The Office Welcomes Back Cousin Mose, Dead or Alive
As the The Office spinoff comes closer and closer to being a reality, we can all take a little bit of comfort knowing Mike Schur, showrunner of Parks and Recreation and occasional actor, would rather see his character of Cousin Mose dead then live on to appear in The Farm. That seems a little harsh, though I can hardly blame him. The Farm has never been an idea that intrigues me and I would hardly think Schur would be interested in continuing his Mose character beyond The Office. Still, why would he want to kill him off? Does he really dislike the idea of the spinoff that much?
The truth is actually less than dark than that. Schur spoke with TVLine, explaining that while he will return to The Office one last time, he hopes that Mose will die – the idea being the pilot for The Farm would revolve around Mose’s funeral – simply because he doesn’t like acting. “If Mose was in a horrible tractor accident, and he was chopped up into little pieces so that there was no way he could come back… I’d be really psyched,” Schur said, painting a very colorful picture for us. If I were in his shoes I would not want to be bothered by having to appear in Rainn Wilson’s spinoff. He has quite a lot on his table as head writer of Parks. To have to also play a character on another show would not be an ideal situation, especially if you’re not much of an actor. Apparently he laughs constantly whenever he actually has to say a line.
The way Schur tells it, Mose’s reappearances have been due to former Office showrunner Paul Lieberstein’s insistence on torturing Schur. Personally, I hope he gets his wish and Mose dies a tragic death. When the day to air The Farm’s pilot finally comes, we’ll be introduced to more than enough of Dwight Schrute’s family to make up for Schur’s absence, including his sister Fannie (Majandra Delfino), brother Jeb (Thomas Middleditch), cousin Zeke (Matt Jones) and a couple others.
