Rainn Wilson on the ‘Matrix’-inspired ‘Office’ cold open: ‘One of the all time greats’

Rainn Wilson most recently starred in the thriller Don’t Tell a Soul where his security guard character spends the bulk of the film at the bottom of an abandoned well.

But his most memorable role is still fan favorite character Dwight Schrute from The Office. He recently spoke with Yahoo Entertainment about a newly-released cold open that shows a Matrix-inspired prank concocted by Jim and Pam.

“I thought it was just one of the all time greats,” Wilson says, “and it deserves to be seen by fans."

Hank the security guard (Hugh Dane) plays Dorpheus (brother to Morpheus) and Wilson praised the late Dane for his performance.

“He passed away a few years ago. He was a great guy. So funny,” Wilson said, “we could have used him in a lot more episodes, frankly, It was just hysterical.”
