Paul Faust made an informal visit to the set of The Office and met the writers. The writers were not satisfied with the actors that had read for the part and called Paul to invite him to audition the day before shooting was scheduled to begin. He frantically filmed an audition, e-mailed it to the writers, and got the part 20 minutes later. The entire process from initial contact to completion of filming took less than 24 hours.
Paul Faust run the real company Disaster Kits Limited.
