The casting process for the American version of "The Office" brought out some stars who ultimately didn't make the cut.
The video auditions, which are featured on the newly released Season 9 DVD/Blue-Ray set, spanned three months in the fall of 2003.
Included in the audition process was Seth Rogen, who interviewed for the role of Dwight Shrute, which ultimately (and rightfully) went to Rainn Wilson.
Bob Odenkirk interviewed for (Steve Carell's role) Michael Scott. Eric Stonestreet of "Modern Family" interviewed for the role Kevin, while Kathryn Hahn tried out for Pam.
Scott was probably the best of the very brief audition clips.
