Jenna Fischer is breaking free — in more ways than one.
"The Office" darling is about to bring her own spin to the small-town widow in the upcoming dramedy, "A Little Help."
Directed by "King of Queens" creator, Michael J. Weithorn, the indie flick stars Fischer as a widow adjusting to single motherhood after her philandering husband (Chris O'Donnell) unexpectedly dies — not that he was a great loss anyway. In the midst of struggling to help her (somewhat challenging) son cope, Fischer reconnects with her high school flame (Rob Benedict)—which would be great, if he weren't her sister's husband.
That's when things start to get complicated.
While the overall tone errs on the side of sugary-sweet, Fischer brings some spice to the role. This is a far cry from the doe-eyed and ever-earnest Pam.
When her son tells her, "You suck!" she replies, "You suck!" We can almost hear the parents in the audience cheering.
But don't take our word for it, check out the trailer for yourself, courtesy of Movie Line, and see how a little sass can go a long way.
