The Office encounter

This morning I left my office to deliever something for a client and while doing so I met an actor from the TV show "The Office." Ed Helms who plays Andy Bernard in the series. I'm told he plays the suck up. I don't actually watch the show, so I didn't recognize him, but he looked somewhat familiar and then I realized like his co-star Steve Carrel, he was also a correspondent on The Daily Show, thus is politician/reporter look.

He was there filming an opening seqment for a trade show event that my client is hosting and unlike when I was working in the same room as The Cheetah Girls, he did not ignore "the little people" and instead said to me, "Hello, my name is Ed." I said my name was Tara and that I was on the PR side, whatever that meant. I didn't get to see him film his bit though, just was there while he was getting ready and deciding which tie to wear. I also overheard about how "The Office" doesn't have any more shows recorded because of the WGA strike, thus the recent re-runs and his availability for this promo. But when I was leaving, I wished him good luck on the filming.

If you a fan of The Office, get up to speed on the series by playing the DVDs on portable
DVD players
and see what you've been missing. There's really nothing better than snuggling up in a recliner with a good DVD or book.

  3. Hi, I found you randomly on the web. :)

    I LOVE this show, it's so fabulous! My dad does some acting on the side & it's always fun to hear which actors are genuinely kind & which don't give you the light of day.

    I love that show. Ed is a new-be the past two seasons. I'm glad he's a nice guy in person.
