Jenna Fischer not prepared for baby's arrival

April 5th, 2014 6:20pm EDT
Jenna Fischer
Jenna Fischer isn't prepared for her baby's birth.
The 40-year-old actress and her husband Lee Kirk, who married in 2010, are "getting close" to welcoming their second child into the world, but the brunette beauty is yet to set up the tiny tot's nursery and fill it with supplies.
She said: "There's nothing done. My mom and I got all the nursery supplies in order, so we have the appropriate number of onesies and diapers and a Diaper Genie -- but there's no décor. I just ordered a chair for my nursery and I'm very concerned that the baby is going to get here before the chair arrives."

The 39-year-old actress - who was famed for her role in 'The Office' - is expecting her second child this summer with her husband, Lee Kirk, Us Weekly magazine reports.
Although the couple are yet to give an official announcement on the pregnancy, Jenna re-tweeted a link to a news report by the celebrity news website on Twitter, which was seemingly her way of acknowledging the news.
She also hinted that she will have lots of baby news to talk about with Jimmy Kimmel's expectant wife, Molly McNearney as she tweeted: "Let's talk :) Congrats! (sic)."

Celebrities That Turn 40 In 2014

January 1st, 2014 11:00am EST
Leonardo DiCaprio
Happy New Years everyone and welcome to 2014!

It's that time of year for our annual "who is turning 40" this year extravaganza. Truth is, lots of people do, but we'll just keep it to the more famous variety of peeps in the world.

Doing some simple math, 40 years ago would make it 1974.

For those of you who weren't around that year, the mantra of 74' and the world was energy crisis -gasoline was a little hard to get and lines at gas stations were blocks long. Because of the crisis, our then President, Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon imposed a 55 MPH speed limit on highways. That wasn't the re...

Who Has The Best Celebrity Fans: St. Louis Cardinals Or Boston Red Sox?

October 23rd, 2013 1:07pm EDT
Jon Hamm
The St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox are headed to the World Series in a rematch of their 2004 series in which the Red Sox swept the Cardinals in four games to win their first title since 1918. The Cardinals have won the World Series twice since 2004 and were one game away from reaching the World Series last year.  However, we're more interested in what really matters: which team has the better celebrity fans! Let's take a look:

Jon Hamm, Cardinals: "Oh, my God, I’ve always been a huge Cardinals fan. I remember going to the World Series in ’82, ’85 and ’87, and this is amazing," Hamm...

2013 SAG Awards Fashion: Black, Navy Blue & Neutral Gowns Dominate

January 28th, 2013 9:19am EST
Jaimie Alexander
As we inch closer to the Academy Awards, tons of stars celebrated themselves at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards on Sunday night.

Jaimie Alexander of "The Last Stand" (above) was one of the few celebs who showed some skin on the red carpet in a low-cut black Marc Bouwer gown. Most opted for more conservative ensembles in black, navy blue, and other neutrals.

A handful stood out in bright colorful gowns, including Jessica Chastain and Kaley Cuoco in bright red and Lea Michele in a bright pink dress.

Jennifer Garner, whose husband Ben Affleck is earning accolades for "Argo," looked ele...

A ton of stars attended the 19th Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Tribute at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles on Monday night.

"Glee" actress Lea Michele showed off her figure in a see-through dress that revealed a black bustier underneath. Emma Stone opted for one of the brightest dresses on the red carpet with a hot pink gown with sheer sleeves and a white schoolgirl collar and cuffs.

Anna Kendrick wore a black and gold dress, while Nina Dobrev chose a bright blue and black lace ensemble. Emma Watson looked sophisticated in a black and cream colored frock.

The Office To End After Upcoming Ninth Season

August 21st, 2012 10:12pm EDT
The Office
The upcoming ninth season of hit comedy The Office will be its last.

The Emmy Award-winning series, based on comedian Ricky Gervais' hit British incarnation of the same name, premiered in 2005, essentially launching the careers of several little-known actors, including Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Mindy Kaling and Jenna Fischer.

