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.
