TV Character of the Day: DWIGHT SCHRUTE

Rainn Wilson as Dwight Schrute


TV Show: The Office which airs on Thursdays at 9pm on NBC.

Actor portraying him: Rainn Wilson

Why we like him: Here are the obvious reasons: He owns a beet farm, is an avid laser tag player, and is handy with a bottle of pepper spray. He also drives an 87 Pontiac Trans AM, listens to Motley Crue before performance reviews, and invented his own currency in the form of the “Schrute Buck”. He’s a great friend to Michael and an even better frenemy to Jim Halpert. However, the REAL reason I love Dwight is because he killed Angela’s cat.

What other show we see him in: I’d love to see Dwight put his surveillance skills to good use in CSI:Miami.
