Star Trek XI producer JJ Abrams remains coy about whether or not he will direct the next Trek feature, but he has committed to do some directing in 2007. Abrams is already slated to direct an episode of his hit series Lost this season and according to TV Guide will also direct an episode of the NBC comedy ‘The Office’ in January. TV Guide reports that Abrams is a big fan of the show. TrekMovie.com can confirm this, in fact we got him on tape saying so during our recent interview with him.
The subject of ‘The Office’ came up briefly when another reporter asked JJ what other shows he liked. Abrams said "The Office, I am obsessed with The Office".
Here is that ‘deleted scene’.
