Plant growing in potting soil!

I had a bag of potting soil that had been sitting outside for months. Today I opened it up to use it and lo and behold! There was a plant inside of it! I guess filtered sun and moist soil was a kind enough environment for this plant. Is this a common weed or something interesting?

I would say Mullein, Verbascum thapsus.
