Two Cents & Five Questions With...

... Melora Hardin, Actress.

Melora Hardin is currently seen by many as "Jan Levinson" on NBC's hit comedy "The Office".

Melora is also a director of film and stage. She has had large roles on shows such as "Monk" and the television version of "Dirty Dancing" and has had guest roles on such hits as "Family Guy", "Friends", "CSI" and "Gilmore Girls".

Recently she was kind enough to spend some time with us and give us her Two Cents and Five Answers. So, in salute to tonight's Office Marathon on NBC (hosted by "Toby"), here we go!

Two Cents: Do you have any favorite fun websites you visit? And what fun websites do you think your Character would visit?
Melora Hardin: Off the top of my head Shutterfly! I think Jan would be a closet MySpace user!

TC: What is the most embarrassing 'fad' you completely bought in to?
MH: Cuffing my jeans.

TC: What is the best part of your job that many people don't know about and what part of your job is the least glamorous?
MH: How much I laugh! Memorizing my lines.

TC: What new projects do you have coming up?
MH: I am finishing a movie ["You"] that I directed and starred in. My husband wrote it and my mother, father and two daughters are in it along with a ton of our friends.

TC: If someone were to climb off a desert island and only have time to watch five movies to learn what American cinema is all about, what five movies would you show them?
MH: Life is Beautiful, The Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, Mary Poppins, Superman the old one!

An enormous amount of thanks to Melora Hardin for spending some time with us! Everyone check out "The Office" on NBC on Thursday nights, and look for "You" in theaters in the near future.
