December 26, 2007

Meet Rashida Jones, an actress making a name for herself on NBC’s “The Office”. See her biography, photos and video here.

Rashida Jones plays Karen Filippelli on “The Office”, and rumor has it there may be a real life romance going on between her and John Krasinki. The two were spotted over the holidays together in St. Barts. Could it be more than friendship?

Rashida Jones Biography

As a biography, Rashida Jones was born in Los Angeles, California on February 25, 2976 to media mogul Quincy Jones and his former wife, actress Peggy Lipton. Her age is 31. Jones is not only a recognized actress, but also a model, writer and musician. She currently lives in West Village, Manhattan.

She is biracial and Jewish, but Jones says she never really felt out of place, that is until she got to college.

“[I] didn’t have much cognizance of the fact that I was different. My parents were kind of hippies and I went to a Montessori school [where] everyone had different religions and cultural backgrounds. I had Jewish friends, I had black friends, I had Asian friends. So it didn’t really occur to me that it was odd in any way. The differences, or the way people related to them, didn’t really strike me until college.”

In high school, Jones was voted Most Likely To Succeed. Rashida later attended Harvard University where she studied religion and philosophy. She also performed in the theater and was a member and music director of The Harvard Opportunes, the university’s oldest co-ed a cappella group. Jones graduated in 1997.

Rashida began acting in 1997, and although she had smaller parts in the beginning, she hit it big with a role on “Boston Public”. She hit it bigger on NBC’s “The Office”. Of her character on “The Office” Jones says,

“In a sense I am like Karen, because I truly believe that you are the captain of your own ship and you take risks.”

However, Rashida may not be returning to the comedy’s set next year. She landed a role on Fox’s new series “The Rules of Starting Over” and insiders say she won’t be back at NBC after this year’s season finale.

Rashida has been named to Ask Men’s Top 99 Women list of 2008. Her exact spot on the list will be revealed January 31, 2008. Perhaps her place on the list has something to do with what she would do if she knew the world was ending tomorrow, according to Radar:

“I’d run naked across the Brooklyn Bridge—do something naked—eat an entire cake, spread it all over me naked.”
