“I’m going to Carbondale this afternoon to get a new bulk shredder,” said Pam (Jenna Fischer).
“Finally!” said Kevin (Brian Baumgartner). “That old shredder sucked.”
“It’s a good shredder,” Pam said. “It just kept breaking.”
In a full demonstration of Carell’s skill at bringing humanity to this quirky role, Michael’s eyes reddened as he listened.
“I can’t do this,” Michael said a moment later, addressing the camera that captures the action on the series, which is filmed in a make-believe documentary style.
“All the channels are going to be different there,” he said, choking up at the monumental challenges awaiting him in Colorado. “I’m not going to be able to find my shows.”
Speaking of new beginnings, actress January Jones, who plays housewife Betty Draper on the Emmy-award winning television drama Mad Men, is about to become a single mother, People magazine reported on Thursday.
Jones, 33, is expecting her first baby in the fall. The father’s identity was not disclosed. She broke up with Saturday Night live actor Jason Sudeikis in January, People reported at the time.
Jones has had some practice being pregnant. Her Mad Men character delivered her third child during season 3 in 2009. But her real-life pregnancy means viewers might see even less of Jones when the show returns early next year. She had a low profile last season in the wake of Betty’s divorce from advertising executive Don Draper, played by series star Jon Hamm.
