After 8 years and 9 seasons, the series finale of The Office is just one day away. As if we weren't upset enough that our beloved Dunder Mifflin family is saying their final goodbyes tomorrow, NBC has just released this cast farewell video. When I finish crying, I can tell you all about it.
The 10-minute long video features cast members, Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute), Jenna Fischer (Pam Beesley) and John Krasinski (Jim Halpert). At one point or another in the video, all three cast members shed tears. Yes, John Krasinski cried real tears on camera and I simultaneously cried with him.
Jenna, who plays one half of the 'Jam' duo with John, describes how she first learned she got the part of Pam saying, "the first question I asked was, 'Is John Krasinski going to play Jim?'" Jenna explains, "the role of Pam couldn't be done unless I had the right partner, and during the audition I knew that he was my teammate."
John tells us that unbeknownst to him, he was sitting across from Executive Producer, Greg Daniels, after his audition when he says to him, "what I'm really nervous for is the people making the show." After Greg had introduced himself, John says he "threw-up in my mouth a little bit."
Leaving the show has clearly been a difficult goodbye for the entire cast. Jenna says, "I hope that I never have to work at this location again under different circumstances," she says tearfully, "I hope that in my memory, when I drive down this road, our buildings are here and our set is here. I never want to come here and walk through that stage door and see anything else because that way it will always be there."
"Goodbye Office. Goodbye cast. I love you guys, truly, love you." Rainn says as he gives a tearful wave goodbye to the camera. Have you stopped crying yet? Because I haven't. How amazing is this video? It's so amazing to see these guys as devoted to their characters as we were.
Did you catch Steve Carell snippets in there? We're thinking all signs point to his definite return for the finale. It just wouldn't be right if Michael wasn't a part of it.
