SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) -- The actors who play Pam, Jim, Dwight and other beloved characters from the popular NBC show "The Office" are bidding farewell to the northeastern Pennsylvania city of Scranton that served as the TV setting for their fictional paper company for nine seasons.
The NBC mockumentary about cubicle-dwellers at the fictional Dunder Mifflin wraps up May 16. And thousands attended a "Wrap Party" in Scranton on Saturday.
Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski and Rainn Wilson rode in classic convertibles and posed for hundreds of photos as fans thronged around them. The stars later took the stage in front of the Lackawanna County courthouse and played a concert as "The Scrantones."
Cast member Paul Lieberstein, who plays Toby, thanked the crowd. "Who gets a parade," he said. "This doesn't happen in real life."
