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.

The shock of 'Two and a Half Men' star Angus T. Jones' religious rant against the series likely won't die down for a good long while, but it seems Hollywood itself has already taken aim at skewering the young actor.  Hilariously, Thursday ratings rival 'The Office' has taken one of the first jabs at Jones, enlisting stars Rainn Wilson and Craig Robinson to re-enact the bizarre video.  Are you ready for 'The Office' to get filthy?
