As part of the DVD release for the final season of The Office, they’ve released some of the audition tapes for the pilot, filled with recognizable comedy faces. I knew of a few of these before, like that Adam Scott came in for Jim, but I had no idea that Seth Rogen auditioned for Dwight, Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet could have been Kevin, or John Cho might have been Jim. Really crazy to see.
Rogen would have been a pretty terribly Dwight, according to this, as he really just don’t have the weirdo personality required for it. I can see Scott or even Cho as Jim, and Stonestreet as Kevin would have been pretty hilarious. I’m actually surprised he didn’t get it.
Watch it above, and wonder what could have been.
