The Office Season 9 To Tease The Farm
When I first heard about the planned spinoff to The Office that would follow Dwight Schrute as he worked on his family farm/bed and breakfast – and called The Farm – I really hoped it was just a bad dream and that nobody would seriously consider making such a program. But as time has gone on, talk of this spinoff has not faded away, making Season 9 of The Office, in all likelihood, Rainn Wilson’s last. The pilot is now actively seeking others to join Wilson’s Dwight on The Farm, and I couldn’t be more terrified. If this manages to be picked up, I will have lost a lot of respect for NBC. Just listen to the type of characters they’re looking to have in this show.
The casting intel comes from TVLine. First off is Dwight’s sister, Fannie. She’s an attractive woman from Boston. She fled the Schrute farm for a new life and hasn’t had much to do with her family for years. Now she’s divorced with a son and is brimming with an ironic sense of humor. Well, it looks like we have our straight man, or straight woman in this case. You need to have someone to react to Dwight’s zaniness! Next is Dwight’s brother Jeb, who shares Dwight’s weird hobbies but without the determination and willingness to work hard. His only success is as a pot farmer. Excellent.
Fannie’s son Cameron Whitman is a strange fellow. At only 9-years-old, he is oddly familiar with many countries and cultures, but is being pulled toward his Schrute heritage. His uncles will serve as the next best thing to having a father. Rounding out the cast is Great Uncle Heinrich Manheim, a charming, greedy, and manipulative old man. He has roots as a German National Socialist, which may have forced him to spend time in Argentina following World War II. By the end of the first episode, Heinrich will have vowed to kill Dwight.
I don’t know, guys. After reading these brief descriptions of these characters, do they sound like a bunch you would want to watch every week? I know I wouldn’t.
