Angela joins Fox’s ‘The Gabriels’ pilot

Angela will be co-starring in Fox’s Rob Riggle comedy, ‘The Gabriels’. So exciting!

From The Hollywood Reporter:

The Office’s Angela Kinsey has found her follow-up gig.

The actress best known for her role as the uptight accountant Angela on NBC’s The Office, has been tapped to co-star in Fox’s The Gabriels, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The single-camera comedy revolves around an introverted, neurotic Wisconsin family that lives in a community of over-sharers.

Kinsey will play Gail Gabriel, the wife to Ken (Rob Riggle), who is the more mature of the two — but just barely. She’s described as being clueless and off-beat (like her husband) who is trying to build her practice as a therapist and who unwillingly makes her patients feel like crap.

The League’s Justin Hurwitz and The Last Exorcism Part II’s Andrew Gurland will write and executive produce the single-camera comedy from 20th

Television. Tim Meadows, Sarah Sevigny, Brooke Sorenson and River Alexander co-star in the pilot, which has now completed casting.

Repped by UTA, Kritzer Levine and Felker Toczek, Kinsey becomes the latest Office alum to book her next gig ahead of the long-running comedy’s series finale. Ellie Kemper will star in NBC’s comedy pilot Brenda Forever. Co-star Craig Robinson will also star and produce an untitled comedy pilot at NBC with The Office’s Owen Ellickson and Greg Daniels, the latter of whom also has another untitled entry set up at the network with fellow Office EP Robert Padinick. For his part, David Denman will also co-star on CBS’ Beverly Hills Cop.

Angela prepares for the end of ‘The Office’

From Chicago Sun-Times:

Angela Kinsey knows that it won’t be easy to leave her day job. When “The Office” wraps for good after shooting four more episodes, she plans on clutching a big box of Kleenex.

“Just the other day on the set, I walked up to Rainn Wilson to tell him, ‘Hey, I’ve been making a scrapbook of all the seasons for the entire cast.’ I couldn’t even get the word ‘scrapbook’ out of my mouth without bursting into tears. … It was pitiful.”

Messy moments are Kinsey’s thing these days. The Louisiana native is juggling motherhood and future TV projects, inching towards the sitcom’s May 16 finale and plugging a Clorox campaign where people can share messy life moments at bleachitaway.com.

Q.Are you as fussy as Angela on “The Office?”

A. Are you kidding me? I have a 4 1/2 year old. We paint. We do arts and crafts at home. I told her that I love the color green. So, she painted a wall in the living room green when I turned my back. In her defense, it was the wall near her toys, and her heart was in the right place.

Q.Are you anything like your character on the series?

A. I was brought up to start sentences with, “I’m so sorry, but….’ What was great about my character on “The Office” is she would never start a sentence that way. I’m definitely not confrontational in real life either.

Q.Do you have a post-“Office” plan?

A. I’m taking meetings for the new pilot season. Hopefully, something will stick. As a mom, working on TV is great. You have fairly normal hours and you can make it to ballet recitals and have a family life.

Angela and Isabel are making their own Valentines

From People.com:

On Valentine’s Day, men and women all over America will line up to buy cards for the people they love — but Angela Kinsey won’t be one of them.

“My daughter and I are going to make our own Valentines!” The Office star, 41, told PEOPLE. “We’ve got stickers, markers. I love going to Target and hitting the arts and crafts aisle.”

Kinsey, who is currently promoting the Clorox Bleach It Away campaign, says that doing projects with her “artistic and expressive” 4-year-old, Isabelis a constant in her life.

“The other day we made our own Gak with this recipe I got online,” she says. “And on Saturday we did sand art! [Still] Isabel seems to find that her best canvas is her body at the moment, so she’s always painting her legs and feet and arms.”

But come Feb. 14, Kinsey, who filed for divorce from writer Warren Lieberstein in 2010, may have a Valentine other than her daughter.

“I’ve met a nice fellow, so we’ll see if he gets me anything,” she says. “I met him through my family.”

So far, her beau, who owns a camera business, has only spent a little time with her daughter, as Kinsey says they’re taking their relationship “super, super slow.”

