The Office's Rainn Wilson has been picked up by Fox Atomic to star in the upcoming comedy The Rocker.
Rainn Wilson for The Rocker
Directed by Peter Cattaneo -- the guy responsible for showing us a Full Monty -- The Rocker will feature Rainn Wilson as a failed drummer who gets a second shot at fame.
Wilson is negotiating to topline the film during his hiatus from the NBC sitcom The Office. Scripted by Ryan Jaffe, and re-written by Wally Wolodarsky and Maya Forbes, the comedy casts Wilson as a modern day Pete Best, the man who dropped out of the Beatles before the band became globally famous.
