Dwight was played by Rainn Wilson. He was born on Jan. 20, 1966.
Dwight began the series as the office weirdo and ended up as regional manager.
Producers of the show flirted with the idea of giving Dwight his own spinoff called "The Farm." They got as far as shooting a pilot episode, but turned the footage into a regular episode of "The Office" after deciding not to pursue the new series after all.
