If this is what happens when cast members (aside from regulars B.J. Novak and Paul Lieberstein) take the reins then the writing and directing duties should be kept in house much more often. “Christmas Wishes” is among the season’s best so far not only because it had me laughing consistently, but because each of its multiple stories had clear climaxes and resolutions that I felt emotionally invested in and on top of that, they all felt connected. I know this is easier to accomplish during an episode where all the characters are attending the same party, but Mindy Kaling (Kelly Kapoor) still deserves much recognition for writing a hilarious episode that featured the most natural dialogue true to the characters all season. This is of course due in no small part to the familiarity Kaling has with the characters she’s worked with since she »

Catherine Tate is on her way back to Scranton.
The British actress will reprise her role of Nellie Bertram - one of several hopefuls for the Branch Manager job on last season's finale - for multiple episodes, according to a NBC press release.
Look for Betram to be hired by Sabre Chairman of the Board Jo Bennett as a "misguided special projects manager." And with whom might she get involved romantically?
"Her relationship with Robert California will be far from professional. We're thrilled that she's joining the cast," said executive producer Paul Lieberstein.
No word yet on when Tate will return. But there are lot of funny words each week on The Office! Visit the show's quotes section now! »

Tate guest-starred in last season's finale as Nellie Bertram, a friend of Jo's (Kathy Bates) who interviewed for Michael's (Steve Carell) vacant position. Over the summer there were reports that she was a contender for the role that eventually went to James Spader, but she was doing a play in London and couldn't join the show at the start of the season.
She's free now and will join the show later in the season. Although Robert California (Spader) is now the CEO of Dunder Mifflin/Sabre, but Jo is still chairman of the board, and she hires Nellie as a special projects manager who reports directly to the corporate office.
"Catherine is hysterical. We introduced her briefly in last season's finale and knew she had to be a part of the show somehow," executive producer Paul Lieberstein says. "We're thrilled that she's joining the cast. »
Whoa Nellie, look who is coming back to Dunder Mifflin! NBC announced today that Catherine Tate will return to The Office to reprise her role as Nellie Bertram. She’ll show up in the second half of the season after she’s hired by friend and Chairman Jo Bennett (Kathy Bates) as a “misguided special projects manager working directly for the corporate office who very much enjoys the favoritism received from Bennett.”
Tate first joined the NBC comedy in last season’s finale as one of the candidates interviewing for Michael Scott’s job.
“Catherine is hysterical,” said executive producer Paul Lieberstein in a statement. »

Catherine Tate will return to The Office later this year to reprise her role as Nellie Bertram. NBC announced on Friday that Tate will return during the second half of the sitcom's current season when Nellie is hired as a special projects manager by Sabre's corporate office. "Catherine is hysterical. We introduced her briefly in last season's finale and knew she had to be a part of the show somehow," explained executive producer and Office cast member Paul Lieberstein. "We'll meet her again as corporate's special (more) »

If you're still bummed that Catherine Tate wasn't chosen as the new boss on "The Office," the show has a consolation prize for you: She'll return this season. Tate's character, Nellie Bertram, appeared in last season's finale to interview for Michael Scott's former position. She returns as a "corporate special projects manager, and her relationship with Robert California [played by James Spader] will be far from professional," executive producer Paul Lieberstein said. She will join in the second half of the season. Tate's credits include the BBC series, "The Catherine Tate Show," in »

Catherine Tate will make her return appearance sometime during the second half of Season 8, reprising her role as Nellie Bertram, who was interviewed for Michael Scott's job during last year's season finale. She is recruited as a special project manager working for the corporate office by close friend and Chairman of the Board, Jo Bennett (Kathy Bates, who'll not be seen this year).
"Catherine is hysterical. We introduced her briefly in last season's finale and knew she had to be a part of the show somehow. We'll meet her again as corporate special projects manager, and »
If this doesn’t get you to check back into The Office this season nothing will: Uproarious British comedian Catherine Tate is returning to the show in February for an arc that will carry through for the remainder of the season (and hopefully beyond).
Best. News. Ever.
Tate will reprise her role from last May’s finale as misguided special projects manager Nellie Bertram, who was one of the candidates interviewing to replace Michael Scott (Steve Carell) as the manager of Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch (a gig that ultimately went to Ed Helms’ Andy).

