Mindy Kaling returning to 'The Office'

Mindy Kaling is returning to The Office — albeit briefly

The actress says she’s going to have an opportunity to say goodbye to Kelly Kapoor on the NBC comedy this fall.

Kaling, of course, is starring in her own new comedy, The Mindy Project, on Fox this fall. But she told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s semi-annual press tour Monday that she believes she’ll appear in at least one episode of her old show. “I think I’m going to be in the premiere and maybe another episode,” she says. “That was big. I got attached to that character. It’s fun to see what’s going to happen to Kelly.”

Kaling also made a distinction between her Mindy Project character and Kapoor. “The Office in so many ways is about disguising your reactions because its a mock documentary,” she said. “In some ways, this [show] is a reaction to that.”

The actress revealed that Office co-creator Greg Daniels will direct an episode of Mindy Project during its first season. READ FULL STORY

'The Office' scoop: B.J. Novak not returning as a series regular

Another Dunder-Mifflin fave is heading for the door.

B.J. Novak will not return as a series regular for the upcoming ninth season of The Office, sources confirm to EW. Novak, who has also served as a writer and co-executive producer on the series, will possibly return as a guest star.

The announcement comes about two months after Mindy Kaling’s new show was picked up by Fox, solidifying her departure from the aging comedy, which two years ago bid farewell to Steve Carell.

'Office' star Oscar Nunez gets defensive in Casey Anthony movie

EW has confirmed that The Office star Oscar Nuñez has been cast in Lifetime’s Prosecuting Casey Anthony. Nuñez will play Anthony’s headline-grabbing attorney Jose Baez and face off against Rob Lowe, who we previously reported has signed on to play prosecutor Jeff Ashton. Taking on the dramatic role of Baez shouldn’t be too much of a stretch for the stone-faced Nuñez, who often plays Dunder Mifflin’s comedic straight man.

'The Office' scoop: B.J. Novak gives BIG finale intel, teases more Florida fun

a special, odd year for The Office, and it is about Dunder-Mifflin finding its way after the departure of this hurricane,” he tells EW.

And as the creative team looks toward the end of this trying season, Novak warns that fans should prepare for another earth-shaker: The truth about Angela’s new baby, which she currently claims belongs to her senator husband. “Dwight will go on a quest to prove the paternity. He has a whole scheme concocted to get some DNA to test, and it is one of the best schemes I’ve ever seen him do,” says Novak. “[The answer] will either be in the last second of the finale or a cliff-hanger. We’ll take it right down to the wire.”

The odds currently stand in Dwight’s favor, of course. Not only is Angela’s baby enormous, “which is a Schrute tradition,” Novak points out, but there have “been some questions about the senator’s private inclinations.” READ FULL STORY

'Office' scoop: Cast talks Rainn Wilson spin-off, renewal odds

Will there really be an Office spin-off starring Rainn Wilson following Dwight Schrute as a beet farmer? And will The Office get a ninth season?

The Office cast discussed the headlines — and an upcoming road trip — on the red carpet for the SAG Awards Sunday.

Wilson confirmed that a spin-off was definitely being discussed. “We’re talking about a Dwight Schrute spin-off that could be really cool,” he said. “[The show] would have a crazy menagerie of characters… It would be even more far-out and weird than The Office.” Yet Office costar and co-executive producer B.J. Novak preferred to hedge his bets and downplayed the concept. “That’s just an idea right now,” he told “It’s just an idea. We will see more of Dwight’s farm later this season in a regular episode… but that won’t necessarily become a series.”

Though it might seem counterintuitive, the spin-off idea makes it more likely that The Office will get a ninth season. The original show would be needed to help launch and promote the new series. READ FULL STORY

NBC developing 'The Office' spin-off for Rainn Wilson

Now this is a spin-off worth cheering over: NBC is giving consideration to a new family comedy that would feature The Office character Dwight Schrute as a farmer.

Yep, you read that right. Deadline is reporting that Schrute — played by Rainn Wilson — would conceivably return home to the family beet farm and bed-and-breakfast. A backdoor pilot would air later this season and take place at the Schrute Farms. If picked up to series, the show would likely air as part of NBC’s midseason lineup in 2013. READ FULL STORY

Krasinski looks like he’s having a ball, so clearly there are no hard feelings about Elmo’s spot-on Jim Halpert impression. Watch the video below: READ FULL STORY
