  1. “Dumb Starbucks” Is the Most Aptly Named Coffee Shop Ever

    At least they're honest.

    Strange things were afoot in L.A. this weekend as a "Dumb Starbucks" opened in the city's Los Feliz neighborhood. No, I don't have anything against Starbucks; this coffee shop is really called Dumb Starbucks. It's not clear whether it's a work of parody or a real coffee shop's marketing ploy, but neither will sit well with Starbucks.

  2. Zach Sobiech, of “Clouds” Viral Video Fame, Loses Battle With Cancer

    In case you haven't had your fill of heartbreaking news this week -- looking at you, Oklahoma tornado -- it's been announced that Zach Sobiech lost his battle with cancer on Monday, May 20th. You may recall him as the young man that went viral late last year with his "Clouds" song, and recently with some help from Rainn Wilson and Soul Pancake. He was 18.

  3. NBC Working on The Office Spin-Off Starring Dwight Schrute

    Deadline reports that NBC is working on a spin-off from The Office featuring resident nutty main character, Dwight Schrute, played by Rainn Wilson, for a potential launch in 2013. With The Office having lost its direction and most of its emotional value even before Steve Carell left the show and took character Michael Scott with him, The Office is still one of NBC's most recognizable shows, so it wouldn't be very surprising to see them try to keep the universe alive in some form another after The Office finally kicks the bucket.

  4. Rainn Wilson’s Dwight Is Getting An Office Spin-Off

    Cautiously Optimistic

    What is going on? What are you doing?! NBC is giving Dwight Schrute his own spin-off from The Office in 2013. Ok, no, we're actually really excited about this, we just wanted to use those quotes. And this one. Bears, beets, and Battlestar Galactica.

  5. Super‘s Rainn Wilson Meets Real-Life Superhero Phoenix Jones

    Together At Last

    While promoting their movie Super, about a man who becomes a real-life superhero, actor Rainn Wilson and director James Gunn were visited by actual real-life superhero Phoenix Jones. The panel took place at Seattle's Emerald City Comic Con, so the city's resident plebian crimefighter thought he'd stop by with fellow crimefighter Pitch Black to compare notes with Wilson.

  6. Super: Rainn Wilson Tells Crime to Shut Up [Video]

    and let it be known

    I say this in a good way: Where do I even begin with this, the trailer for the Rainn Wilson costumed superhero flick, Super? For one thing, his catchphrase is "Shut up, crime!" For another, it has Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, and Nathan Fillion in it. Rainn Wilson has no superpowers, he's just pissed and wants justice. Maybe not even justice, just his dignity. And he has a monkey wrench. Directed by Slither's James Gunn, Super is set to hit screens April 1. (Bleeding Cool)

  7. Kelly Kapoor Says Dwight Schrute Could Be the Next Michael Scott

    As Steve Carrell continues to insist that he's leaving The Office to the point where we all actually are starting to believe it, a front-runner has emerged to take his place: None other than Rainn Wilson, whom you may know better as Dwight Schrute. Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello got this tasty tidbit from one of the show's stars/producers:

    “I’d love to see Rain Wilson in that position,” says co-executive producer/co-star Mindy Kaling, who snagged a much-deserved Emmy nominee for co-writing last season’s four-star Jim/Pam wedding episode. “Dwight has become so nuanced — you actually care about him now. I think if [we did a good job laying the groundwork] this coming season he would be a fantastic boss. “But that’s my dream,” she adds. “It certainly hasn’t been approved by people that are more powerful than me and who make those kind of decisions.”
    Kaling, who plays Kelly Kapoor on The Office, acknowledged that she'd really prefer not to have Carrell leave at all, but if that's the way of things, this is the best of all possible alternatives.
