The gamble worked and after a shaky first season, "The Office" soon rocketed to NBC's number one show. And the "The Office" quickly turned Fischer into a star. She is most widely known for her Emmy-nominated portrayal of The Office, and has also appeared in several films, including Blades of Glory, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, The Promotion, and Hall Pass.
