After nine seasons -- that's a lifetime in network TV terms -- "The Office" has finally filmed its final episode. Several members of the cast, including Rainn Wilson, Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski took to Twitter to commemorate the wrap Saturday.
While Krasinski couldn't help but echo the sentiments of his old boss, Michael Scott (Steve Carell), with a classic Michael-ism, writing, "It was the greatest honor to be a part of this show! Thanks for getting behind it. Yup... That's what she said."
But perhaps the most interesting tweets came from Wilson, who played the dweeb-ish Dwight and whose character was once talked about for a spinoff. (NBC elected not to proceed with the series and the pilot became an episode of "The Office's" final season.)
On Saturday, Wilson tweeted a shot of the empty set. And on Monday, he followed it up with a look at the casting sign-in sheet from the day he originally auditioned to be Dwight. What the sheet reveals is a glimpse of an "Office" that might have been, with actors different from those ultimately cast auditioning for key roles.
Adam Scott, who most NBC comedy fans know as Ben from "Parks and Recreation," auditioned immediately after Wilson for the role of Jim. And Mary Lynn Rajskub, who appeared on several seasons of "24," was up for the role of Pam.
Hamish Linklater, of "The New Adventures of Old Christine," also auditioned for Jim.
The final episode of "The Office," a two-parter, will air May 16.
