Check out The Office that might have been with a look at the show's audition sign-in sheet

The casting world is full of what-ifs. What if Nick Offerman had played Michael Scott, a role he mentioned auditioning for in an interview with us? Offerman isn’t the only big name and prominent comedy personality who could've ended up on The Office. A photograph of a sign-in sheet for The Office auditions Rainn Wilson posted on his Facebook page provides a fascinating glimpse into an alternate-universe version of The Office populated by the likes of Mary Lynn Rajskub (as Pam), Adam Scott (as Jim), Matt Besser (as Dwight) and the late, great Chicago improvisation legend Jim Zulevic as Michael. Read it, and think, “Huh, maybe Adam Scott would have made for a better Jim after all.”
