    Adam Scott Could Have Been Jim On "The Office"

    Rainn Wilson, aka Dwight Schrute, uploaded this sign-in sheet from the auditions for The Office. We know who ended up with the roles, but look who else was in the running.

    This is the audition sign-in sheet from November 2003:

    From Rainn's Facebook:

    This is the original sign-in sheet for the first day of casting for The Office given to me by Allison Jones, our incredible casting agent. I was the very first person to audition for the series, 11/06/03. Notice all the amazing talent on the sheet, including the amazing #13! This is perhaps the greatest Office keepsake I have. So grateful for the best job I will ever have.

    For the part of Jim: Adam Scott

    For the part of Dwight: Matt Besser

    For the part of Pam: Mary Lynn Rajskub

    I used to confuse these two actresses all the time anyway. Weird.

    For the part of Michael: Ben Falcone

    Now, of course, we can't imagine anyone else doing the job.
