The stars of The Office are on multiple cover of Entertainment Weekly this week — Jenna Fischer & John Krasinski, BJ Novak & Mindy Kaling, Rainn Wilson & Angela Kinsey and Steve Carell & Melora Hardin. Here are some snippets from the cover feature:
– Kooky crank Creed (Creed Bratton) and Darryl from the warehouse (Craig Robinson) have been upgraded to series regulars.
– Rashida Jones is slated to return for two episodes to tie up her story line as Jim’s awesome but not-true love Karen, before she disappears into her new Fox midseason comedy, Unhitched.
– What about Jim (Krasinski) and Pam (Fischer)? Fischer uses the word ”courtship” in reference to the next phase of their relationship — ”There’s something about Jim and Pam that is true love personified in a TV show,” she says sweetly — while bemoaning how painful it is to stare up at the much taller Krasinski after breaking bones in her back in a fall during the off-season. Daniels, of course, is vague, making reference only to ”a soap opera-y thing that I’m gonna let be a surprise.” We nod, smile, and think to ourselves: What is this, Lost?
