LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Jenna Fischer, who plays
put-upon receptionist Pam in NBC's "The Office," has joined
Will Ferrell in "Blades of Glory," an ice-skating comedy set to
start production in March.

The DreamWorks project stars Ferrell and Jon Heder
("Napoleon Dynamite") as a pair of skaters who take on a rival
duo, played by "Saturday Night Live" veterans Will Arnett and
Amy Poehler. Fischer is playing Arnett and Poehler's little
sister and Heder's romantic interest.

Fischer appears in the upcoming Universal Pictures horror
movie "Slither."
