Auditions for The Office

Wow! This old video shows a bunch of celebrities auditioning for roles in The Office back in 2003. Can you imagine Seth Rogen as Dwight?!

Also, here's an awesome interview with John Krasinski about his nerve-wracking audition for the part of Jim. He seems so sweet and humble.
P.S. The 101 best written TV series.

Ah, this made my day. An extra bonus is finding out yet another one of my favorite people is from my home state of Massachusetts (alongside Amy Poehler, Louis CK, and Steve Carell). Represent!

As a life-long people pleaser, there's something sort of empowering to think about doing your work with the assumption that it's going to be awful! As if John Krasinski could be any more likable, now he's a guru too?! swoon city.

John Krasinski rules!

Yay! I loved this.

These were both great. I'm re-watching The Office on Netflix, but in England I think we've only got up to series 7. I love both versions of the show and am a little bit addicted to both!

OH i love these. We miss the Office so much - every Friday night it was 'our' thing - after the kids went down we'd watch the previous night's episode and laugh SO HARD. I miss it!!!!! Have to start re-watching it soon!!!

Very cool! I've been watching The Office on Netflix and it's so fun to see what other actors would have been like. Of course I can't imagine the show with anyone different from the real cast!
