THE ROCKER

RAINN WILSON (Fish) recently wrapped his fourth season on The Office, the Emmy® and Screen Actors Guild Award® winning series on NBC. Endearing himself to millions, he earned his first Emmy nomination last year in the Supporting Actor category for his portrayal of Dwight Schrute, an eccentric paper salesman whose ego knows no bounds, dreams of being "#2,” and fervently torments his colleagues in his own lovable, pathetic fashion.

It has been said that the continual ratings growth has been in part due to a grassroots effort spawned by the cast's Internet blogs. Wilson, writing as his character Dwight, spends his on-camera work time scripting a hysterical recounting of "Office” events, discussing everything from the inter-office antics to the differences – per Dwight – between men and women. Wilson continues to write the blog at least once a month during the season and it can be viewed through the show's link at www.nbc.com.

Wilson was recently seen in the fantasy family feature The Last Mimzy. In Bob Shaye's resurgent directorial project, Wilson starred as Larry, a science teacher who gets caught up in a fantastical science-fiction ride when two of his students uncover a box of ultra-advanced toys with magical capabilities to bring them into the future. Other film credits include Ivan Reitman's comedy My Super Ex-Girlfriend, Sahara, Baadasssss, Full Frontal, Almost Famous, America's Sweethearts, House of 1,000 Corpses and Galaxy Quest.

Prior to "The Office,” Wilson was best known for his role as Arthur Martin, the pitiable mortician's apprentice on HBO's Emmy Award winning television series "Six Feet Under.” He guest-starred on "CSI,” "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” "Dark Angel,” and "Monk,” and he co-starred in the TV movie "When Billy Beat Bobby.”

Wilson honed his skills on stage. Credits include performances in two Broadway plays, "London Assurance” and "The Tempest.” He has also performed off-Broadway in "The New Bozena,” "Plunge,” "Venus,” "Titus Andronicus,” and "Twelfth Night.” He attended the graduate acting program at New York University.

Wilson currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, fiction-writer Holiday Reinhorn, their young son, Walter, and their two pit bulls, Oona and Harper Lee.
