THE OFFICE and Joshua Jackson News!
February 21, 2008 by Kath Skerry
Wow, even as I was writing that title I realized that even teasing that Joshua Jackson might be on THE OFFICE is incredibly cruel. But it got your attention, didn’t it? Sadly no, my dreams of dreams won’t be coming true…Josh Jackson won’t be playing Jim Halpert’s brother (can you imagine), but there is some scoop on both of my favorite things this week courtesy of E!’s Kristin Dos Santos.
THE OFFICE will thankfully be returning with new episodes on April 10th (praise Jesus) and Kristin’s sources tell her that after the long awaited “Dinner Party” episode, the storyline will indeed jump to the present time, and will acknowledge the 5 month time jump caused by the WGA strike. How will they do this? Really, are you questioning the OFFICE writers? Don’t you know better by now? Jumping time isn’t really new to the show. The documentary film crew capturing the day to day happenings of Dunder Mifflin have always taken the summer months off. Sadly, it’s why we missed Jim and Pam’s first date. I just can’t wait for my favorite show to be back. April seems so very far away.
Any theories on how THE OFFICE writers can explain the 5 month jump in time?
From my favorite show to one of my favorite all time TV boyfriends. It’s been confirmed that despite the strike, Josh Jackson will be guesting on GREY’S ANATOMY this season after all. There was much buzz when his mini story arc was announced last year, but the WGA strike out that and all other stories on hold. But according to Kristin, Jackson will be appearing this season (YAY) and will be a love interest for Christina (BOO). Don’t get your hopes up for Josh to join the cast as a regular though, as he’s already filming the pilot for a new J.J. Abrams sci-fi show on Fox called FRINGE.
