Bryan Cranston Has Big Screen Ideas For Potential Reboot Of ‘The Office’

Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey’s latest Office Ladies podcast found Bryan Cranston in an expansive mood. The Breaking Bad star floated some ideas for a revival of The Office, but not for television. Cranston wants a full-blown movie.

“Let’s say that there’s not a reboot series, but what if there was a movie?” said Cranston, who directed The Office episode Work Bus in season 9. “Something to where we can see where these people are. These people in the entire cast that we’re curious about. We wondered at the end, where did they go? What did become of them?”

Fischer and Kinsey were all for it. “I would do it,” Kinsey said. “I would do it for my kids, because I think they would think that’s fun.”

“I mean, if [showrunner] Greg [Daniels] did it, because I would trust it. You know?” Fischer said. “As long as Greg is writing it and he’s in charge of it, then I say yes.”

Cranston said he’d have a minor role. “I just want to be an extra in it,” he said. “I would be an extra in it. I would be some guy. I’d be a crossing guard or something like that. Just something.”

Kinsey wanted more. “Maybe you’re like one of Dwight’s hired hands on Schrute Farms,” she said.

Of course, revival talk about The Office has been around since the series ended in 2013.