The program has gained a large following ever since, thanks to lead characters Ed Helms and Steve Carell, who quit the series last year, but on Tuesday, executive producer Greg Daniels shocked fans by announcing they are calling it quits.

He tells The Hollywood ...

'The Office' Recap: 'Free Family Portrait Studio'

May 12th, 2012 4:54pm EDT
Angela Kinsey
‘The Office’ has limped to the season-ending finish line with ‘Free Family Portrait Studio.’ With only a couple of laugh-out-loud moments and plenty of change ahead, it makes one worry for the series’ future. But let’s start with what actually happens.

Andy returns to Dunder Mifflin (again) looking pathetic as ever. He’s dressed like a janitor and asks Nellie for any sort of work. She allows him to be a carpet cleaner, for which he appears grateful. As it turns out, though, he’s just putting on an act. He knows David Wallace has bought Dunder Mifflin and that he will be returned to the pos...

'The Office' Recap: 'Turf Wars'

May 6th, 2012 4:47pm EDT
The Office
A lot of people seem to think that if ‘The Office’ jumped the shark, it was with the “Michael Scott Paper Company” phase. Those who weren’t a fan of that storyline were probably a bit miffed by ‘Turf Wars,’ which sees Andy do practically the same thing.

Clearly, he’s still missing working at Dunder Mifflin. He comes into the office randomly one day to make lunch for his former coworkers. While he’s there, he sees quite a bit of drama unfold.

Robert California walks in and seems to be in a hung over stupor, vomiting in a trash can. He “celebrated” the night before upon finding out his divo...

'The Office''s Jenna Fischer Defends Keeping On The Baby Weight

May 2nd, 2012 8:07pm EDT
Jenna Fischer defends baby weight
Why the pressure to lose weight right after pregnancy? Jenna Fischer of The Office tells moms to put off the task of taking off the pounds after popping out a kid.

Hollywood has a knack for celebrating everything: Quality acting abilities, noteworthy movie direction, beautiful costumes and best kisses. Philanthropy and world traveling are applauded like musical performances at annual award shows.

It's an industry that acknowledges a job well done… except when it comes to motherhood, says Jenna. The pressure for women to take off the baby weight immediately after giving birth is downrigh...

'The Office' Recap: 'The Fundraiser'

April 29th, 2012 4:02pm EDT
The Office
Public functions don’t seem to go well with ‘The Office’ folk. Numerous embarrassing situations typically emerge, and ‘The Fundraiser’ is no exception.

Robert California announces that he’s bought two tables at a fundraiser for an animal welfare society, an event hosted by Angela’s (state) senator husband. Let’s see, where should we start with all the awkwardness?

Andy shows up uninvited. He ends up heckling Robert and announces his exciting plans for the rock opera he’s been writing in his spare time. In an effort to show everyone that he’s okay after being fired, he aims to impress. He ...

'The Office' Recap: 'Welcome Party'

April 15th, 2012 10:13am EDT
Ellie Kemper
With Andy and Erin on their way back from Florida, the rest of the crew (including Robert) awaits new boss Nellie’s arrival. It seems she slept in, hitting the snooze button nine times, and seems overwhelmed with moving all of her stuff into her apartment “in the suburb of a suburb.” Robert quickly assigns Jim and Dwight to help her unpack, while the rest of the staff is tasked with throwing Nellie a welcome party. Oh joy.

Meanwhile, back on the road, Andy and Erin are rehearsing how Andy should break up with Jessica. He knows Jessica is at her family’s cabin so decides to stop and do it t...

'The Office' Recap: 'Get The Girl'

March 17th, 2012 8:12pm EDT
Ed Helms
This episode is called “Get the Girl” because of what Andy’s after. But it could have easily been titled regarding what Nellie’s after: Andy’s job. In the end, it looks like they both get what they want.

Andy has ridiculously bad timing by driving down to Florida to tell Erin he loves her and bring her back to Scranton. But Erin has built a (kinda lonely and boring) life for herself caring for her old lady (the sharp Georgia Engel). And, in a rather heartfelt and revealing conversation, she tells Andy that he’s broken her heart too many times and she’s realized it will never work for them....

