LOOK, it’s Phil Dunphy from Modern Family on Law & Order

Or, rather, Ty Burrell, back before he was a famous Emmy winner. The website Mental Floss did a great rundown of other “Before they were stars” appearances on Law & Order and its spinoffs, check ‘em out.


‘The Office’ Unseen Auditions (Adam Scott, Seth Rogen and More) 

A lot of people that are now big names auditioned for major roles on “The Office,” and now their screen tests have been released.  See how they all stack up against the American originals: Seth Rogen (as Dwight), Bob Odenkirk (as Michael), Adam Scott (as Jim), Eric Stonestreet (as Kevin), John Cho (as Jim), and Kathryn Hahn as Pam.  

Some of them are completely wrong for the parts (Kathryn Hahn is SO not Pam, but she would have made a GREAT Jan), but others seem like the would have fit right in (particularly Adam Scott and Bob Odenkirk… who actually guest-starred later in the show’s run).
