Back to work! Jenna Fischer got fans talking after she posted a fun photo of herself with two of her Office costars on Thursday, February 18.
“Hey West Coast, sorry I can’t watch You, Me and the Apocalypse live with you tonight but I’m at dinner with these jokers! @angelakinsey #oscarnunez #ymata,” she captioned a snapshot of the three of them together. “Starts in 5 mins Riverside, San Diego, Rialto, Pasadena!” (The Office alum stars in NBC’s absurd comedic drama opposite Rob Lowe.)
In the photo, Fischer, 41, sports a wide grin as she’s sandwiched by Dunder Mifflin’s accounting department, Angela Martin (Angela Kinsey) and Oscar Martinez (Oscar Nunez). Brian Baumgartner, who played Kevin Malone, was absent from the get-together.
The popular NBC comedy, which ended its nine-season run in 2013, has grown a dedicated fan base, and the cast has remained close ever since.
Last September, Fischer reunited with the other women of The Office — Kinsey, Kate Flannery and Ellie Kemper — to re-create a photo they’d taken at her bachelorette party back in 2010.
And on an episode of Watch What Happens Live that aired on January 20, Fischer opened up about her real-life friendship with costar John Krasinski, who played her love interest on the sitcom.
“There is a real part of me that’s Pam and a real part of him that’s Jim,” she explained. “And those parts of us were genuinely in love with one another. But in real life we aren’t totally Pam and totally Jim. So, in real life, we’re not the perfect match.”
In response, Krasinski, 36, said in an interview with The Daily Beast that Fischer’s words were “wildly misquoted or taken out of context.”
“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 on screen — and think we both feel it’s such an honor to be a part of that relationship,” he said. “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.”
