New girl at The Office – Ellie Kemper

If you are a fan of “The Office” and didn’t see last night’s episodes, warning, there might be spoilers.

ellie-kemperIf you did see last night’s episode, you noticed we have a new receptionist. Yes, Pam quit her job to join the Michael Scott Paper Company. Of course Dunder Mifflen’s Scranton Branch can’t do without a receptionist (or a new love interest for Dwight and Andy) so Kelly “Erin” Hannon, played by Ellie Kemper, has been hired to replace Beasley.

Ellie Kemper has a history in comedy including performing with the Upright Citizens Brigade and writing for the Onion, so she may be more than just a temp. Based on her performance in last night’s episodes, I think she will be a great addition to the cast.
