Expecting: Anna plays a pregnant girlfriend in the upcoming film

In the film, the 34-year-old Office alum stars as an aspiring NYC artist who takes his girlfriend, played by Anna, to his Middle America hometown the day before his mother’s brain surgery.

There, he must navigate the topsy turvy life he left behind, as his dysfunctional family, high school friends, dad (Jenkins), and ex-girlfriend suddenly reappear in his life ahead of the operation.

Last Friday, Anna tweeted an image of her and John seated in what may be the waiting room of a doctor’s office, gazing a bit apprehensively at each other.
