Exclusive: The Office Pits Dwight Against Sopranos Vet Michael Imperioli
Now that The Office’s Jim is dividing his time between two desks, obviously Dwight needs a new nemesis, right? (Right.) And TVLine has learned exclusively that that foil is going to be played by none other than Sopranos alum Michael Imperioli!
As a matter of fact, the actor is taping today in his new role of Sensei Billy, the karate instructor who’s about ready to commit hara-kiri over Dwight’s inimitable “presence” in his dojo. (Dwight, an impossible student? Imagine that.)
Something tells us that, if he isn’t able to get his pupil into a black belt and outta there, there’s a 50/50 shot he’ll throttle Dwight with one.
Imperioli’s episode is slated to air in the spring.
