Jenna Fischer, former actress on the hit comedy The Office, has been axed from a new sitcom, "Man With a Plan". Problems arose in the pilot airing when a lack of chemistry between the co-stars was noticed. Who was the other co-star? Matt Leblanc
When CBS previews “Man With a Plan” at its upfront event this afternoon, Jenna Fischer will star opposite Matt LeBlanc. But by the time the show actually debuts this October, the “Office” alum will be nowhere to be found.
Fischer’s role is currently being recast for the comedy’s debut season — a chemistry issue, network entertainment president Glenn Geller finally admitted this morning.
“Look, recasting on pilots happens all the time,” he began, saying the right things when asked.
“She is a phenomenal actress,” Geller continued from the middle of a post-CBS breakfast presentation scrum. “It just wasn’t the right actress for the right role, ultimately, when we saw the pilot.”
That’s when he was pushed on the presumed chemistry issue between her and the former “Friends” star.
Regarding that apparently flawed on-screen relationship, Geller said: “It was fine, we think we can do better in terms of the chemistry between the two of them.”
I have always had a problem with Jenna Fischer. She is a sub-par actress, and honestly there were times in "The Office" that I hated solely because of her. The one thing I will give her, she is super sexy. I don't know how old she is but she looks good for whatever age she's at. Unless she's 24, which is impossible.
When I saw this story I wasn't the least bit surprised. The only on screen chemistry she has ever had was with John Kraisinski. When it comes to those two, Fischer had some puzzling comments, "There's like a part of me that is Pam and a real part of him that's Jim and those parts of us were genuinely in love with one another".
Just a tad bit weird to say when that was the only role you successfully had chemistry in. Her part in "Blades of Glory", was pretty bad despite the scenes she was dressed half naked.
It sucks that she can't get any parts now, because I really love her tits. If a network television executive was to tell me that her boobs would be starring in a sitcom every Wednesday night without a guarantee of exposure, I would still tune in even if she only got three minutes of screen time. And I fucking hate sitcoms, also like I said, I don't really like Jenna Fischer.
The fact that she can no longer get a prominent role has to have something to do with Pam Beasley's love for Jim. I don't want to read into her quote too much, but when you reveal that a character of yours still have a space within you, it seems pretty alarming. Even more alarming when you say that character, inside you (where I should be), is in love with your co-star. Who happens to be married, oh and by the way she is married as well.
But hey, this is Hollywood, where marriages mean less than a network executive's word. Maybe we will see and Jim in a spin-off show, about there life after the office. Or hopefully we will see a sex tape. Either of those would be fine with me, but I would much prefer the latter.
