'The Office' Spinoff Casts Cousin, Nazi Uncle Deadline
"The Office' spinoff "The Farm" has added two cast members: Tom Bower of "Die Hard 2" as Dwight's great-uncle with Nazi roots, and Matt Jones as Dwight’s cousin Zeke, reports Deadline.com.
The spinoff, which focuses on Dwight, played by Rainn Wilson, living at the Schrute family beet farm and bed and breakfast, will feature Bower as Great-Uncle Heinrich, a charming but manipulative man who may have spent time in Argentina after World War II because of his Nazi ties, the story says.
Jones, of "Breaking Bad," will play Zeke in a regular role, which was expanded from a guest-starring or recurring role, a separate Deadline.com story says. Jones played Badger on "Breaking Bad."
