Let’s face it, working in an office environment can be boring and testing, so finding someone to pass the time with is invaluable. Dwight Schrute and Jim Halpert may have started out as mortal enemies, but as the show went on they slowly grew into the bestest of frenemies.
Dwight and Jim take on the reimagined roles of Gareth Keenan and Tim Canterbury and are collectively one of the main driving forces behind the meteoric rise and success of the Americanised version of The Office. Michael Scott often gets the plaudits but the unsung heroes are truly Jim and Dwight, acting as the glue that holds the rest of the show together.
Beneath the pranks and the insults are the hallmarks of real brotherly love which can be seen to get stronger and stronger as each episode goes by - even if they don’t want to admit it.
Their onscreen chemistry and banter have provided a laugh-a-minute atmosphere, and their constant back and forth has led to some of the most memorable moments across The Office’s acclaimed run.
We all know a Jim and a Dwight at work, but how well do you know the original workplace comedy duo? Do you really know the true stars of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company?
