Watch John Cho, Seth Rogen, and More Audition For The Office [VIDEO]

How different would The Office be if John Cho (a.k.a. Hikaru Sulu from J.J. AbramsStar Trek) was Jim? What if Seth Rogen was Dwight?

Well, now you can find out!

Lost audition tapes featuring these actors and more, including Adam Scott, Bob Odenkirk, and Katheryn Hahn, paint a very different picture of what the show could have been. Now that all of the actors are so closely tied to their respective characters, it’s hard to imagine anyone else playing them!

Woman Recreates Adventure Time, Mad Men, Arrested Development Openings For Her Husband [VIDEO]

When I heard the description of what this video would be, it sounded cool. “Thought you might be interested in a project I made for my husband for his birthday, a collection of re-created television show intros based on his life, friends, and interests,” Leigh Lahav wrote to us. And then I actually watched. I’m now giving Leigh a standing ovation and I hope her husband Oren gave her a big kiss. Watch as Leigh injects herself, her husband, and his entire life into the television openings of Adventure Time, The Office, and tons more.

Mindy Kaling Shares the Very Human Emotions She Felt When Her Pilot Was Picked Up For Series

First, we have great news concerning Mindy Kaling‘s pilot that she filmed for Fox — it was picked up for series, and that series also has a title: The Mindy Project! (Exclamation point ours.) The announcement came during this week’s TV upfronts, and the newly-minted sitcom showrunner kept a diary at Vulture for the duration. Her journey began in Boston at her childhood home and ends in New York, but not before a layover in the Land of Tears of Joy.

Mindy Kaling Is Shooting a Pilot for Fox, Will Leave The Office If It’s Picked Up

NBC may be losing one of its brightest comedy stars — and it looks like it’s their own darn fault, too! Mindy Kaling, author and star of The Office, has been shopping around a script for a sitcom pilot about a “Bridget Jones-type doctor.” And NBC wasn’t interested. (Really? Um, okay then!) However, Fox thought it would be a good idea to hop on the Kaling train — probably sensing the success of other comedies featuring quirky female characters, like The New Girl with Zooey Deschanel — and picked up the pilot. Should it go to series, NBC will have to wave goodbye to Kelly Kapoor. Their loss!
