The Office star Jenna Fischer was left devastated when the producers of U.S. reality show Dancing With The Stars snubbed her bid to hit the dancefloor. The actress felt sure she'd be a perfect fit for the celebrity talent contest and set about contacting show bosses when the first season of The Office became a TV hit in America. She says, "They wouldn't take my call. I had a dance background, I grew up doing ballet... My people called and I tried to use all of my connections and they wouldn't see me, so I was rejected from Dancing With The Stars." And Fischer insists it had nothing to do with producers' fears she'd be too professional. She adds, "I wasn't going to be that good. I was gonna stumble my way through, but it seemed like fun."
