Transcript:Angela Kinsey Interview - Furry Vengeance and The OfficeRebecca Murray from About.com Hollywood Movies at the Los Angeles Premiere of Summit Entertainment's Furry Vengeance.
Angela Kinsey – 'Felder' in Furry VengeanceI haven't seen it yet but I hear you and Ken [Jeong] are the reasons to see this movie.
Angela Kinsey: "Oh my gosh. Well, that's a huge compliment. I think there's a lot of great things in this movie. I have to say I had a blast with Ken Jeong. I mean, we're saying spin-off: Simon Enterprise. They'll wreak havoc on the world somewhere else."
That would be fun. You guys met and were actually on a plane together and worked on the script?
Angela Kinsey: "We met on the plane on the way to film the movie. He was being really animated in the front row talking this guy. I went up to him and I was like, 'You're too loud. Can you keep it down a little? Very inappropriate. You're bothering everyone.' And then we were like fast friends from there."
And you rewrote everything?
Angela Kinsey: "No, we didn't rewrite everything. But we did meet before, and we went through the whole script scene by scene. We improvised a lot. We sort of came up with this whole dynamic between the two of us before we ever met with the director or Brendan, so it was fun."
So how close is what you guys ended up doing on screen to that script?
Angela Kinsey: "You know what? I would say we did the script as it was written, and then we played around the story – but we didn't change the story. But we did improvise quite a bit. And bless his heart, our director, Roger Kumble, was so great at the sort of thing, 'Okay, let's rein it back and try it again.'"
Ken never goes by the script.
Angela Kinsey: "He is kind of a wild man. I say that Ken is the animal I worked with on this film. But he was so much fun. We both have an improv background; there was such a freedom there and a collaboration so it was great."
The Office is one of my favorite TV shows. Can we expect anything big on the season finale?
Angela Kinsey: "Well, I can't say much. I can tell you my character's determined to have Dwight Schrute's baby. Why? I don't know, but she's determined so she's going to be really pushing that contract."
So she's not going to be tearing it up.
Angela Kinsey: "I don't think so."
That's going to be so much fun. I can imagine a little one running around.
Angela Kinsey: "I don't know what Dwight Schrute and Angela Martin, what kind of parents they would be. It's horrifying."
That would be a spin-off all on its own.
