Rainn of Terror

In a move that’s sure to reinforce the notion that TV stars transition poorly to the big screen as leads, The Office‘s Rainn Wilson is starring in The Rocker this summer.

It’s disappointing to see an actor who plays such an intense and well-done character as Dwight Schrute reduced to a low-brow slapstick comedy role. Ooooooh…a washed up hair band drummer. Playing in a high school prom. And making a come-back.

I can’t imagine this film will be any good, so I’ll stick to watching Dwight behave like the weirdest paper salesmen imaginable.
