UCBT's Zach Woods Promoted to Series Regular on NBC's The Office

'The Office' promotes 'Gabe' to series regular

Who says there's no room for advancement in The Office? Sources confirm to me exclusively that the NBC hitcom has just promoted Zach Woods - a.k.a. Sabre VIP (Very Insecure Person) Gabe - to series regular for season 7.

The way I see it, that's ace news: The actor meshes beautifully with the existing Dunder Mifflin staff - which is to say, incredibly awkwardly. And if we can't have Kathy Bates every week as Jo, he's the next best thing.

CELEBRITY FUNERAL: Sarah Jessica Parker Reviewed in the NY Daily News

Upright Citizens Brigade holds funeral service for Sarah Jessica Parker and her dead career

Sarah Jessica Parker is alive and kicking her Manolos, but her celebrity is a different story.

The lukewarm premiere of Sex and the City 2 has proven what we have all been suspecting of late: the A-list star is dead.

So, performer Mamrie Hart and comedy troupe The Upright Citizens Brigade did what's right and held a funeral service Wednesday to officially bury SJP's once rising star.

'She wasn't Jewish,' said Mario Cantone (played by Brian Berrebbi), 'but her nose was.'

Sadly, Parker's SATC cast members failed to show, presumably too broken up to attend, though there were plenty of other celebrities on hand for the funeral.

Chelsea Handler (Mary Grill) raised a glass to the 45-year-old star and said, 'She was the master of the ballerina formal dress and the extremely tight ponytail.'

She added that SJP showed the world how women can drink in the middle of the week with class.

'When I drink martinis,' Handler said, 'I eat gas station food and punch cops in the face.'

Podiatrist to the stars, Dr. Hilda Kaufman (Katie Schorr), saw the untimely death coming. The cause: a massive bunion cluster. Strappy sandals clomping on meatpacking cobblestones were the accessory to murder.

The first warning sign of foot fatality? Horse face.

A star of screen until the very end, Parker videotaped her will and left her trailer to her SATC cast mates. In between gnawing on carrots and sugar cubes, her UCB alter ego wistfully declared, 'To my husband, I leave my blinders which I wore the whole time you were having the affair. To my brothers and sisters, the Budweiser Clydesdales, I leave my shoes. My horse shoes.'

Architect Heather Tranf (D'Arcy Erokan) designed the Parker memorial. A gigantic bronze statute, it depicts Parker on her stomach, feet in the air, tapping at her Mac as she yaks on the phone. Located at Bleecker and 11th St., it's conveniently close to cupcake mecca Magnolia Bakery. SJP pilgrims will enter the memorial between her legs to be led directly to the underground shopping arcade.
