Video: Interview With Rainn Wilson

Hesher's Rainn Wilson on Getting Serious, the Future of The Office, and Being a Dad

Rainn Wilson is best-known for his role as Dwight Schrute on The Office, but he gets a chance to show off his range as a dramatic actor in his latest movie. In Hesher, which is out in selected theaters Friday, Rainn portrays a pill-popping, recently widowed dad whose grieving is interrupted by a strange visitor, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Rainn said that, while he hasn't experienced a similar level of loss in his own life, being a father to his young son, Walter, definitely informed his work. The actor also chatted about Steve Carrel's recent exit from The Office and what it means for the future of the show before telling us what it was like to have Natalie Portman as a producer. Watch our talk with Rainn, as well as our interview with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
