^ Oh gawd. I'm so tired of these homogenized sitcoms about people dating/married/divorced in their 30's. Every year there's at least 3 new pilots rehashing the same experiences about the same type of people. Who green lights this ****? This one looks particularily boring. Anyway rant over...
Rashida Jones, aka Karen Filippelli from The Office, makes the list of TV’s 40 hottest stars who steam up the screen in TV Guide’s “Sexy Issue.”
Co-star Ed Helms (Andy Bernard) sounds off on 31-year-old Rashida Jones:
Rashida Jones and I first met on The Office set. We were in the same situation at the same time — the new kids — and she was an ally right off the bat. I think her character’s appeal stems from being straightforward and honest, but also up for a good joke. In real life, Rashida is like that. She’s very present, quick with a joke and makes people feel comfortable. For someone with her background — being Peggy Lipton and Quick Jones‘ daughter — she’s so accessible and down-to-earth. There’s an inherent graciousness in that; it’s refreshing. One of the things that Rashida and I have in common is that we’re both closet dorks. We both sang in a cappella groups in college. Occasionally, we’ll just sort of break into a cappella renditions of stupid songs just to keep each other amused. To me, anybody who doesn’t mind acting like an *** is admirable.”
