Matt Jones Joins Cast of Rumored Office Spinoff

at . Comments

Matt Jones is definitely headed to The Office. But will he work on The Farm?

The actor, best known for playing Jesse's pal Badger on Breaking Bad, has been cast as Dwight Schrute's cousin Zeke, one of that Dunder Mifflin employee's family members who will work with him on the rumored NBC spinoff.

While NBC is yet to confirm the spinoff, The Office viewers will definitely meet Zeke; Dwight's brother Jeb (Thomas Middleditch); and his sister (Majandra Delfino) and his nephew (Blake Garrett) on an early Season 9 episode.

If the network does pick up this Schrute-based sitcom - which would center on the family taking over a bed and breakfast - Jones, Middleditch, Delfino and Garrett would all be series regulars.

The Office Quotes

Dwight: What is my perfect crime? I break into Tiffany's at midnight. Do I go for the vault? No, I go for the chandelier. It's priceless. As I'm taking it down, a woman catches me. She tells me to stop. It's her father's business. She's Tiffany. I say no. We make love all night. In the morning the cops come and I escape in one of their uniforms. I tell her to meet me in Mexico but I go to Canada. I don't trust her. Besides, I like the cold. Thirty years later, I get a postcard. I have a son and he's the chief of police. This is where the story gets interesting: I tell Tiffany to meet me in Paris, by the Trocadero. She's been waiting for me all these years; she's never taken another lover. I don't care, I don't show up. I go to Berlin. That's where I stashed the chandelier.

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.
