'The Office': Angela Kinsey on her character's pride and loving Dwight

brightcove.createExperiences();Fans of "The Office" have been asking been wondering something for the past couple of episodes: What the heck happened to Angela?In a word, pride happened to her, says Angela Kinsey, who plays the tightly wound accountant on the soon-to-end NBC series. "I think she's a very prideful woman. Pride comes before a fall," Kinsey tells Zap2it in the video up above. "There's a lot about Angela Martin that's relatable to me. She's a very fearful person, so she needs rules and all these things to live by. She has a hard time trusting. But she also has this vanity.

It was hard for her to be really honest about what she really wanted and who she really loved and what that meant."Kinsey also says people shouldn't assume Angela's living situation was that much... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/05/the-office-angela-kinsey-on-her-characters-pride-and-loving-dwight.html

Scranton digs "The Office," and the cast and crew of the soon-to-end NBC comedy about the employees of a fictional local paper company definitely dig the northeastern Pennsylvania city too.That was never more evident than at a parade, wrap party and concert with cast and crew of the long-running series on a warm, sunny Saturday, May 4, in downtown Scranton.

He appears to have gotten his wish.Whether that extra 15 minutes makes room for a much discussed (and possibly nonexistent) Steve Carell cameo remains to be seen."The Office" finale will be preceded by an hour-long... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/05/the-office-series-finale-extended-by-15-minutes.html

'The Office' finale: Steve Carell in after all?

The powers that be at "The Office" have repeatedly insisted that Steve Carell wouldn't return to the show for its series finale. As recently as last week, executive producer Greg Daniels said Carell wouldn't be back.According to one report, though, Daniels' and Carell's denials may have all been a bit of misdirection. TVLine says Carell's Michael Scott has a "cameo" in the May 16 finale. NBC tells Zap2it it has no comment on the story, and Carell's rep tells TVLine there's no cameo.The series finale takes place a few months after the Dunder Mifflin documentary airs, and it includes the employees, "past and present," coming together "for a wedding and a final round of interviews." The "past" part includes announced guest stars Mindy Kaling (Kelly) and B.J.
