Ever since Newt Gingrich returned to prominence a few months ago, people have been mentioning how much Dwight Schrute, the character Rainn Wilson plays on 'The Office,' resembles a young Newt Gingrich. 

As you can see, the resemblance is pretty uncanny.

Earlier this week, Wilson acknowledged this fact by switching the photo on his official Twitter profile to a headshot of Newt Gingrich from when the presidential hopeful was a professor at the University of West Georgia in the '70s.

Could you imagine a President Schrute? Now that would be scary.
