Rainn Wilson coming to Humber College

Rainn Wilson, the actor who played Dwight Shrute on The Office will come to Humber College’s Lakeshore Campus in January 2020 for an in-depth look at his time on the popular TV series and to provide advice for students, as part of IGNITE’s Real Talks series.

Although The Office has been off the air for a few years at this point, the legacy of Dunder Mifflin Paper Co. still has a strong grip on pop culture and television as a whole. The jokes of Dwight Schrute, Michael Scott, Jim Halpert, Pam Beasley and all of the wild and wacky employees from Scranton, PA can still be heard quoted both in-person and online.

Wilson won the SAG award for Performance in an Ensemble Cast for comedy series for The Office in 2004, 2007 and 2008 which he shared with his costars of the show.

In the time since The Office left TV, Wilson has founded the website and YouTube channel SoulPancake. The channel tackles the human experience and focuses on those who have the ability to change the world.

Wilson has also been part of numerous movements that focus on the betterment of the planet and has recently switched to a vegan lifestyle. He was involved with Justin Wu’s UN Climate Change project in order to bring aware to the crisis that we, as a global community, are facing for the foreseeable future. You can check out SoulPancake’s YouTube channel here.

Tickets for the event go on sale on Jan. 2 and will be $5 for Humber and Guelph-Humber students and $15 for non-Humber students and guests. Only one guest will be allowed per Humber/Guelph-Humber students.
