Trivia

John Krasinski and B.J. Novak went to high school together. They went to Newton South High School in Newton, Massachusetts, and they both graduated in 1997. They were even on the same little league baseball team.
When John Krasinski (Jim Halpert) got the role of Jim, the first thing he asked the casting director was "did Jenna (Fischer (Pam)) get the role?" Similarly, when Jenna got the job, the first thing she asked the casting director was about John getting the role.
The computers on the Dunder Mifflin office set were wired for the internet. Cast members admitted that when they're in the background of scenes, they were often checking e-mail and surfing the net.
Jenna Fischer (Pam) and Angela Kinsey (Angela) are best friends in real-life.
Steve Carell only watched a few minutes of the British version before permanently stopping such viewing because he did not want to copy Ricky Gervais' performance as the office manager. John Krasinski, on the other hand, was an avid viewer of the original.

The show had to stop production in November 2007 because of a writer's strike. Steve Carell (himself a WGA member) supported the writers, and refused to cross the picket lines, even for non-writing duties. Carell went so far as to call in sick to the network on the first day of the strike, citing a case of "enlarged balls" as the reason he couldn't come in.
Rainn Wilson originally auditioned for the role of Michael Scott before being cast as Dwight Schrute.

Paul Lieberstein's role as Toby Flenderson was meant to be a one-time appearance, since Lieberstein had never acted before, and never actually wanted to because of his quiet, reserved personality. However, NBC President Kevin Reilly saw the episode where Toby appeared and reportedly said "That red-haired guy is terrific, we should see more of him." Toby then became a recurring character, and the cast and crew have repeatedly lavished praise on Lieberstein's acting abilities, and he has allowed the role to expand somewhat while remaining abashed by the attention it's brought to him. Notably, Toby has no or few lines or story presence in any episode that Paul Lieberstein writes or directs.
Bloopers are available on YouTube for almost every season. Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute) finds it especially difficult to maintain character in scenes with Steve Carell (Michael Scott) and John Krasinski (Jim Halpert). On the other hand, Oscar Nuñez (Oscar Martinez) hardly ever breaks character. The few times he does are brought to attention by other cast members in the blooper scenes.

Michael Scott's home address is shown as either 42 Kellum Court (per NBC's Dunder Mifflin website) or 126 Kellum Court (seen on the show). Kellum Court is a real street in Scranton, but house numbers start at 300, because of the city block numbering system. If it existed, the physical location of 42 Kellum Court would be in the rock quarry depicted behind the "Scranton Welcomes You" sign in the opening credits. The quarry is frequently mentioned by Creed throughout the series.

There are some changes in the set between the first season and the subsequent ones. The exterior of the building is completely different in the first season than what's used afterward. Also, the wall in between Michael's office and the conference room (the one, in which Andy punches a hole) is much thinner in the first season. Also, in the first season there is a door to the left of the break room door. Now there is just a door between Creed's desk and Oscar, Kevin, and Angela's island.
