Women Of The ‘The Office’ Want To See, Hear More From Jan

BURBANK, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Melora Hardin returns as hard-as-nails female executive Jan Levinson on tonight’s season premiere of the NBC sitcom The Office, but she wants to do even more with the character.

Hardin says it’s time for Jan to show she’s more than just a straight woman stickler to Emmy winner Steve Carell’s clueless boss – and she wants to do that with music.

In real life, Hardin is a professionally trained singer and even has an idea how to work it in the plot of an upcoming episode.

Hardin hints that the character portrayed by Phyllis Smith may be involved in a wedding and Smith thinks “Jan” should sing at the ceremony.

As Hardin puts it, “It would be so funny for Jan to have both this beautiful voice and bad-ass personality.”

But, she adds: “We haven’t really pitched that one to the writers yet.”
