Question: There hasn't been any scoop on The Office since early April! Come on, Ausiello! Give us something!
Answer: I tried (and succeeded) to make up for lost time at NBC's upfront Monday, where the entire cast (sans Steve Carell) was in attendance. John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer confirmed my frienemy's report that producers shot two different endings for the season finale, but denied it was because they were waiting to see if Rashida Jones' fall pilot was picked up. Their costar/producer B.J. Novak later backed that up, saying, "We always knew [which ending we were going to use], we just wanted to keep it a secret." He added that the twist ending is indeed a game-changer, and one that revolves around everyone. "Next year's going to be different," he teased, "and you'll see why in the finale."
