As was reported on about two weeks ago, Joss Whedon will be directing an episode of the hit NBC comedy The Office.
Jenna Fischer, who plays Pam Beesly on the show, posted on her MySpace account about Whedon’s involvment in the show:
This week we are shooting with hot shot director Joss Whedon! This has been especially exciting for me because I already knew Joss. (He has known my husband for a long time.) Joss has quickly become one of our favorite directors. The crew loves him. He’s a huge fan of the show and therefore gets really into every detail of the show. He watches us even when we are in the background of a scene and compliments our smallest of choices. It’s been a total dream. I’m currently the background of a scene and I can see him hunched over the monitors watching a scene and giggling like a little girl. I’m going to miss him.
The Office airs on NBC Thursday nights at 8:30 p.m.
