Actor/comedian Thomas Middleditch (The Campaign) is set to co-star opposite Rainn Wilson and Majandra Delfino in The Office spinoff project, which will be introduced in an episode of the veteran NBC comedy’s upcoming final season. Titled The Farm, the spinoff has Dwight (Wilson) living at the Schrute family beet farm and bed & breakfast. Middleditch will play his easygoing 30something brother, Jeb Schrute, who hasn’t done well in any previous career paths he’s taken – worm breeder and Bigfoot hunter among them — but has found some success with a pot farm and has made an exercise video about things you can do with a knife and a canoe. Delfino plays their sister Fannie. The Farm was conceived by Wilson and former Office executive producer/showrunner Paul Lieberstein.
