As Dwight K. Schrute on The Office, Rainn Wilson is the comic foil for both Jim (John Karinski) and Michael (Steve Carrell). He sums up his character by saying “That is America, people. Polyester, bad haircuts under florescent lights.” He once exclaimed “Scotland is the Canada of England!”
This comic actor can also be seen in such different films as Juno, The Rocker and My Super Ex-Girlfriend. We loved his voice-over work in Monsters vs. Aliens and his turn as a host on SNL. He founded the new media company Soul Pancake which explores ‘big think’ topics such as spirituality, religion and creativity. We thought Soul Pancake was about Paula Deen’s cooking. It is rumored that he will star in a new MBC comedy called The Farm–which may be a modern re-hash of Green Acres.
