UCBT's Thomas Middleditch Cast As Dwight's Brother In Office SpinoffMar 30, 2015
The Office spinoff casts Dwight's brother
The Schrute family continues to grow in anticipation of a possible Office spinoff.
The latest addition to the clan in The Farm -- the working title for the spinoff -- is Thomas Middleditch, who will play Dwight's (Rainn Wilson) younger brother Jeb. As described, he's very different from Dwight -- he has engaged in all kinds of odd and unsuccessful ventures, including worm farming and sasquatch hunting and, when audiences meet him, runs a pot farm in California.
He joins Majandra Delfino and Blake Garrett in the cast of the spinoff, which will air as an episode of The Office this season.
Middleditch is a member of the Upright Citizens Brigade comedy troupe and can currently be seen in The Campaign. He's also guest-starred on The League for FX and has a role in Josh Schwartz's upcoming movie Fun Size.
