Jenna Fischer's summer is pretty much shot to hell

jenna fischerPoor, sweet Jenna Fischer! She broke her back in four places when she took a tumble down some marble stairs a couple of weeks ago and it looks like she'll spend the rest of the summer recovering from her injuries. She recently gave an interview about her accident, and says she felt her feet fly out from underneath her and landed hard on the stairs. She says the pain "was consuming and immediate. I never felt anything like it." She's still in pain, but manages to keep a sunny outlook in the interview (isn't that why we adore her?).

Jenna has slowly been on the mend since the May 14th accident. She has been in a lot of pain and has not been able to travel back home to Los Angeles (she's in NYC). She's been taking slow walks in Central Park to try and heal her back. Jenna says she has received warm wishes from cast members of The Office, and even got some cupcakes from Zach Braff, who happened to be at the party where she fell.

Luckily, Jenna had just wrapped shooting a movie with John C. Reilly where they play a skewed version of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash so it's just her summer vacation, and not her work schedule, that is being interrupted. Jenna has to rest and recover for the next 12 weeks, and then it's right back to the set of The Office. You can send her your well wishes at her MySpace page.

Damn heels! Jenna Fischer breaks her back

by Anna Johns, posted May 16th 2007 6:27PM
jenna fischerApparently Ms. Jenna Fischer had a bit of a tumble involving some high heels and a marble staircase. Whitney over at Pop Candy is reporting that Fischer fell down some stairs on Monday as she was trying to maneuver in very high heels. Jenna broke her back in four places. She was in New York at the time and now is being cared for by her husband, filmmaker James Gunn, and The Office co-star, Angela Kinsey. You can send her a Get Well Soon note at her MySpace page.

The Office has wrapped for the season so her injury won't hamper her role as Pam Beesly, but it's going to be a crappy summer for sweet Jenna.

Ellen's seriously injured, but the show goes on

ellen degeneresEllen DeGeneres is one hell of a trooper. Or she's crazy. You decide.

DeGeneres seriously injured her back over the weekend and is under doctor's orders not to get out of bed. So... she's going to conduct interviews from a hospital bed on her set. Her first guest is Ryan Seacrest and that bedridden interview will air today. She's also expected to explain what happened to her.

Not sure if it's because we're in sweeps, because Ellen loves her show, or because she's trying to outdo the recent Rosie O'Donnell/Elisabeth Hasselbeck news, but she's not letting anything sideline her. Take that, Regis!

*UPDATE: Ellen says she hurt her back while trying to pick up her dog. Isn't it crazy how something so simple can lead to major pain? People has photos of the bed-ridden host.

New episodes of Futurama coming to Comedy Central ... for real!

by Joel Keller, posted Jun 22nd 2006 2:44PM
Futurama trioWe've reported on every single little rumor that's come out about Futurama's return. We've asked Billy West, who couldn't tell us anything definitive one way or the other. But -- finally! -- we have some confirmation that Futurama is indeed coming back.

And we can thank Craig Ferguson for it.

When Katey Sagal visited The Late Late Show the other day, she told Craig that the show is coming back to Comedy Central in 2008 for at least 13 episodes (I was watching that appearance, too. Must have slept through that part). Don Kaplan of the New York Post confirmed this; his sources told him that all the primary voice actors signed new deals this week. Also according to the article, FOX may have the option to air the new episodes, but probably won't. The new episodes will also come out on DVD after they air.

I just have one reaction: Huzzah!

[thanks to Alex of BuzzerBlog for the tip.]

(UPDATE: John DiMaggio (Bender) confrims the story even more below. And yes, it's really him.)
