An Office wedding... and Michael Scott talks to the "mafia" - TCA Report

Angela Kinsey shows us accounting on The Office SetOne of the highlights of Friday's press tour day was a visit to the set of The Office. During that visit, various cast members took groups of critics through the entire office set (Angela Kinsey was my group's guide, as you can see in the photo). After the tour, the entire cast, except for the ailing Rainn Wilson, joined creator Greg Daniels in the warehouse to answer our questions.

Executive producer Paul Lieberstein (who also plays Toby) took the bulk of the questions about what's going to go on this season. One tidbit that he readily dropped (probably because it had been published already) was that there's going to be a special event in the fourth episode. Details after the jump.

As you may have heard, Pam and Jim get married, mainly because of Pam's pregnancy. Lieberstein was fairly nonchalant about revealing that fact, mainly because I'm pretty sure the pregnancy was going to be more of a surprise than the marriage, and that they'll likely handle it in the understated manner they've handled the rest of the Jim/Pam relationship.

As Lieberstein struggled to think of storylines he could tell us without spoiling things, Steve Carell would whisper to him "You're doing great," which got big laughs from the crowd.

"Michael's meeting with an Italian-American gentleman the week after Pam and Jim get married," he finally revealed. "They're away on their honeymoon, and the coalition of reason is weak around the office. And it comes to everyone's belief that Michael has just met with the mafia, for insurance money. So it's Michael is dealing with the mafia."

Lieberstein also mentioned that there will be a Dunder Mifflin shareholders' meeting. Daniels then "whispered" to him, "What about that North Korea thing?" knowing he was whispering right into the microphone.

I'll post more pictures from the set visit in the next week or so.
