I'm an enormous fan of The Office, which is probably the finest sitcom on TV right now. It's perfectly cast, right down to the tiniest roles. And when they don't take the character too broad, Rainn Wilson's Dwight Schrute is one of the best characters on the air. (This clip of Dwight contains one of the biggest laughs I got from the boob tube last year). It seems you can't turn around these days without seeing the Office gang on the big screen. Jenna Fischer is in theaters now with Blades of Glory. Steve Carell will be Evan Almighty this summer. Wilson just starred in The Last Mimzy, and today brings the announcement of a new comedy called Girlfriend Experience. In it, Wilson will play "a lonely geek who, in an effort to make himself seem more desirable, hires a prostitute to pretend she's his girlfriend."

Wilson came up with the idea, which has to have been done before at some point, right? He hired Mark and Brian Gunn to write the script after reading Juvie -- written for Michael Scott himself, Steve Carell -- about a man sentenced to a youth prison. The Gunns also wrote the upcoming Mighty Mouse film. You'd think Wilson would be nervous about that title after the absolutely disastrous My Super Ex-Girlfriend, which was among the worst movies I saw last year. Hopefully he'll have better luck with this new Girlfriend. Wilson also just completed work on Juno, a teen pregnancy comedy starring Ellen Page, Jennifer Garner, and my beloved Arrested Development combo Jason Bateman and Michael Cera. Juno is director Jason Reitman's follow-up to Thank You for Smoking. The two must have hit it off, because Wilson is currently working on a script for Reitman to direct. Let it Rainn!
