‘Office’ Cast Pranksters On And Off The Set

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The cast of The Office has to watch their back on set – for pranksters.

That’s according to Mindy Kaling, who plays Kelly Kapoor on the show, and is also a staff writer. She says pranks range from “really stupid ones like trying to trip each other,” to more complex schemes.

She explains: “Last year we played a prank on John [Krasinski], and pretended there was a crazed groupie looking for him.”

Although everyone likes to joke around, Kaling says costar B.J. Novak is the biggest prankster and blames his appearance on Punk’d for his new hobby.

Says Kaling: “He’s the biggest prankster out of us all. I love to play pranks too but I’m not as good at it because I always end up giggling – I have a problem laughing during filming too.”

The Office airs Thursdays on NBC.