“Imagine dating in the Renaissance, and that’s my life,” she says with a laugh. “Here’s my ankle! Isn’t that a sexy ankle? I’m really hoping to maybe [show] a knee — but I don’t know!”

Angela creates holiday box for Oceana

Citrus Lane, a leading subscription box company created by moms to bring the best products for kids to parents everywhere, announces a special edition “Mommy and Me” holiday box curated by its celebrity brand ambassador, Angela Kinsey (NBC’s The Office). The box will benefit Kinsey’s long-standing charity of choice, Oceana, the world’s largest ocean advocacy organization.

“I am beyond excited that the Citrus Lane community has invited me to design my own box!” says Kinsey. “I am so drawn to Citrus Lane’s compassion for bringing parents together to help each other and teach us all about the best products and responsible companies behind them in the vast marketplace. Every month I learn a little more about how to give the best to my family.”

Kinsey’s box is on sale for $45 at www.citruslane.com. Her choices were inspired by her four year old daughter, Isabel, and the times they spend together playing make believe and cooking in the kitchen. Appropriate for preschoolers aged 4-6, the box will include a personal note from Kinsey to Citrus Lane parents, along with a selection of goodies including:

• Tea Set by Green Toys
• Ivy and Bean Paper Doll set by Chronicle Books
• Penguin Cookie Cutter from Oceana with Kinsey’s special recipe for sugar cookies
• Sparkle Hearts Hair and Body Gift Set
• Shreds snack by Plum Organics

“We are grateful to Angela for sharing her favorite products, recipes and inspirations to create this special edition box,” says Mauria Finley, CEO of Citrus Lane. “Angela’s Mommy and Me box is sure to delight girls and their parents, and help them create cozy family time in the middle of all of the holiday hustle and bustle.”

For each purchase, 20% of proceeds will go to Oceana (with a guaranteed $5,000 minimum donation) to support its work to protect the world’s oceans. Growing up in Indonesia, Kinsey had a special connection to the oceans at a young age and a deep love for the sea and its beauty. She partnered with Oceana to do what she can to preserve and restore the ocean so that her daughter can have the same appreciation for the Earth’s water and sea life.

“Oceana thanks both Angela and Citrus Lane for this great holiday gift idea,” says Oceana Vice President Matt Littlejohn. “Angela has been such a wonderful and impactful advocate for Oceana and the oceans – she’s swam in the water with sea turtles, lobbied Congress, hosted major fundraisers, done tons of social media and, as evidenced by this new effort, always looks for opportunities to help Oceana achieve its mission of winning campaigns that help to protect the world’s oceans. We are very lucky and grateful for her support.”

Co-Parenting Daughter Isabel Is The ‘Ultimate Accountability’

Angela Kinsey may play the neurotic cat-loving accountant Angela Martin on The Office, but the real-life working mom is much more fun — and totally focused on her daughter Isabel, 4!

As the show wraps up it’s final season, Angela, who was named celebrity ambassador of subscription box company Citrus Lane, is busier than ever — but makes her days off with her daughter count.

“Whenever you get a day off in the middle of the week as a working mom, you just cherish it,” she told HollyBaby.com exclusively, and added that on her days off, she loves making Isabel breakfast, taking her to school, and visiting with her teachers.

She also credits Citrus Lane with helping her find the best toys, snacks, and products for Isabel, since she doesn’t always have the time herself — and the company sends them right to her doorstep!

But even with her hectic schedule, the actress also said she’s lucky to be able to bring Isabel on set, as her co-stars and crew are very family-friendly — including BFF and fellow mom Jenna Fischer, who welcomed son Weston in September 2011.

“I am so excited that Jenna is a mom now,” Angela said. “Our friendship has just grown and gotten so much deeper.”

Together for the holidays

With the holidays coming up, Angela, who divorced her ex-husband Warren Lieberstein in 2010, is bringing her parents and Isabel over to Warren’s parents house for Thanksgiving — and insists co-parenting is essential for her daughter’s well-being.

“Our daughter is everything to us. She is the ultimate accountability,” she said. “It’s too important to not have it go well, and not work on it in our opinion.”

It sounds like Isabel is lucky to have such loving parents!

Angela and Jenna Fischer are “very emotional” over ‘The Office’ ending

After nine seasons on NBC, The Office is closing — and tears are already flowing.

