Rashida Jones Resume: “The Ten,” “Unhitched” (TV), “Chilled in Miami” (upcoming, with Renee Zellweger) Ready for a promotion: “The Office” romance between Jim and Pam may be a crowd favorite, but there’s no denying Jones’ “Call of Duty” — playing Karen Filippelli brought a spark to the series as Jim’s season three co-worker/girlfriend. In fact, her dashing one-season stint on “The Office” already won Jones a sitcom of her own, Fox’s “Unhitched.” Yet the poorly received series may indicate that Jones and “The Office” split too soon. Performance review: Though not a regular on the series anymore, when Jones did a guest shot this season as the regional manager of Dunder-Mifflin’s Utica, N.Y., branch, it was clear Scranton lost a gem. Jones made it all look so effortless. “Turns out it’s a pretty easy gig when your boss isn’t an idiot and your boyfriend’s not in love with somebody else,” said her Filippelli. Is there even a remote chance that Jones is involved in “The Office” spinoff?NBC Universal
