“The Office” actor Rainn Wilson will write a memoir – kind of.
Wilson is writing a book for Penguin Random House imprint Dutton. He says it will chronicle his time growing up, a period in which he lived in New York, and his time acting on “The Office,” but says he wouldn’t attach the word “memoir” to the project.
“If I were in my 80s, had cured a disease and survived a war, I would be entitled to write a memoir,” he said in a statement. “No. The guy who is best known for playing a paper salesman with a bad haircut, tweeting fart jokes and starting a quirky spirituality website does not merit a 'memoir'. For the time being, let's call it a 'Serio-Comic Examination of my Life in Art, Faith and Comedy. And beets.”
The book is scheduled to be published in fall 2014.
