We all know and love the show, The Office.  The show first premiered in the US on March 24th, 2005.  15 years ago!

But did you know that Steve Carell almost didn’t play Michael Scott.

Yes, there were a few other actors who auditioned for the role.

Louis C.K., Owen Wilson, Dan Akroyd, and Steve Buscemi all auditioned for the role. Could you imagine anyone else playing the role besides Steve Carell?
