Watch Seth Rogen, Bob Odenkirk, Adam Scott, and More Audition for ‘The Office’ in 2003


Here’s old audition footage of a bunch of famous actors who tried out for parts on The Office back in the fall of 2003 but were passed over. It’s a special feature off the recently-released DVD set for the ninth and final season of the show. It’s pretty cool to see Bob Odenkirk (Michael), Seth Rogen (Dwight), Adam Scott (Jim), Kathryn Hahn (Pam), John Cho (Jim), and Eric Stonestreet (Kevin) play these well-known characters and to think about how differently their careers and the show would have been had they gotten these parts.

Check out a list of other people who auditioned for The Office, including Paul Giamatti, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Martin Short, and Matt Walsh, here and here.
