Interestingly, Paul Giamatti, Martin Short, Bob Odenkirk, and Hank Azaria were all considered for the role of Michael Scott before Steve Carell was cast. Looking back at how well Carell essayed his role while he was a part of the show, most would agree that he was an apt choice. Although, there is no denying the fact that the others names that have been mentioned and were considered are also great comedians and would have probably done as great a job as Carell.
The series has also had several guest directors, including Lost co-creator J. J. Abrams, Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon, both of whom are fans of the series, and filmmakers Harold Ramis, Jason Reitman, and Marc Webb.
