The Office: Casting for Michael's Girlfriend

at . Comments

As loyal fans of The Office, we're big fans of Holly and would like nothing more than to see this adorable character end up with Michael.

But, let's face, she appears to have moved on. Therefore, it's refreshing to see that Michael may soon be doing the same.

“Michael is going to meet someone,” said producer/writer/portrayer of Toby, Paul Lieberstein. “It’s one of these set-ups where a bunch of people go out and you don’t know you’re being set up.”

So, what happens when Michael discovers what’s going on? Lieberstein told Entertainment Weekly: “He kind of flips out and goes into ‘date mode.' And it goes in a weird direction from there.”

The love interest will debut this spring, as casting will soon get underway.

As for Holly, might she end up with Michael in the end? Lieberstein would simply say: "I’d love to see her back.”

He isn't alone. Until then, remember to catch up on your favorite The Office quotes every week at TV Fanatic.

The Office Quotes

Dwight: What is my perfect crime? I break into Tiffany's at midnight. Do I go for the vault? No, I go for the chandelier. It's priceless. As I'm taking it down, a woman catches me. She tells me to stop. It's her father's business. She's Tiffany. I say no. We make love all night. In the morning the cops come and I escape in one of their uniforms. I tell her to meet me in Mexico but I go to Canada. I don't trust her. Besides, I like the cold. Thirty years later, I get a postcard. I have a son and he's the chief of police. This is where the story gets interesting: I tell Tiffany to meet me in Paris, by the Trocadero. She's been waiting for me all these years; she's never taken another lover. I don't care, I don't show up. I go to Berlin. That's where I stashed the chandelier.

Guess what, I have flaws. What are they? Oh, I don't know. I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me... No, don't sue me. That is the opposite of the point that I'm trying to make.
