Unexpected, but okay! We were a bit disappointed to learn that 'The Office' star Rainn Wilson wouldn't return to TV as soon as we'd hoped, given that CBS declined to pick up the comic actor's buzzworthy police procedural 'Backstrom,' but it seems FOX has taken a big shot on Wilson with a full series order for the discarded drama.
There can be no stopping 'The Office's May 16 series finale, particularly now that NBC's aborted Dwight Schrute-centric spin-off "The Farm" has come and gone. As such, series star Rainn Wilson has officially begun lining up his post-'Office' (heh) future, taking the role of an unorthodox cop in upcoming CBS drama pilot 'Backstrom.' Will Rainn Wilson's new role be enough to distinguish him from the role of Dwight Schrute? Find out all about 'Backstrom' inside!
