Looks like someone at Dunder Mifflin has a bun in the oven!
(And this time, it is not Dwight Schrute [Rainn Wilson] practicing labor with a butter-covered watermelon.)
We uncovered this juicy morsel of pregnancy scoopage while attending last night's Inside The Office event at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, where we also learned the following:
John Krasinski is dreaming of a dream wedding. The return of Amy Ryan is making everyone giddy. Rainn Wilson once had a torrid love affair with Marilyn Manson. (Yes, you read that right!) Still, something tells me it's the pregnancy dirt you really want the skinny on, right? So who could it be? Well, the person who blabbed that secret to us was none other than...
When asked what's in store for the season finale, Phyllis Smith (Phyllis) blushed a little and told us, "I found out something this past week too, but I can't tell you that. It might develop in about nine months or so, so we'll see how it goes."
Nine months? That is not a ham and cheese quiche, my friends! (Mmm...though that does sound delicious.)
Of course, it would make perfect sense for Phyllis to get Knocked Up by her hot biscuit of a refrigerator man, Bob Vance, since we all know they are getting down and dirty. (Who could forget their recent bathroom stall baby-makin' escapade during lunch with Jim and Pam?)
But could "Jam" also be the culprit? Or how about Angela with a big baby daddy mystery on the way?
Here's what the cast told us about the other Office couples...
Will There Be a Jim and Pam Wedding? "I know that we're not breaking up any time soon," jenna fischer (Pam) tells us. "But I don't think there's a wedding coming this season. I'm pretty sure there's not. I think there are some things in store for Pam and Jim that have less to do about their relationship and more to do about their personal pursuits, but they won't affect their relationship. It would be really contrived of us to try and come up with reasons why these soul mates aren't going to make it, because they're really suited for one another. And I think that there'll be some neat, fun things to watch them do as a couple."
Still, Jim himself is hoping for more. "Hopefully we get married," John Krasinski tells us. "Hopefully. If not, why are any of us watching if we don't get married, right? I think it's one of those things where the engagement was so special that we have to make the wedding equally special." Awww...
Will Michael and Holly Reunite? Yes! At least, we'll see them sharing screen time, when Amy Ryan (Holly Flax) returns, and the entire cast is downright thrilled to have Michael's apparent soul mate back on the scene. "I thought Holly was the perfect woman for him," Phyllis says. "She was as dorky as he was really in a cute way. Holly is pretty special." Oscar Nuez seconds that: "Amy's perfect. She's cute with just a little bit of dweeb."
Any Hope for Dwight and Angela? "I imagine in season 14 when the show is called Accounting, Dwight will make a very special guest appearance and carry Angela out of there like in An Officer and a Gentleman," Rainn tells us. In the meantime, he reveals Dwight will go on some dates and that: "The wheels are falling off everything in The Office. The wheels are falling off Dwight; beets are falling off Dwight-things are getting a little out of control."
What About Rainn Wilson's Real-Life Love Life? Speaking of out of control, how about this exchange between Rainn Wilson and our reporter on the red carpet last night:
What question do Office fans ask you the most?
"How much am I like my character?" "Have I ever worked in an office?" "What is Marilyn Manson like?" I don't know why they keep asking that. Apparently I was linked with him romantically. Those are some of the ones I'm sure I'll be asked about tonight.
Were you linked with Marilyn Mason?
Yes, absolutely. We were lovers, yeah.
That's a skeleton from your past.
Yeah, he kept me on a short leash. Literally.
Hmm...I wonder if Rainn's wife knows?
Check out sneak peeks below of tonight's all-new Office episode, where Michael meets his new boss, Idris Elba, who will stick around for six episodes. Then sound off below with your thoughts on who is pregnant and when Jim and Pam will get hitched! (And wait a minute, is that Jim in a tux down there?!)
