Wilson hires hooker

04.25.2007

Rainn Wilson, currently kicking ass as Dwight Schrute on "The Office," will star in the DreamWorks comedy GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE based on his own concept. The film will star Wilson as a "lonely geek" who's looking to practice with women and hires a prostitute to pose as his girlfriend. Wilson brought writers Mark and Brian Gunn to the pitch based on a script he had read that they wrote for Wilson's "Office" co-star Steve Carell (titled JUVIE, it would star Carell as a white-collar guy accidentally sentenced to a juvenile detention hall). Producing GIRLFRIEND will be Ivan Reitman who worked with Wilson on another girlfriend movie, MY SUPER EX-GIRLFRIEND. Wilson has a number of projects in the works including BANZAI SHADOWHANDS with Jason Reitman (hold on, I'm starting to see a connection here...) and KANAN RHODES with Bob Odenkirk ("Mr. Show"). The actor can be seen next in JUNO with Jennifer Garner and Ellen Page....directed by Jason Reitman.

Extra Tidbit: Wilson and Will Arnett were the two choices to play GOB on "Arrested Development" but the producers went with Arnett at the last second.