“We’re already getting very sentimental,” actress Jenna Fischer told Us Weekly at a party Saturday night at Sky Bar in Los Angeles to celebrate her former Office costar Mindy Kaling’s new show, The Mindy Project. “Every episode…”

“Means something to us!” Fischer’s Office colleague Angela Kinsey finished her thought. “Yes, it does,” Fischer, 38, agreed. “We are cherishing every moment, every scene already and we’re only on the fourth episode.”

“Kate [Flannery] and I already cried together,” she added. “We knew it was our last season but we weren’t allowed to say anything, but, when the announcement came down that day, we were all in a scene together … And so it was emotional when we all realized the rest of the world knew too because it made it very real.”

Greg Daniels, executive producer of The Office, announced in a conference call on Tuesday that the show will air its final episode next May.

“But we’re really enjoying ourselves,” Fischer explained of filming the final episode. “Oh my God, a lot of laughter and a lot of tears. I think that will describe the next few weeks of our lives.”

And the actresses have faith that the writers will end the show the best way possible.

“The writers worked very hard and are working very hard to give every single character a very fitting end to the series. And I know a lot of the plans for a lot of the characters and I couldn’t be happier,” Fischer teased to Us. “They have something planned for each person, to really celebrate their characters contribution to the show.”

But they can’t give anything away. Kinsey, 41, explained, “They want it to be a real, real season end where the fans get a really good goodbye, so were all sworn to secrecy.”

Kinsey does hope that the writers will give the show the big ending that it deserves. “If I talk about it too much I get emotional for sure. We’ve become a family for real. We hang out at work, we hang out outside of work,” she told Us. “I think creatively…we want to go out with integrity. We want to protect so much of what our show is about, so you don’t want to brown out …you want to have a great big black out. Like this great big ending moment. I hope we have that, and I hope we can all walk away feeling so good about what we’ve been a part of all these years.”

Angela gets ready for The Gracies

It’s hard to imagine the uptight accountant and cat fanatic Angela Martin from “The Office” being dynamic enough to host an awards show, but the actress who plays her, Angela Kinsey, is more than ready for the gig. The 40-year-old comedic actress will take the helm as host of tonight’s 2012 Gracie Awards Gala in Beverly Hills. Presented by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, the event recognizes women who have been involved in outstanding programming in radio, TV, and digital media and, this year, will recognize ladies including Giada de Laurentiis, Sally Field, Niecy Nash, Rachel Maddow, and Angie Harmon. Kinsey talked to Yahoo! TV about her concerns about hosting the show (teleprompter trouble!), the challenges female comics face, and why “The Office” is better than ever for her Angela alter ego.

Angela fights for fish in DC

Actress Angela Kinsey of “The Office” made her first visit to Capitol Hill this week to campaign on behalf of the environmental non-profit group Oceana. On Monday night she spoke at a reception at the National Aquarium.

Kinsey has previously starred in a PSA for Oceana, focusing on saving sea turtles. But this visit to the nation’s capitol was her bid to convince Congress to pass the Commercial Seafood Consumer Protection Act and two other fishery-related bills.

She is scheduled to meet with a number of politicians, including Democratic Senators Barbara Boxer of California and Steny Hoyer of Maryland.

Kinsey told The Daily Caller about her impressions of her visit and the current administration’s work on seafood issues, saying, “I’ve discovered that to get things moving in Washington D.C., it’s baby steps. And I feel like that’s probably with every administration.”

“You have to do the work,” she said, “you have to get people to rally aroud you, you have to get people to call their congressmen.”

The Commercial Seafood Consumer Protection Act, the International Fisheries Stewardship and Enforcement Act and the Pirate Fishing Elimination Act aim to combat illegal fishing in international waters and promote truth-in-labeling about the species of commercial fish and where they were caught. – Source

Angela makes it home to Archer City

Angela heads back home to Archer City, TX and makes a stop at the 66th Annual Archer City Rodeo:

Being in a small town, you get used to people heading out to bigger and better things without even looking back in their rear-view mirror.  That makes it an even bigger treat when those who have left and made an international name for themselves come back to visit.  But regardless of the reasons people leave, the biggest draw for someone to come home is family, and that’s exactly who Angela Kinsey was visiting when I almost literally bumped into her at the 66th Annual Archer City Rodeo.

