This the JAM! Jim Halpert and Pam Beesly Halpert’s alter-egos, John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer of The Office, staged a mini cast reunion the other night, at Krasinski’s off-Broadway production. The actor is currently performing in Dry Powder, with Claire Danes and Hank Azaria.
Fischer came to see the production, which is described as being “…about the price of success and the real cost of getting the deal done.” Krasinski snapped a selfie of himself with Fischer. Check it out, below.
Back in January, Fischer appeared on an episode of Bravo‘s Watch What Happens Live. Talk turned to the wildly popular Jim and Pam relationship that was one of the highlights of NBC‘s The Office. It all got so awkward when Krasinski was later asked about Fischer’s remarks, that this reporter will close her eyes, cover her ears and yell, “La la la, I can’t hear you,” while Zap2It tells the cringe-worthy tale:
It started when Fischer was on “Watch What Happens Live” and said to a caller, “John and I have real chemistry. There’s like a real part of me that is Pam and a real part of him that’s Jim and those parts of us were genuinely in love with one another.”
After “Office” fans went nuts over this revelation, Krasinski gave a kind of awkward comment shooting down the entire sentiment.
“I’m sure she was trying to say something nice about how genuine the acting relationship was, of bringing a relationship that became that popular onscreen — and I think we both feel it’s such an honor to be a part of that relationship. As far as how she was quoted about saying we were ‘genuinely in love,’ I think that was taken wildly out of context and I feel bad for her,” said Krasinski at the time.
Let’s forget about all that and turn our thoughts to something more pleasant.
Still rocking back and forth in the corner? We understand. You need a little more PB&J to cleanse the palate.
All better, now.
