From the Register-Mail:
Former Knox College student Amy Rieckelman will appear on NBCâ€™s â€œThe Officeâ€ tonight.
Rieckelman, a 1997 graduate of Macomb High School who majored in theater at Knox College, moved from Chicago to Los Angeles in October 2007. She works at Chango Coffee and Spaceland, a live music venue.
For Rieckelman, her role on â€œThe Officeâ€ is another step up the ladder to achieving her dream of becoming an actress. Although she doesnâ€™t have an agent yet, Rieckelman is hopeful her role on â€œThe Officeâ€ will make agents notice her.
The episode is the showâ€™s return after the Winter Olympics and will feature the long-awaited birth of Pam and Jimâ€™s baby.
For those who donâ€™t watch â€œThe Office,â€ Pam and Jim are co-workers who, after dancing around each other for four seasons, finally married during an October 2009 episode.
In tonightâ€™s episode, Rieckelman will play the girlfriend of one of â€œThe Officeâ€ co-workers.
Rieckelman landed the part after auditioning for writer and co-executive producer Paul Lieberstein, who plays â€œTobyâ€ on the show, and the episodeâ€™s director, who turned out to be quite a surprise.
â€œI walked in and there was Harold Ramis,â€ Rieckelman said about her audition during a phone interview Wednesday. â€œI was like â€˜I donâ€™t care if I get this role, Iâ€™m on the set of â€˜The Office,â€™ this has been a good day.â€™ â€