The Office’s Angela Kinsey Gets Serious About Sea Turtles

“”I don’t want to live in a world where I could say to my daughter, ‘There used to be turtles that swam in the ocean,'” says actress Angela Kinsey about her involvement in a new series of public service announcements for the nonprofit Oceana. Kinsey, who appears as the uptight cat-loving Angela in The Office, spent much of her childhood in Indonesia. “We didn’t go to the park,” she recalls, “the ocean was my park.” So it makes sense that she would join her friend, actress Rachael Harris, in the Getting Sea Turtles Off the Hook campaign.

After attending an Oceana event with Harris, Angela says, “I got the wake-up call that no one is policing our oceans. I wondered, how can I do anything? What really can I do to make things better? There are some perks to being a celebrity. My job is to be funny once in a while, but it’s my responsibility to make good use of it.” So Kinsey and Harris ended up in the Rivera Maya in Mexico where they were able to swim with green and loggerhead sea turtles.

“I had never been that close to a sea turtle before,” she says with wonder. “I knew that you leave them be. This is their world we’re visiting. It was amazing to watch them. A few were so big and majestic and graceful. They maintain the coral reef where the little fish live, and then the big fish eat the little fish. Everything works together.” She also learned that though sea turtles have been swimming in the world’s oceans for over 100 million years, they are now at risk of extinction due to human actions. Threats to sea turtles include coastal development along nesting beaches, pollution, fishing and climate change.”

Angela and Jenna Fischer both have chatty cats

The workplace environment at fictional Dunder Mifflin set is decidedly feline-friendly. Need proof? The Office stars Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer routinely share water-cooler talk about their cats.

Fischer has long been a public advocate for the animals, and as host of Kitten Rescue’s annual Fur Ball, so it’s no surprise she would be a vocal supporter of all things feline. What you might not know is that her 11-year-old rescue, a gray longhair named Cadillac, is a talker, and so is Kinsey’s rescue kitty, Otter.

“I’ve never had a cat who meows and chatters as much as he does,” Fischer told PEOPLEPets.com at the La Femme International Film Festival Celebrity Gala on Sunday. “He’s a very vocal cat.”

Otter — so named because he “drinks his water off of his paws,” according to Kinsey — has a slightly weirder way of expressing himself, though he’s equally loud. “He’s chatty, but it kind of scares me,” she said. “It sounds like maybe a cat in heat. That’s just him [being] happy.”

Kinsey, who notes that she “only has one cat, and not 15” like her “weird cat lady” character on the show, is one of the select humans who have ever seen Otter in action. He may be a talkative creature, but he also likes to hide.

“He’s a total freak,” she said. “If you see Otter at my house, it’s like seeing a rhino in the wild. You should feel honored, because he only comes out for a few people.” – Source

Angela on Isabel’s ‘Office’ visits

“We just love Angela Kinsey! The sassy Office star, who plays Angela Martin on the hit NBC series, is proud mama to daughter Isabel Ruby, 2, and funny, to boot!

Now filming season 7 of The Office — the last with costar Steve Carell — the actress is also working with Publicolor and Post-It to celebrate the beautification of New York City schools.

Kinsey recently took some time from her busy schedule to chat with PEOPLE Moms & Babies about her daughter and all the experiences they’ve shared this summer.

Moms & Babies: So, how is Isabel?

Angela: She’s such a happy, happy person. She’s a joy of light. She’s chatty and curious and exploring, and I feel like life is way more interesting now because I’m seeing it filtered through her eyes. I don’t know what parenting is like for other people, but she makes me stop and appreciate the smaller things in life.

Every night, she wants to go find the moon. She asks, ‘Mommy, we’ll go find the moon?’ So we go outside, and we look for the moon. She says, ‘Hello moon. Come on down, have a seat, have some water!’ She’s like a hostess to the moon.

In addition to finding the moon, we have to find a star, so we find a star and sing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” to it. Her dad ex-husband Warren Lieberstein and I have been talking to her about sunsets, so on a recent Sunday night, the three of us went and found the sunset. She was really excited. All those moments are so special.”
