Rainn Wilson Plays The Ole' 'Quirky, Misanthropic Savant' In Fox's 'Backstrom' Trailer
It's about time someone played that sort of character. Rainn Wilson has been more or less quiet since walking away from the role of Dwight, killing all those spinoff rumors. But now he's back. And, thanks to the braintrust behind Bones, he's playing a pretty cliche character in Backstrom. Yay! He's genius detective who drinks, smokes, and plays by his own rules! Just like every other detective on TV these days. However, this is Rainn Wilson, and Rainn Wilson is funnier than most of the other actors on TV, so hopefully, this can outperform what it is on paper and really do him some justice. But, judging by the trailer...maybe not?
