The Dunder Mifflin paper company from NBC’s The Office is now becoming real paper! In a plot that sounds straight out of, well, The Office, NBC has just signed a deal with a major supplies store, in order to give their paper business a kick by producing Dunder Mifflin paper. We’ve also got a photo of Nicolas Cage on the cover of a piece of unusual material (which, considering it’s Cage, isn’t that unusual at all), and news on Bryan Singer‘s new job (hint: it involves a TV show about a big green man who is neither the Incredible Hulk or the Jolly Green Giant).
Catch up below…
- Dunder Mifflin Paper: The Office‘s paper company Dunder Mifflin is branching out, into the real world. NBCUniversal has just signed a deal to license the name of The Office‘s fictional paper company to Quill.com. This was mainly done to help said company’s failing paper business because, well no one’s buying paper anymore. The niche paper will include well-known slogans from this hilarious TV show that will surely make it difficult for hard core fans to resist.
- New Job for Bryan Singer: Director of X-Men and Superman Returns Bryan Singer will be bringing The Munsters to the masses. Singer will direct and executive produce a reboot of the 1960s comedy for NBC.
- Nicolas Cage Textbook: Nicolas Cage isn’t only a movie star, he’s also the face of the study of life. Best Week Ever found a photo of a young Nic Cage in Raising Arizona, along with Holly Hunter and baby Arizona, on the cover of an 8th Grade Biology textbook in Serbia. Check out the rockin’ cover below.
- Abraham Lincoln in Jeans : The next time we see Daniel Day Lewis on the big screen, he will be channeling one of the greats – President Abraham Lincoln. But that won’t be for at least another year. That’s why this story is so great: Twitter user @UVAMichael posted a photo of Daniel Day Lewis in his Lincoln attire. Despite the jeans, the Oscar-winning actor totally looks like Lincoln. Check out the photo below, courtesy of Splash News.
- Brian Williams Gets Interrupted on Live TV: Brian Williams’ show “Nightly News” was interrupted earlier this week, by a fire alarm. Just a few seconds into his first story (about American Airlines’ bankruptcy), a fire alarm went off in the studio. At first, Williams tried to ignore it, but when once he realized the alarm wasn’t shutting down, he told viewers, “You’ll forgive us, we have a fire alarm announcement going on here.” Take a look at the video below, and see how Williams handles the whole situation like a pro.
