Alan Tudyk

  1. Steve Carell,  The Office, TV,  2005-2013.      In the hunt for a US version of Ricky Gervais for the US take on his classic BBC mockumentary series, NBC also looked at, Hank Azaria, Bill Chott, Ben Falcone, Paul Giamatti, Thomas Lennon, Ken Marino,  Bob Odenkirk, Nick Offerman, Martin Short, Paul F Tompkins, Rain Wilson (who became Dwight) and Jim Zulevic.  Carell, a Jon Stewart protégé on The Daily Show, survived as Michael Scott for 138 of the 187 episodes.
  2. Jim Cummings, Christopher Robin, 2018.   After Tudyk, Dustin Hoffman and  Martin Short were heard, the Irish actor won the  Tigger gig. Except, his  rather English voice did not please test audiences.  And so – and, indeed, obviously!– Cummings continued his normal double act (started in 1988)  of vocing Winnie The Pooh and Tigger.
