Character Details For The Office Spin-Off, The Farm: Dwight’s Family Revealed

Our first look at The Farm, a proposed Schrute-centric spin-off from The Office, will be as an episode of the latter’s upcoming ninth series. As well as Dwight, and presumably Mose, the returning cast will be comprised of other members of the Schrute family.

And as you’d imagine, they’re pulling in some of the renegade Schrutes for a bit of Twon Mouse/Country Mouse action.

Here are the character breakdowns as yet released. If any of these sound like you, contact your agent. And, depending on which one, your doctor. And a lawyer.

FANNIE SCHRUTE | Attractive, urban and in her late 20s/early 30s, Dwight’s younger sister fled the Schrute farm life for Boston as soon as she could, and has had little to do with her roots for quite some time. Now divorced with one son, Fannie is “a bit of a pseudo-intellectual lefty” with an ironic sense of humor and a great heart.

JEB SCHRUTE | Dwight’s easygoing thirtysomething brother hasn’t done well in any of the career paths he’s followed – worm breeder and Bigfoot hunter among them — but has found some success with a pot farm. He’s got none of Dwight’s dedication or work ethic, but he has made an exercise video about things you can do with a knife and a canoe. (We like him already.)

CAMERON WHITMAN | Dwight’s smart and slightly weird 9-year-old nephew (Fannie’s son) is a cosmopolitan lad who nevertheless feels the pull of his Schrute heritage, especially when he’s around someone — his uncles, perhaps? — who can offer the fatherly guidance he lacks.

HEINRICH MANHEIM | The Schrute siblings’ great uncle is charming, greedy, manipulative… and just may have had to spend time in Argentina following World War II, thanks to his German National Socialist roots. Oh, and he vows to kill Dwight by the end of the first episode.

Thanks to TV Line for the casting call details. They were suitably scary.

Parks and Recreation was almost an Office spin-off and that one worked out superbly. Here’s hoping it happens again.
