"The Office" may be over, but that doesn't necessarily mean we have to stop talking about it. This week, a video surfaced of unseen audition tapes for "The Office" featuring actors and actresses we already know that didn't get the parts. Seth Rogen auditions for the role of Dwight; Bob Odenkirk auditions for Michael; Eric Stonestreet auditions for Kevin; Kathryn Hahn for Pam; John Cho as Jim; and Adam Scott, also as Jim.
Interestingly, we kind of saw Bob Odenkirk as a Michael Scott-type character in the final season of "The Office" and he was amazing. (At least I thought so.) But who was cast in the roles would undoubtedly have also changed who the characters became, since the actors and characters often influence one another.
Favorite pick from this handful of auditions? I like John Cho as Jim.
This week, we're talking about how Spock meets Spock (part deux), John Krasinski is the next Katy Perry, and we buy boxes of tissues in order to prepare for "The Office" series finale.
Star Trek early release
"Star Trek Into Darkness" was originally supposed to be released Friday, May 17. But trekkies are getting so antsy that the movie release has been moved up one day. According to Paramount, the Wednesday evening IMAX showings are already sold out, so movie execs wanted to give fans a chance to see the film even if they weren’t able to nab tickets. Plus, with movies like "Iron Man 3" and "The Great Gatsby" opening early overseas, they figured: why not? Personally, I’m pretty excited to see the film. I still love that they found a way to write Leonard Nimoy (original Spock) into the first movie to appear alongside Zachary Quinto (new Spock), even if it was a little hokey. But others seem to dig it, too, as evidenced by the latest Audi commercial (above)!
