We’re so close to new episodes of The Office we can hardly contain ourselves. The last month and half has been painful, and like desperate drug addicts who needed a fix, we’ve used whatever we could find on the internet to tide us over. Deleted scenes, mash-ups, MySpace blogs, games, interviews– it didn’t matter; we were desperate. Thankfully, we’re almost there. Whew. But if for some reason you don’t think you’ll be able to make it till tomorrow’s oversized episode, here’s one last fix; an interview with Mindy Kaling, a.k.a. Ryan’s girl Kelly. Check it out to learn more about the cutest female Indian character on TV (not named Sanjaya), Scranton, and what it’s like to work at The Office. We particularly liked her idea on how to keep Dunder Mifflin around even if some of our favorite characters moved on:
My dream is that when Steve leaves the show, we could have Amy Poehler come on as the boss. I think Amy’s flawless. I have this fantasy that we’ll get this female boss, and at the beginning, she’ll seem totally normal and what a relief, and then we’ll find out that there’s lots of different horrible, crazy kinds of bosses. Or Kathy Bates or something. How funny would that be?
Poehler or Bates? We’re in. Check out the full interview here.
