find Jenna Fischer in The 40-Year-Old Virgin. In case you never found her either, I just watched the movie again last night and she is in fact at the club where Andy hooks up with the drunk girl who wants to "get some fuckin' french toast." It's right at the beginning of the scene and she's in a black dress on a couch next to some girls who are doing body shots. It's quick, so don't blink or you'll miss it!

This morning I saw a commercial for an episode of Comedy Central's Reno 911 and Oscar makes an appearance. It airs on Sunday, but I didn't catch the time.

The Christmas Party and Booze Cruise recaps by Veronica Mars and Logan Echolls

Veronica Mars? But theoffice_us is a community for items related to NBC's The Office (US).

neptune_online is a bi-weekly blog at LiveJournal, "written by" the characters of Veronica Mars, where they blog about their interests, much like Rainn's in-character blog at TV Guide, and the various blogs written by The Office characters, at MySpace.

In this latest issue, Veronica Mars and Logan Echolls recap and review episodes of NBC's The Office: 2:10, Christmas Party and 2:11, Booze Cruise, here.

They also link to NorthernAttack.Com and GiveMeMyRemote.com in the process. The recap includes select Christmas Party and Booze Cruise screepcaps, courtesy of the generous buffymars at office_caps.

Veronica and Logan gave an overview of season 1 of The Office (US), its premise, and characters, in a past edition of neptune_online [here]. Veronica's friend, Wallace Fennel, was the one to sell her on The Office (US), in the first place [here], when life in Neptune had her down. There are mentions of the UK original series in both of those entries, as well.

I don't want to take up space devoted to The Office, explaining the premise of the neptune_online blog, so see my explanation [in my own LJ], if you have questions about that (and questions about VM spoilers), before reading the recaps. Cheers.

Oscar on Reno 911!

HEADS UP! I just saw a preview and it appears Oscar Nunez will return to guest star in a new episode of Reno 911! this Sunday on Comedy Central. He played a police captain in two episodes of the show three years ago. In the preview, he's in a prisoners uniform, so he's likely playing a different role (often done on this show).
