Rashida Jones Reveals Whether She’d Work for Michael Scott or Ron Swanson During “Would You Rather”

Spill! Rashida Jones played "Would You Rather" with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show on Monday, Nov. 30, and revealed whether she would prefer to work for The Office's Michael Scott or Parks and Recreation's Ron Swanson.

In the video, Jones is asked a tough first question. "Would you rather have to hear Christmas music every day of your life," one fans asks. "Or have to eat Thanksgiving dinner every day?"

"I have a romantic, deep relationship with stuffing," the actress replies. "Christmas music's fine, but it's limiting."

She also reveals other food preferences during the Q&A. "Coffee needs to be hot or iced," the comedienne, 39, notes. "No in between."

Jones is then asked whether she would rather be employed by Ron Swanson or Michael Scott. "I'm gonna go with… Michael Scott is so sweet and idealistic," she mused thoughtfully, "but Ron Swanson leaves you alone. He's a libertarian, he doesn't care about anybody, so maybe it's better because you have more autonomy."

Jones had roles on both NBC series, beginning with her portrayal of Karen Filippelli on The Office. Karen briefly dated Jim (John Krasinski) on the show, and eventually went on to become the ultimate career woman as the Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin Utica.

In real life, Jones then played Ann Perkins on Amy Poehler's Parks and Rec, which was co-created by the masterminds behind The Office.