A quick review of last night's "The Office" coming up just as soon as I kayak to my job at the bike shop... If there's been a consistent element to Paul Lieberstein's work on this show - first as one of many writers, now as the man in charge of steering this old battleship - it's that he understands what makes the main characters tick, and is able to use that for real emotional resonance, in episodes like "The Job," "Money," "Goodbye Toby," all the way up through last week's Lieberstein-scripted "The Incentive." When the show wants to give Jim, or »

Fischer and her husband, Lee Kirk, welcomed a baby boy named Weston Lee into the world on Sept. 24. Both he and his mom are "doing great," her rep tells People.
It's the first child for the couple, who have been married for 15 months.
Fischer said over the summer that she got pregnant in real life around the same time that she filmed the episode in which Pam and Jim (John Krasinski) conceive their second child.
"Pam and Jim snuck away last season on Valentine's Day, and they had sex," she said at the time. "The story is that they conceived this baby at that time and were keeping it a secret until we come back from the summer. »
We saw Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth hard at work on their latest film with pictures from the set of Snow White and the Huntsman. New pics from the set of The Dark Knight Rises surfaced as well, giving us a look at Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in full costume. As we said so long to September, we broke down the highs and lows the month had to offer in entertainment. We chatted with Seth Rogen and screenwriter Will Reiser about the real-life inspiration behind 50/50. With many of you already thinking about costumes, we brought you pics of the Pretty Little Liars' Halloween episode, and spoke with Ed Helms and Paul Lieberstein about what to expect from The Office's Halloween episode. Speaking of sneak peeks, we saw season two photos from Walking Dead and got our first look at Dustin Hoffman in HBO's Luck. We love Happy Endings and think you will too, »
We now know why Robert California picked Andy Bernard to be Dunder Mifflin's new branch manager -- and we got a firmer idea of why the "The Office's" real-life bosses chose Ed Helms. "The Incentive" was a more assured take on the new dynamic at Dunder Mifflin, and we're happy to see the progress.
The episode also gave a little more insight into Robert's personality and how, as showrunner Paul Lieberstein said in our interview, he likes to control any interaction he's part of. Witness his observation that Erin and Andy like one another, then near-immediate loss of interest when Andy starts in with their history.
And, Ok, we can't say be blame him, but it goes to the point Lieberstein was making.
Robert also gives a stirring speech about how companies like Dunder Mifflin matter again, and oh by the way you need to double your sales growth and just do it, »
There was a fair amount of debate over the summer about who should get the branch manager's job vacated by Michael Scott (Steve Carell) on "The Office." Should it be Jim? Dwight? Andy? Someone from the outside?
A similar discussion took place in the show's writers room, but when it came time to make a decision, "there wasn't a lot to think about," executive producer Paul Lieberstein (aka Toby Flenderson) tells Zap2it. Andy Bernard, played by Ed Helms, just seemed like the right fit.
"We seriously considered everyone," Lieberstein says. "You have to seriously consider Craig [Robinson, who plays Darryl] and Rainn [Wilson, who plays Dwight]. But when it comes to the character of Darryl, it was someone who was maybe too smart and rational to run a comedy show, you know?
"And with Rainn, it was not Rainn, it was Dwight we had to rule out because he would not let the office be the office anymore. »
The Office returned for its latest season last week with a few changes, including Andy Bernard (Ed Helms) taking over the managerial position vacated by Michael Scott (Steve Carell). Helms joined Paul Lieberstein, who writes for the show in addition to playing human resources manager Toby Flenderson, to talk with reporters about why Andy was the right man for the job. The pair also filled us in on how Andy will deal with Dunder Mifflin's intimidating new CEO Robert California (James Spader), his on-again, off-again girlfriend Erin (Ellie Kemper), and his soon-to-debut brother, who will be played by guest star Josh Groban. Why did you decide that Andy should be the new manager? Paul Lieberstein: Well, there are a lot of aspects to the Andy Bernard character to make him extremely suited to manager. One, I think, it's that he cares about people more than he does about the product. »

Who's the (new) boss? It was the question on every Office fan's mind ever since Steve Carell announced in June 2010 that he planned to leave Scranton for good at the end of Season 7. In the end, it took more than a year for Dunder Mifflinites to get their man — Andy Bernard — but star Ed Helms believes the waiting game was actually a blessing.
"I think it gave us all time to just sort of zen out about it and come to terms with whatever it might be," Helms told reporters on a conference call Tuesday.

"The Office" executive producer Paul Lieberstein likens Andy Bernard (Ed Helms) being the new branch manager at Dunder Mifflin Scranton to a potentially great quarterback in football who knows next to nothing about the rules of the game.
"There's an arm there ... it's just, you've got to figure it out," Lieberstein says. "He didn't start with competency. And probably for the first game or two, he's a little distracted by the cheerleaders."
Helms hopes that Andy's on-the-job learning curve, and the fact that there's an intimidating new boss -- James Spader's Robert California -- above him make for good comedy this season.
"Andy's leadership is a little bit of an open question, and that's what I'm really excited to flesh out," Helms said Tuesday (Sept. 27) on a conference call with reports. "And it was really fun in that opening episode to kind of see a little bit of that »
