Here are a couple of lesser-known facts about The Office that you might not have head before:

1. B.J. Novak was the first person to get the role: As many of us know that B.J. Novak is a terrific actor and his previous gig at Saturday Night Live impressed the show's producer Greg Daniels, giving him the opportunity to become the first permanent actor on the show.

2. Seth Rogen was almost on-board: Yes, you read that right. The legendary comedy actor-writer Seth Rogen was in the running to play Rainn Wilson' Dwight Schrute. Not only Seth, but other actors like Breaking Bad star Bob Odenkirk was originally cast as Michael Scott but was later replaced by Steve Carell.

4. Improvisation was the key: The Office has been applauded for its dialogues and immediate comic timing. What very few people know that show's creator Greg Daniels wanted everyone to improvise, so they can give the feel of originality.

5. Inspiration from the British counterpart: Well, Greg Daniels' The Office is officially an adaptation of the 2001-2003 BBC series of the same name. To get close to the story, the writers chose to make the pilot episode pretty similar to the British counterpart. However, when viewers questioned the decision, Daniels and the other writers swiftly moved to tell a different story from season two.

6. The legendary theme song: We won't deny that FRIENDS TV show's theme song is one of the fan-favorite theme songs of all time. But The Office theme song has an audience of its own. What you might not know is that when it came to selecting the opening theme music of the show, series creator Greg Daniels gave the cast four versions of the songs and asked them to vote and finalize.

7. Real systems on the set: Unlike other sitcoms, where we see only fake props being used by the actors, The Office used original machines and systems. For instance, they even had an internet connection active on their computer system that gave the actors a sense that they are actually in a real-world office.

8. You can buy Dunder Mifflin paper: Yes, in 2011 the company announced that they would start selling Dunder Mifflin paper.

" a race to the bottom as paper usage is going down. We're looking for different pop culture phenomena and external brands that we can tie to these mundane product categories to differentiate. That's really how initially pairing copy paper and Dunder Mifflin came about," Quill's director of innovation said in a statement at that time.

9. Steve Carell's improvised kiss: Okay, we won't deny that when Steve Carell kissed Oscar Nunez in season three episode "Gay Witch Hunt," we all had laughter like never before. The kiss, however, was not originally planned as the actors were only supposed to hug, but Steve kept hugging Oscar, and one moment led to another and Steve planted that legendary kiss.
