Five seasons after fans of “The Office” first learned about Michael Scott’s secret screenplay, “Threat Level Midnight,” the absurd action flick finally became a reality — well, a reality within a sitcom.
"After three years of writing, one year of shooting, four years of reshooting and two years of editing, I have finally completed my movie, 'Threat Level Midnight,'” Michael, who stars as the lead agent Michael Scarn in the story-within-a story, explained to the camera.
All of the water-cooler regulars made appearances, including some who haven't been seen on the show in some time. (Hey Roy, Toby, and Michael’s old condo!)
For a movie meant to be awful, “Threat Level Midnight” wasn’t half-bad compared to some action thrillers.
