'The Office' Spinoff Casts Majandra Delfino as Dwight's Sister
Dwight Schrute, meet your sister.
NBC's The Office spinoff, centered on Dwight (Rainn Wilson) as a beet farmer and running a bed and breakfast inn, has landed Majandra Delfino as his younger sister Fannie and newcomer Blake Garrett as his nephew Cameron, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Delfino's character -- described as a "pseudo-intellectual lefty" and who left the farm for Boston -- will be introduced in an episode of The Office in the new season, as TVLine first reported. Should NBC give a series order to the spinoff, currently titled The Farm, Delfino would be a series regular.
Delfino, who starred in Roswell, recently appeared in ABC Family's State of Georgia.
Delfino is repped by APA and Ziffren Brittenham.
