“The Office” Stars Go Hi-Tech

November 16, 2006 by  

It’s not the end of Office Thursday until I say so!! So here’s another little goodie for you Office fans out there. John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, BJ Novak, Rainn Wilson and Steve Carell talk to Parade Magazine about their views on their addiction to tech gadgets.

Steve Carell
I have figured out toasters and blenders and the television. I’ve got that down—the on/off button and the cable box. And I’m going to brag now: I can do everything with a microwave. But that pretty much covers it in terms of my technology acumen.
More from Steve

John Krasinski
I just got a BlackBerry. I used to make fun of my friends who had BlackBerries. And I know that the expression CrackBerry has been going around, but now I fully understand it. I’m actually addicted to a piece of machinery, and that’s really embarrassing.
More from John

Jenna Fischer

I have a MySpace page. So maybe people think that I’m a techie because of that. But I haven’t decorated it in any way. You can go in and write computer code so your page can be colorful or have streaming video. I don’t know how to do that.
More from Jenna

BJ Novak
I talk back to my computer, but I always know it’s really my fault. I say, “Dammit!” But I say it in a very soft whine. It’s sort of a, “We’re both at fault here, computer. You’re a bit mean. And I’m a bit of an idiot. Let’s figure this out together.” That’s what I mean my “dammit“ to sound like.
From BJ Novak

Rainn Wilson

I Google myself hourly. That’s why I love the Treo so much, because I’m continuously Googling myself. And I Google myself in different languages too. I see what the Romanians are saying about me, or the Finns. Apparently I’m very popular, especially in Finland.

    Rainn Wilson is so freaking hilarious. I like that he refers to himself as a “huge minor celebrity.”
    Why isn’t he more famous? He definately should do more movies.
    Also, his last comment about the robot was so very Dwightish.

    I agree Bill, Rainn is too funny. I love when he said his first cell phone was the size of a toaster oven.

    I caught him on Bill Mahr last night on HBO. I was expecting more humor from him, instead I think he tried to come off as more intellectual, it was a departure from his usual personality. I was laughing more at the things Salmon Rushdi said. Oh well, you can’t win ’em all.

    I Love B.J.’s expression in the photo.

    “I would rather give up my microwave then my Tivo” If i had a Tivo i would be saying the same thing! Way to go Jenna!
