During the most recent episode of the “Office Ladies” podcast, “Office” stars Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey talked at-length about the show’s “Frame Toby” episode. That subject inevitably led to the two stars highlighting Michael Scott’s now-iconic scream, which the actresses revealed was partly scripted and partly improvised. “In the script, it just says ‘Michael turns and screams in all caps,'” Fischer revealed. Therefore, everything Michael actually says in the scene was, according to Fischer, “Steve’s interpretation of that script note.” The “Office Ladies” hosts went on to praise Carell’s comedic talents, with Kinsey adding, “How funny was that? You guys, if you read that you scream, I think most of us would just be like, ‘Ahhhh,’ right? But Steve made a meal out of that moment.”
In addition to talking about Carell’s improvisational skills, Kinsey and Fischer also revealed one moment with Paul Lieberstein’s Toby that was ultimately removed from the scene.
