The Office will probably never return, so this new unseen footage from the original NBC sitcom may be your only opportunity to see somewhat “new” shenanigans from the Dunder-Mifflin team. The official YouTube channel of The Office released Michael Scott’s action flick Threat Level Midnight, and you need to watch it right this moment.
The full 25-minute action movie features uncut and unseen version of Michael Scott’s Threat Level Midnight. The concept for the action flick was first introduced in Season 2 when Pam (Jenna Fischer) discovered the incomplete script that was written by Scott (Steve Carell), who said it was a “work in progress.” The office assumed it was a comedy, not a serious spy flick. Then in Season 7, Dunder-Mifflin employees and viewers of the comedy finally got to catch a glimpse of Scott’s James Bond-esque spy film
The riveting plot of Threat Level Midnight features Scott as the hero of course, a masterful spy named Michael Scarn. The covert agent goes undercover as a hockey player to prevent the NHL All-Star Game from being blown up by the film’s villain and Scarn’s archnemesis, Goldenface, played by Jim Halpert (John Krasinski).
But to make an omelet, you have to crack a few eggs, and in Scott’s case, he ends up accidentally killing another hockey player, Oscar Martinez (Oscar Nunez). Assisting Scarn in his super-spy heroics is his robotic butler played by Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson).
The episode from 2011 was written by B.J. Novak and directed by Tucker Gates. Previously the footage could only be seen as a bonus feature on the show’s Season 7 DVD. You can watch Threat Level Midnight in all of its glory and previously-unseen footage below.
