Exclusive: 'The Office' hires Amy Pietz

amy-pietzKudos to the HR folks over at The Office on their latest blockbuster hire: Sources confirm to me exclusively that the sublime and criminally underrated Amy Pietz is joining the cast for multiple episodes.

Pietz — best known from her supporting stints on Caroline in the City, Aliens in America, and Rodney — will first air in April and… um… er… that’s pretty much all I can tell you at this point. Suffice it to say her character description is laced with more than a few spoilers.

Of course, don’t let that stop you from speculating in the comments. Also, feel free to echo my sentiments re: Pietz (and please explain to me why she isn’t a bigger star).

    I’m guessing she’s a love interest for Michael.

    • marymary

      One can only hope, Michael needs a love interest badly… maybe a little love triangle between her, Michael and of all people Toby! That would be super fun to watch!

      • Jacob

        That actually sounds fantastic. To have Michael pine after a girl Toby is dating would be sweet, sweet irony.

      • Jessica

        I agree 110%!!!! I would love to see a Toby/Michael love triangle with this new chick!!!

      • Butter

        Nice. “What…Gives you the right?”

    • DECE

      Sam -
      I agree wholeheartedly, and have always thought that Amy would be a natural for this show and a perfect “other half” for Michael. She has great comedic timing and no problem making fun of herself. Kudos for this casting info!

    • Celia

      Exactly. I’m happy she’s a brunette. All of his past “loves” have been blondes.

    • Craig

      I hope not. Michael is an ass, and I’d hate to see her wasted on him.

  • Ryan

    Amy Pietz is great! I loved her on Aliens in America, and the regular scenes of her in CATS was pretty much the only reason I watched Caroline in the City.

    • Jason

      Count me as another big fan. Her work on Aliens in America was seriously funny stuff.

  • Kyle

    obviously a love interest for Michael

  • Muscle

    Mike, how can you forget to mention that she was in the criminally underrated “Muscle”?!?! GOD, I love that show.

    She played an in the closet lesbian, who comes out on the air!

    Anybody else loved “Muscle”?

  • RikerDonegal

    Loved her on Caroline. Deserves to be a huge star. Very hot, and VERY funny.

  • Christy

    LOVE HER! Yes, she’s seriously underrated. Hopefully the Office writers will create a storyline good enough for her to come back.

  • Seanti

    Here’s hoping they let her keep her Wisconsin accent from Aliens in America. So good.

  • Semaphore

    She can sing a capella, so I’m betting she’s a more age appropriate love interest for Andy Bernard.

  • Ramo

    Aliens in America was SO good. I miss that show…

  • Jennifer

    She’s gotta be a love interest for Michael!

  • HeyBuddyReviews.com

    She was in the last season of Ally McBeal too and was entertaining!

  • B

    What about a love interest for Dwight? Michael and Dwight could fight over her… Would Angela get jealous? That would be a funny scenario

  • Danielle

    There is an episode coming up called “Happy Hour” in which Michael bends over backward and makes an a** of himself while trying to impress a friend of JAM’s.

  • Mike B

    She will be a cougar that goes after Jim.

  • Jen E.

    Why are you Bogarting the spoilers, Aus???
