Rainn Wilson is taking on different kind of role. TVLine reports the Office star has joined Amazon’s new TV show, Utopia.
From Gillian Flynn, the drama series “centers on a group of young adults who meet online that are mercilessly hunted by a shadowy deep state organization after they come into possession of a near-mythical cult underground graphic novel.”
On Utopia, Wilson will be playing “Michael Stearns, a once promising virologist who has lost his edge. When a nationwide outbreak of a deadly flu arises, Michael offers his expertise, and soon finds he has landed smack in the middle of something much bigger.”
Additionally, Deadline reports Dan Byrd and Cory Michael Smith have joined the Amazon series, playing Ian and Thomas, respectively.
Amazon has not yet announced a premiere date for Utopia.
