Rainn Wilson portrays Dwight Schrute, an eccentric paper salesman whose ego knows no bounds in the NBC comedy series "The Office."

On the big screen, Rainn Wilson starred in Ivan Reitman's comedy, "Super Ex-Girlfriend," alongside Uma Thurman and Luke Wilson, and "Sahara," opposite Matthew McConaughey, Steve Zahn and Penelope Cruz. Wilson also starred as a hippie producer in the acclaimed film, "Baadasssss" and has been seen in other features such as Cameron Crowe's "Almost Famous," Steven Soderbergh's "Full Frontal," "America's Sweethearts," "House of 1,000 Corpses" and "Galaxy Quest."

In addition, Wilson is well known for his recurring role on the television series "Six Feet Under" as Arthur Martin, the odd mortician intern. He has also guest-starred on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," "Monk," and several other series.

Wilson's theater career includes 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," and regionally at the Guthrie Theatre, the Arena Stage and Dallas Theatre Center. He attended the graduate acting program at New York University.

Wilson currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, fiction writer Holiday Reinhorn, and their young son Walter. Wilson has two "loving" pit bulls, Oona and Harper Lee. He enjoys tennis, chess — and loud rock-'n-roll music.
