“That truly makes good sense to me.”
From Jim and Pam to Kelly and Ryan, The Workplace has housed a string of onscreen relationships that audiences each cherished and despised.
However there was one proposed couple that by no means obtained to see the sunshine of day: Kevin Malone and Erin Hannon.
Throughout a current episode of his podcast, An Oral Historical past of The Workplace, Brian Baumgartner revealed to Ellie Kemper that he pitched the present’s writers about forming a romantic relationship between his character, Kevin, and Erin.
“Have you learnt that I pitched Kevin and Erin getting collectively?” Brian requested his podcast visitor, Ellie. To which she replied, “I believe that might be a fairly affordable relationship.”
Brian continued, “I went as much as the writers room, and I stated, ‘If Kevin might mature just a bit, there was one thing about their power that I believed was proper. Their energies matched in a bizarre means.’”
And Ellie agreed — “That truly makes good sense to me. I really like that pitch.”
Admittedly, Brian was unhappy followers by no means obtained to “witness the nice love story that Kevin and Erin might have been.” However the present should go on, and it did, by exploring a relationship between her and Andy — a coupling Ellie did not actually perceive.
“I by no means thought [Andy and Erin were a good match],” Ellie added. “I felt like Andy was a bit too infantile.”
“He wasn’t able to maintain Erin. Erin was able to maintain Andy, however I felt that it was uneven in that respect.”
Nicely, until a by-product is within the works, it appears to be like like followers will solely have the ability to think about what a Kevin and Erin pairing would seem like.
