Who better to spoof Angus T. Jones’ stunning YouTube video than fellow sitcom star Rainn Wilson?
Yesterday Jones made headlines by bashing his own show, Two and a Half Men, as part of online religious testimonial. Below, Wilson offers his own spin on the viral hit. “Dwight from The Office is nothing, okay?” says Wilson, while sitting besides co-star Craig Robinson. “The Office is nothing, all right? If you watch The Office, please don’t watch The Office. I’m on The Office. It’s filth. And that filth will rot your brain.”
That Wilson’s The Office is part of NBC’s Thursday comedy block — a lineup that’s getting stomped in the ratings by CBS’ Men and Big Bang Theory on the same night — makes this shot even more interesting. (The shows are not in the exact same time period, mind you, but their networks’ comedy blocks overlap).
It would be even better if Wilson would have made this totally straight-faced and earnest, just like Jones, but we’ll take it. Check out the video below:
There’s some new Jones-related headlines out there today since the actor will not appear in the show’s final two episodes to be filmed before the production’s holiday break. But both episodes were written before yesterday’s news hit.
