Rainn Wilson Roadies Cast

TVLine Items: Rainn Wilson on Roadies, Handler's Talk Show Title and More

Rainn Wilson‘s next TV role is described as “extremely self-important” — a quality he’s got plenty of experience playing.

The Office vet will guest-star on Roadies, Showtime’s upcoming comedy about the reckless, romantic, funny and poignant lives of a group of backstage workers who live for music and the de facto family they’ve formed along the way.

Wilson will appear as Bryce Newman, a famous and highly conceited music journalist. The series — which stars Luke Wilson (Old School) and Carla Gugino (Wayward Pines) — premieres Sunday, June 26, at 10/9c.

    Didn’t Rainne Wilson also play a “highly conceited music journalist” in Almost Famous?

    Noooo! First HBO gets Sesame Street and now Hulu is taking George!? Why is Amazon Prime losing shows? Come on Amazon, shell out some money to PBS so my two year old can watch some stuff that doesn’t involve cussing.
