Wilson posted a photo on his Facebook page Tuesday (March 19) of the sign-in sheet from the first day of auditions for the show on Nov. 6, 2003. The show's casting director, Allison Jones, kept the document and gave it to Wilson when filming ended last week, he says.
Wilson, who at the time was recurring on HBO's "Six Feet Under," was the first person to audition and signed in as auditioning for either Dwight, the role he'd end up getting, or Michael, eventually played by Steve Carell (who came aboard in early 2004). Others auditioning to play Dwight included Matt Besser ("Walk Hard"), Matt Price ("Men of a Certain Age") and Jarrett Grode ("Undeclared").
Price would end up guesting on »
