Rainn Wilson, who you may know as Dwight Schrute from The Office, speaks to hosts Shelly Mazzanoble and Greg Tito about his new autobiography The Bassoon King.

Wilson discusses what it was like to play D&D and go to gaming conventions in the 1980s, and how he’d like to act in fantasy films. (Rainn has got a killer English accent, people. Hire him!)

Check out The Bassoon King here at Amazon.com or your local bookstore!

And here is the link Rainn provided to us for the Norwescon Masquerade from 1982: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBOP49oA3Mg. Amazing. By the way, Norwescon is still going strong in the PNW but it’s moved to the DoubleTree Hotel in Seatac.
