There's no limit to how many times you can rewatch The Office, but sometimes you have to press pause on your binge-watching session to take care of things like eating, sleeping, and going to your own less-entertaining job. For those moments when you don't have access to your Netflix account, you can now have the cast of The Office in Funko Pop! doll form to keep you company.

As ComicBook.com reports, the toy makers at Funko have designed a new line of vinyl figures modeled after your favorite characters from The Office, including Jim, Dwight, and Prison Mike. Many of the dolls include details fans of the show will recognize: Michael Scott is holding his World's Best Boss mug and Kevin is carrying a stockpot of chili. The Jim figurine comes in two different styles: One is his season 5 Halloween costume (a nametag that says "Dave"), and the other is his Facebook Halloween costume from season 6. The latter Jim is the rarer "chase" version and it will be sent to buyers randomly. Dwight, Pam, Darryl, and a Toby vs. Michael two-pack are also included in the line.

There's one more new Office Funko Pop! that isn't available to purchase with the other figures. On August 1, Hot Topic made its exclusive Prison Mike doll available on its Funko online store. This mean-mugging version of Michael Scott sports his signature purple bandana. (Dementor Funko Pop! figures are sold separately.) The product sold out quickly online, but it's also available to buy in person from Hot Topic shops.

The new Office Funko collection is now available to preorder, with a release date set for August 9. You can buy them from Amazon today.

The Office Star Angela Kinsey Would Love to Do a Reunion Special

Whenever a classic TV show is brought back for a revival, it usually splits the fanbase in half. While some people are happy to see their favorite characters return, others are worried about the series coming back in lackluster fashion. And when it comes to the idea of a potential reboot of The Office, the series' cast is just as split.

Steve Carell has been very public about not wanting NBC to bring the show back, but Angela Kinsey is siding with co-stars John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, and Ellie Kemper about welcoming a potential return to Scranton. The 48-year-old actress, who portrayed Angela Martin on the series, recently spoke with PopCulture.com, confirming she’d love to revisit the show.

"I would definitely be up for a reunion," Kinsey said. "I know a few cast members have talked about a special reunion episode to see where everyone is at. I would love that!"

Although many are torn on the idea of bringing The Office back, most fans would certainly be curious enoug to tune in and see what's going on with the Dunder Mifflin crew. Kinsey is no exception, saying, “I would love to know where these people are! I loved the show, I still love the show. I think it really holds up. I'm so thrilled that new audiences are finding it, so I would love that!"

Will it ever happen? It's hard to say. But while we wait to see if any official announcement is made, you can at least still binge The Office on Netflix and try to imagine what creepy thing Cousin Mose is doing these days.

Harry Potter Fans Don’t Want to See the Movies Rebooted, Surprising No One

Although the Harry Potter franchise has one of the most dedicated fan bases in the world, that doesn’t mean fans are ready to see the series rebooted just yet. Yes, that would mean more movies to feed one’s obsession, but the general consensus is that it would be entirely too soon. Don’t believe us? A new poll might just prove it.

ComingSoon.net asked more than 2000 Potterheads if Warner Bros. should reboot the Harry Potter movie series, and a whopping 72 percent said they’re against it. The website also asked fans if reboots were made, how they should be done. Of those polled, 41 percent voted for it to be a direct sequel about Harry’s son, 35 percent voted for a spinoff TV series, 13 percent wanted another Fantastic Beasts spinoff, and a measly 11 percent showed support for a remake of all eight original films.

While it doesn’t look like a reboot will be in the works anytime soon (J.K. Rowling’s representatives just debunked a report about a TV series), that doesn’t mean it’s impossible for the future. Even star Daniel Radcliffe has entertained the idea, saying he believes he won’t be the last Potter portrayal he’ll see in his lifetime. But as long as Rowling and fans are against it, we probably won’t have to worry about it for a while.
