Can a Task.Run().Wait() task end up being "inlined"?

Is it possible for the following task to be "inlined" and run on the current thread when the t.Wait(); is encountered?
Task t = Task.Run(() => MyMethod());
If so, can you provide some example code that does this?

(I've tried setting ThreadPool.SetMaxThreads(8, 8); (This succeeds. My computer has 8 CPUs.) and then launching a dozen tasks via Task.Run() to try and fill up the ThreadPool so my Task t = Task.Run() gets queued but not run. However, I have not been able to get t.Wait(); to "inline to inline the task. So far it just always waits I assume for a free ThreadPool thread to become available.)
