‘Office’ locks up

After more than eight years and nine seasons, fans of the popular NBC mockumentary “The Office” bid farewell to Dunder Mifflin in a one-hour series finale. 

The show brought actors Steve Carell (Michael Scott), Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute), John Krasinski (Jim Halpert), Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesley) and Mindy Kaling (Kelly Kapoor) into the limelight. In fact, Kaling got her own show, “The Mindy Project,” on FOX.
