What Paul Lieberstein say about Song of Back?

Lieberstein says he has this awful back pain for more than 20 years and he did and went to every people he could to get rid of it. And one day his wife gave him this book and surprisingly his back pain was gone after three days. Then he acknowledges it was not just losing the back pain. There were elements that he needs to believe from buying into it, which he was ignoring in his past days.

He says this was something different a mind-body connection thing, which he always thought was ridiculous. But says we have to believe it and there is really a connection.

The actor added it was a lot about suppressing anger and focus and works on the movie kind of focus too.

How does he feel when his casual entertainment fans only recognized him as Toby?

It’s great says, Paul. He explained Toby was a focused character, no tremendous amount of rage as he needs none, depending on the writer of the episode.  Though he had a sad part he was a very neutral and he believes because of Michael Scott got that whole amount of anger and reactions.