'The Office' Recap: 'Last Day In Florida'

Todd Packer
It’s the end of the line for ‘The Office’ Floridians. Well, at least some of them.

When Jim, Dwight and Nellie join in a game of golf with Robert California (where have you been?) it becomes clear to Jim that Dwight’s job is in jeopardy. Clearly, Robert is not pleased with how things are going, although he oddly does not fault Nellie for this. Jim knows Dwight is as safe as one of Moze’s squirrels.

Back at the Scranton office – and let’s just dwell on this briefly – it’s time to sell Girl Scout cookies. Yes, that sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Toby and Darryl, who both have daughters at abo...

'The Office' Recap: 'Test The Store'

Catherine Tate
These two-sided episodes are getting a little old. The stuff going on in Florida is kind of interesting, but that makes everything else back in Scranton seem deadly dull. Let’s start there and get it over with.

A little gang of kids on bikes randomly attack Pam (really?) and when Andy intervenes, a 12-year-old girl punches him straight in the eye. Of course he doesn’t want to own up to it, so he and Pam tell the Office folk that they were attacked by a gang brandishing weapons.

After convincing the gang not to call the police, Andy has Toby conduct a self-defense course, the highlight of ...

'The Office' Recap: 'Tallahassee'

Catherine Tate
With “Tallahassee” James Spader’s Robert California is absent once again, but Catherine Tate joins the cast as Nellie Bertram, Sabre’s new president in charge of the new stores.

The Tallahassee crew, Jim, Dwight, Ryan, Kathy, Erin and Stanley, join Nellie for an introduction to the project, and Jim and Dwight are surprised to encounter Michael’s old (obnoxious) buddy Packer (David Koechner).

Nellie’s opening speech is naturally awkward (she points to her head and tells everyone to look at her penis rather than her breasts), and Tate brings almost as much awkwardness to her role as Steve C...

'The Office's' Jenna Fischer Leads New Romantic Comedy

Jenna Fischer
Jenna Fischer is set to step into the spotlight as the lead in the new romantic comedy The Giant Mechanical Man, co-starring Malin Akerman and Topher Grace.

It's hard not to love Jenna Fischer as Jim Halpert's adorable wife Pam on NBC's The Office. We've always wondered when Hollywood would give her the headlining roles she deserves — and that time is now!

The new mom stars in The Giant Mechanical Man, set for theatrical and on-demand release through Tribeca Film. The film follows Fischer's Janice, a thirtysomething woman who doesn't exactly get this whole "adulthood" thing. Much to Jani...

'The Office' Recap: 'Special Project'

February 11th, 2012 5:38pm EST
Ellie Kemper
When you get Dwight involved in a “special project,” you know strange things will happen. When Andy announces Dwight’s “promotion” to lead a three-week project down in Florida, he probably doesn’t know what he’s in for. And neither does anyone else in the office.

Dwight’s initial plan, which includes taking Darryl and Phyllis, among others, is botched for many reasons. Andy doesn’t agree with his choices, and Jim’s got a problem of his own – he gets a text from Robert California telling him to bring his clubs to Florida. Uh oh.

Pam’s return to the office mainly revolves around coaching ...

'The Office' Recap: 'Jury Duty'

February 5th, 2012 5:36pm EST
Angela Kinsey
I wouldn’t necessarily expect an episode of anything entitled “Jury Duty” to be hilarious. And I’d be right.

This wasn’t the worst episode of ‘The Office’ ever, but it certainly wasn’t anywhere near the top. It was, for the most part, boring. And while there were awkward parts, it was just painful and not very funny. What happened to this show being painfully funny?

Here’s the gist of the main plot: Jim was called for jury duty and ended up being released at noon on his first day. He decided to take the rest of the day off, and the next morning Pam needed help with the kids… and then he...

2012 SAG Fashion
Many stars attended last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards, and black was one of the most popular colors on the red carpet.

