Rashida Jones Officially Joins the Infamous Not-Spinoff And hopefully her character won't get treated like crap this time! Word comes from Variety that Jones will be playing a nurse whose boyfriend has "a strange injury" on the new Greg Daniels/Mike Schur series starring Amy Poehler and Aziz Ansari, due out on NBC next year. We know now that the show is not, as previously reported, an Office spinoff (oh, how no one will let anyone forget it!), but since they haven't given the damn thing a name yet, I'm just calling it The Amy Poehler Show from now on because there's only so much I can take, people.

Jones' casting is no surprise, of course, as it's been rumored for quite some time, but it's great to finally have a confirmation. I love Rashida Jones for the work she did on The Office's best season to date ("Pam's...kind of a bitch" are the most satisfying words ever spoken in all five seasons of the show as far as I'm concerned), and as much as I knew it was coming, I hated the way her character, Karen Filippelli, was treated, so I'm glad she'll be getting a fresh start in the Daniels/Schur-verse. Also she was really good in that Foo Fighters video -- a crowning achievement for any actress. What do you think of the casting, Pam-lovers and/or Karen-haters?

And just in case you haven't seen it, the Foo Fighters video below. Because why not a little music?
