the_office_season_5_0011

After nine seasons of The Office, it’s all but impossible to picture anyone but John Krasinski affecting Jim Halpert’s smug mug, or anyone other than Brian Baumgartner sounding out Kevin Malone’s slow drawl. But as star Rainn Wilson reminded the world when he posted the audition sign-in sheet last spring, those choices weren’t always totally obvious.

A recently surfaced featurette shows some of the actors who didn’t make the cut during the audition process, specifically Seth Rogen for the part of Dwight, Bob Odenkirk for Michael, Eric Stonestreet for Kevin, Kathryn Hahn for Pam, and John Cho and Adam Scott for Jim. Check it out after the jump.

Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón are using the big screen this year to explore the expansive blackness of outer space — Abrams with last week’s Star Trek Into Darkness, Cuarón with this fall’s Gravity. For their first collaboration with each other, though, they’ll be keeping things a bit more grounded.
