A.A.R.M. Q&A with David Rogers

David: Casey Dean was just a pal for Andy, a kindred spirit that he could have fun with and share the experience. No scenes of Andy and Casey or Andy and Erin were cut.

diahern: When Jim said he had to break the rules and ask for a favor, whose voice was it that responded to him? Who was credited for the documentary guy’s voice?

David: That was the same voice as the doc director/producer who spoke to Pam and Jim in the beginning of New Guys when they ask why the doc crew is still filming them. That sexy, mysterious, somewhat nasal voice belongs to… me. :)

I had recorded it as temp originally for New Guys and Greg Daniels re-recorded it with his own voice, which seemed fitting, but then he ended up liking mine better and we kept it in. When this line came up in A.A.R.M., he asked me to do it again since I had already been established.

  1. Wow! Great Q&A! Thanks to David for taking the time to carefully answer so many questions, and thanks to Tanster for asking all of them!

  2. John writing a special message in the card without Jenna knowing is a total Jim move….It’s like they really are a unit. I always thought they had a great chemistry together.

  3. Okay, and I’m a mess now after reading about John writing the note to Jenna that made her react like that! Absolutely the best Q & A ever – can we get a special edition box set of all 9 seasons with Dave doing audio commentary for every episode?!

    [ from tanster: i second that! ]

  4. Thank you, David, for answering these questions! So cool to know that you were “the voice”.

    John and Jenna are so freaking awesome. JAM has always reminded my husband and I of our relationship, he says I’m his Pam, but John and Jenna’s friendship is what makes their characters so…magical.

  5. Give it up for Stanley the Manly! LDB is the man for sitting through all the talking heads.

  6. The best Q&A ever! This was fascinating, fun to read and informative. I love how much care and thought and detail are put into these amazing episodes. I’m going to miss this show and all the talented people who work on it. Thank you David Rogers and Office Tally!

  7. Wow, that was amazing! Thank you, Dave Rogers. Incredible insight into the episode and how sweet was it that JK wrote a special note to JF in the card.

  8. Amazing Q&A. It really makes the episode that much better (and it was close to perfect to begin with).

  9. Wow, only John and Jenna know what’s in the card, that’s amazing!! It makes the scene even more potent.

  10. My unanswered question has always been… who is the father of Jan’s baby? It always seemed to me that she had some extra knowledge when she told people she went to the sperm bank. My theory is that Astrid is really Hunter’s, OR… Jan picked out Kevin from the sperm bank donor book.

  11. The information about the card made me happy. It’s like the hug and the “Thank you” was not only between Jim and Pam, but a genuine moment between John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer, which just makes it awesome.

  12. The one unanswered question I still have and don’t really expect to be resolved is whether Kevin is really the biological father of Astrid…

  13. Jan got an anonymous donation from a donor bank. The only way to know if Kevin was the father would be to do a genetic test with him….but why would Jan ever do that?! It wouldn’t make any sense to reveal a father.