Angelina Jolie showed off her particularly thin figure in a draped black gown. Other stars in black included Stacy Keibler, Jayma Mays, Amber Heard, Ashlee Simpson, Emma Stone, Glenn Close, Heather Morris, Tina Fey and Melissa McCarthy.

But there were some spots of color in the bunch, including Sofia Vergara's bright pink gown and Emily Blunt's seafoam green dress.

'The Office' Recap: 'Christmas Wishes'

December 11th, 2011 11:18am EST
Rainn Wilson
‘Christmas Wishes’ is perhaps the strangest holiday episode of ‘The Office’ ever. Written by Mindy Kaling and directed by Ed Helms, the story features (obviously) Christmas wishes, drunkenness, a strange musical montage and more-than-ever awkward moments.

Let’s start with Jim and Dwight. Their new deskmate (more on that in a minute) gets sick of their constant pranks, so Andy tells them to knock it off, or the offending prankster will get the other’s bonus. This leads to many a trap, including Dwight leaving his wallet and keys out, and Jim loudly announcing his credit card number. Neither...

'The Office' Recap: 'Gettysburg'

Phyllis Smith
Is it just me, or is ‘The Office’ losing steam this season? The shake-up with the addition of James Spader kept things interesting for a little while, but I fear the show is already sinking back into staleness, and I’m wondering how it can recover. More on that in a minute.

It doesn’t take much to sum up this episode: Gettysburg. For some reason, Andy thinks it would be a fun idea to take the staff to Gettysburg for a field trip (umm, because selling paper is like war?). About half go with him, including Jim, Darryl, Dwight, Phyllis, Erin, Gabe and Oscar.

Everyone else, meanwhile, stays b...

'The Office' Recap: 'Pam's Replacement'

November 12th, 2011 6:02pm EST
James Spader
Are we used to Robert California yet? Didn’t think so. It’s interesting that he does unexpected things (playing harmonica in a blues band?) yet how he goes about it is the same. He manipulates people into letting him have his way. In the course of this episode’s 22 minutes, he goes from expressing admiration for “Kevin and the Zits” to taking over their band with entirely new members.

Parts of it are funny, including Andy playing the drums on his own body to feel like he is participating. But it is sweet to see him, Darryl and Kevin reunite in the parking lot for a good, old-fashioned jam,...

'The Office' Recap: 'Doomsday'

November 5th, 2011 1:47pm EDT
Zach Woods
We’re several weeks into the new TV season. How do you think ‘The Office’ is doing without Steve Carrel? Does Ed Helms seem like an appropriate replacement, and is James Spader giving the aging show a shot in the arm?

I will admit it: I miss Michael Scott. But I do enjoy Andy as boss, and Robert California is oddly fascinating. Still, it feels like the show is missing a center.

‘Doomsday’ is a good example. After a client accidentally gets an order for free, Robert insists that Andy eliminate office mistakes. Andy desperately agrees to Dwight’s offer to use a new system to catch errors. T...

'The Office' Recap: 'Spooked'

October 30th, 2011 6:02pm EDT
The Office
Cool costumes are a dime a dozen on Halloween episodes of ‘The Office.’ This year, they are censored by Andy, and as a result it isn’t so exciting. (Perhaps with the exception of Dwight and his sci fi boobs.) The real meat of this installment surrounds Erin and Andy’s awkward relationship.

First off, Erin is put in charge of decorating the office for Halloween. But the posters are tamer than a preschool party, as Robert California points out. Andy is apparently hot and cold with Erin, and she’s none too pleased when he asks Angela and Phyllis to assist her to make the office a little more ...

'The Office' Recap: 'Lotto'

October 6th, 2011 10:33pm EDT

This episode was a little underwhelming. It did a few things, though: It developed the Darryl-Andy relationship; it brought in some potentially new blood; and it took some office workers outside the office, which is always a welcome device.

Apparently, the six workers in the warehouse, formerly under Darryl, won a $950,000 lottery. That was apparently enough money to prompt them all to quit.

Darryl is supposed to be looking for new employees, but he seems to be in a funk – romantically, workwise, you name it. Andy tries to help, but his interviewing of new employees (in a group fashion)...
