The Office will live on as one of the funniest sitcoms to ever be on TV. It won the hearts of countless fans and revolutionized the format of television comedies forever. This casting video from when the show was being developed proves that producers made the right call on who they chose to cast in the roles from the iconic NBC comedy.
They absolutely nailed it. 100%.
This star studded casting video features all kinds of famous comedic actors, from Seth Rogen to Adam Scott to Kathryn Hahn. While those actors would have probably done a good job in their roles, you have to admit that the creators of The Office pretty much nailed it.
The only person that we think maybe could have gotten a part was Bob Odenkirk. Don’t get us wrong, Steve Carrell was a perfect choice to play Michael Scott. Despite that, Odenkirk definitely had similar weasily vibes to Carrell in this casting video. Saul Goodman, who Odenkirk went on to play in the Breaking Bad series, is basically the same person as Michael Scott when you think about it.
In any case, what’s done is done. The Office is pretty much a perfect TV show. It’s still kind of fun to think about how the roles would have been different with different stars. Who knows? Maybe NBC will reboot the show at some point in the future.
We all know how much Hollywood loves its reboots.
