The Office Casting Scoop: Meet the Schrutes!

by at . Comments

Ready to meet a couple employees at Schrute Farms?

The Office has announced a pair of casting notes, both of which involve relatives of Dwight's and both of whom will star in a spinoff if NBC chooses to go ahead with one.

Boss in Waiting?

Majandra Delfino (Roswell, State of Georgia) has landed the role of Dwight's sister, Fannie, while Blake Garrett (New Girl, Bridesmaids) will play his nephew, Cameron.

Both will come on board during a special episode of The Office that will introduce viewers to life at the famous family farm.

Dwight and these loved ones (and a still-cast brother named Jeb) will inherit a bed-and-breakfast in the proposed series, with Dwight having to convince his sister and nephew - who have moved to Boston - to join him in the venture.

What do you think? Would you watch a Dwight Schrute spinoff?

The Office Quotes

I wish there was a way to know you're in the good old days before you've actually left them.

Guess what, I have flaws. What are they? Oh, I don't know. I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me... No, don't sue me. That is the opposite of the point that I'm trying to make.
