Office Spinoff Casting and News


The Office spinoff now has its first castmember; say hello to

Aziz Ansari of MTV's Human Giant (and also recently cast on the next season of Scrubs).


The actual premise of the spinoff still has not been finalized, and it is seeming more and more likely that no characters from the original The Office will actually be leaving the show to go to the spinoff (making it not much of a spinoff at all).


Stay tuned for more updates, as NBC says they will be deciding on a final idea within the next few weeks.


Also, a lingering concern in my mind - is anybody else beginning to get concerned about this show that is being marketed as an Office spinoff, but appears to have no actual connection to The Office? Why announce a spinoff before you even have an idea? This does not bode well for the show's ultimate quality or future, in my opinion...

I doubt this "spin off" will be good but I'm kind of skeptical like that. Frasier was one of the best shows on TV and that was a spin off so who knows maybe we 're going to be in for a pleasant surprise. Fingers crossed eh?

Stargate Atlantis is going extremely well, and I don't know a Stargate SG1 fan that doesn't love Atlantis too. Granted they have characters from SG1, but then I think it works better since they ended SG1, so it has become more of a sequel/continuation, whereas with the Office, if things continue to go well, it's too early for a spinoff.
Seems like NBC trying to milk money where they can (as if they need it...)

Who is going to do the spin off? i heard that someone off the cast of the office is going to be on it, but who? Is it going to be a mockumetary also?
