The Office Cast Recalls Being “Almost Killed” During Filming


In a sequence in which Dwight swerves the office bus into the road, the team initially had the big vehicle rigged, but Jenna explained that it wasn’t authentic enough. The bus was then “detached from the platform and a stuntman climbed aboard,” Jenna wrote. “There were no stunt actors, though. We stayed and were told to keep doing what we were doing. And we left.”

They filmed normally, Jenna recalls, but things changed when the assistant director shouted, “‘Swerve!'”

“Stuntman swerved HARD,” Jenna wrote. “I mean he threw that wheel like Cole Trickle in thunder days. As a result, the entire cast and contents of the bus flew off the side of the party bus! What no one had thought of when they told that stuntman to swerve as hard as he could without overturning the bus was that none of our office furniture, props or decorations were securely attached.”
