John Krasinski Talks OFFICE Romance at the TCAs (SPOILERS)

July 16, 2007 by  

John Krasinski, TCA

Today was the NBC comedy panel at the TCAs. I’m going to be providing a full update later tonight. GMMR couldn’t be there, but our friends over at MeeVee were and they got to corner my boy John Krasinski to talk about the upcoming season of THE OFFICE. Here are a few quotes on Jim, Pam and yes even Karen:

“There’s a Lot of Pressure…”
“Just the way they have written these two characters, they’re so compatible for each other, I think it would be interesting to see, after all that pressure, what a relationship would be like,” Krasinski said. “I feel like there would be some sort of awkwardness. There’s a lot of pressure on that and I think both of those characters would feel that after a while. There’s a lot of fun stuff they could do with it, and then there’s a lot of fun stuff you could do with making people wait a little longer.”

“Slap Everybody in the Face…”
When I met up with Rashida Jones not too long ago, she told me that Karen Fillipelli would indeed be back for Season 4 of THE OFFICE. But I was sworn to secrecy so I couldn’t say anything. Today Mr. Krasinski confirmed that Rashida Jones would be returning for a “handful” of episodes. About Karen’s return John says “I think she’ll come in and slap everybody in the face and then walk out. It’ll be glorious.”

“It’s Not Just a Love Story…”
“You’re not dealing with two characters you’re dealing with two people who have insecurities and fears. I know from playing this character that it’s not easy to tell some girl you love her after she’s almost been married. There’s a fine line between morals and things like that. It’s not just a love story, we’re dealing with some wild, complicated stuff. And I think it will be interesting to see what the office’s reaction is if we start dating.”

Much more with John Krasinski from MeeVee.

    Wow – Karen will be back for more than just the premiere? That will be rather interesting… I kind of have a feeling that we may also see Roy back sometime soon just to make things even more stressful for JAM fans!

    hmmm “If we start dating?????” I don’t know how I feel about those words.

    Anyways, I’d like to see what it would be like for them to wait it out a bit more, it would be so interesting to see if they don’t get together right away.

    Thank you so much for this interview. I have been feeling Office withdrawl. I think it’s interesting that he hasn’t gotten to read the first script yet and he’s speculating like the rest of us.

    Counting the days until Sept. 27th.

    Just a headsup. That link “Much more” at the bottom, doesn’t seem to work anymore. They seem to have moved it to another page.

    It’s still there. I think TV with MeeVee was down earlier when you checked.
