That's what she said: Jan from the Office to be Rays fan for a day

In order to kick-off their their new syndicated runs of the Office, More TV 32 is bring Melora Hardin to Friday night's game versus the Toronto Blue Jays fans. Office fans know Melora as Michael Scott's former boss Jan. Hardin will throw out the first pitch on Friday and sing during the 7th inning stretch.
Just the other day, I saw Hardin in the move "17 Again" (don't hate on me, I have a daughter who loves High School Musical). It made me wonder, just how much work she has done throughout her career. A quick look on imdb shows that Hardin has quite an expansive resume.

Here are some highlights:
As a child actor, she had several guest appearances on shows such as Different Strokes and Love Boat before getting a recurring roll on Little House on the Prairie.

In a role that might have made her a star sooner, Hardin was set to play McFly’s love interest in “Back to the Future” (1985), but was recast because of her height when her co-star to be, Eric Stolz, was let go and Michael J. Fox, who was shorter than Hardin, was given the lead.

In the nineties, she appeared in the movie "The Rocketeer," along with appearances on Quantum Leap, Caroline in the City, and Friends.

In 2004, she began to be seen on the critical fave “Monk,” playing wife to the obsessive compulsive investigator (Tony Shaloub).

Since getting cast in the office, she's appeared in “Thank You for Smoking” (2006), “27 Dresses” (2007) and “17” (2008) with Zac Efron and Matthew Perry.
