“The Office”: Mindy Kaling makes the scene in Scranton

Officekaling2_2

The Office star/scribe/co-exec producer Mindy Kaling appeared to be having a good time Saturday in her daylong photo-op in Scranton, Penn. to promote the release of two “Office” themed games, The Office DVD Board Game and The Office Trivia Game. The day’s events include a trivia contest, a beet eating contest, a 2K run and “Office” character look-alike contest.

Hanging with Scranton-icity pols and radio DJs at the local Mall at Steamtown probably wouldn’t be Kaling’s first choice of things to do on a summer Saturday. But it was all in service for the show (and NBC Universal’s merchandising biz), and the money raised from the events went to a worthy Scranton-based cause, United Neighborhood Centers of Northeastern Pennsylvania. Kaling even seemed to be a good sport about the beet-eating contest.
