Rainn Wilson: Ninja master

155125__dwight_lRainn Wilson (pictured, right), whose luxuriant mysteriousness and inventory of strange, constipated faces know no bounds, has written a screenplay. It is about a ninja. Wilson will play this ninja, who, according to today’s Hollywood Reporter, is "aonce-great ninja who is now living a life of mediocrity."

Ninja? Dwight? Really? … Why, yes! Of course! At his deepest depths, the ninja resonates with the sounds of ancient, sleek, sophisticated badness. If you don’t think the Rainn-ninja idea works, let me tell you. I believe in Rainn. Not only because his name is Rainn with two N’s, but because he’s done ninja before.

For instance:

  • Check out this piece of advice from Schrute-Space, Dwight’s Office blog: "Use a dragon pinch on his Carotid artery and cause him to collapse.  (Jump back!  Don’t get trapped under there!)" C’mon now. That lives and breathes ninja.
  • Though there wasn’t much stealth involved, Wilson channeled ninjutsu in a guest role on Entourage, where he played an Internet critic who was about to sabotage the opening box office of Aquaman. It took the ministrations of three porn stars to get him to back off. That automatically propels him into ninja territory. Kind of ugly and nerdy, but still ninja, and that’s what matters here.
  • He was in Baadasssss!. Please. Need I say more?

    To ed and Ann, I can’t help myself on this one: “cant we all just get along?”
    Regarding Rainn. A few years back ago at my best friend’s wedding, we ran into this scraggly looking hippy like white guy who my best friend said had earned himself a Black belt in Ninjitsu. Allegedly, that’s all you need to be a ninja. That and a badazzed looking black costume like the one I wore for halloween a few years back ago.
    And I wrote a song about ninjas once. It’s called “Strictly for my Ningas”. Take that Michael Richards!

    ‘Strictly for my Ningas’!! (LMAO) That was almost worth Richards revealing himself as a Saltine. Thank you Ep. You made my day!

    My favorite Dwight quote of this season is still “When I die, I want to be frozen and if they have to freeze me in pieces, so be it. I will wake up stronger than ever because I will have used that time to figure out exactly why I died and what moves I could have used to defend myself better now that I know what hold he had me in.”
