John Krasinski Reveals The Office Scene He Refused to Do that Saved Jim and Pam’s Relationship

Thats the only time I remember putting my foot down.

Would The Office have been the same beloved show if it blew up its central couple, Pam and Jim.Without holding a crystal ball, it’s hard to say, but we have a feeling that’s a hard no for many fans out there. It was definitely a hard no for John Krasinski, at any rate.Would The Office have been the same beloved show if it blew up its central couple Pam and Jim Without holding a crystal ball its hard to say but we have a feeling that’s a hard no for many fans out there. It was definitely a hard no for John Krasinski at any rate.When Pam was on maternity leave in Season 8, her replacement Cathy Lindsey Broad and Jim were in a Florida hotel room together. In the original After Hours script the pair was going to make out. But when Krasinski read that little twist, he went straight to show creator Greg Daniels and said nope.Thats the only time I remember putting my foot down I remember saying things that I never thought I’d say before, like Im not going to shoot it Krasinski recalls to Baumgartner who played Kevin Malone in the series.

There is a threshold with which you can push our audience.They are so dedicated.We have shown such great respect to them.But there’s a moment where if you push them too far, they’ll never come back. And I think that if you show Jim cheating, theyll never come back he explained.Obviously Daniels ultimately agreed with Krasinski since that portion of the scene was scrapped.However Daniels was adamant they needed to come up with a good spicy storyline for the couple and Krasinski was on board with a little drama at least.I said I think we should get borderline separated and I think we can do it and then come back Krasinski says. He was so on board with that.Thats probably why Cathy tried to seduce Jim in that same episode instead but it all ended in disaster when Jim tricked Dwight Rainn Wilson into spraying Cathy for bed bugs. Afterward Jim wound up bunking with Dwight.Cathy wasn’t the only twist The Office threw at PB J shippers towards the end of the series though. Lets not forget Brian the boom guy played by Chris Diamantopoulos, who showed up to comfort Pam when things got rough between her and Jim in the final ninth season.

I feel like that kind of worry was good in terms of the fans engagement. I think they knew what was coming Daniels reveals in the book.They were very comfortable with the show they were getting and I needed to worry them that maybe I was going to give them a bad ending so they were happy when they got a good ending.Baumgartner, who definitely has an inside track on such gossip and even has a whole podcast on it, drops way more than that tidbit in the new book. Like the fact Kristin Wiig originally auditioned for the role of Pam and that this years Sexiest Man Alive Paul Rudd originally advised buddy Steve Carell against starring in the series.I remember, before I auditioned I was talking to Paul Rudd Steve Carell says.Id never seen the original one and he asked what I was up to.This was right after Anchorman.I told him I was going to audition for the American version of The Office and he said Ugh dont do it.Bad bad move.I mean its never going to be as good.Like what everybody was saying.Welcome to Dunder Mifflin The Ultimate Oral History of The Office, which dropped November 16, is based on hundreds of hours of interviews some from Baumgartners An Oral History of The Office podcast with those who helped bring the show to life.
