Rainn Wilson Is Very Spirited

Rainn Wilson, aka Dwight from The Office, is the host of this year's Spirit Awards which airs on Feb. 23rd on IFC. And you can expect him to be pulling out all the stops for his gig. He says he dropped trou for a few comedy sketches he taped. Yikes! Not sure I'll ever need to see that! Rainn assures fans he's positive he made an add of himself.

The Spirit Awards are considered the "fun" awards in Hollywood, since they occur one day before the Oscars. Rainn says, "It's non-glitz-and-glam so the stars get to be themselves. It's on a beach in a tent in Santa Monica so it's more freewheeling.

There's no time limit as to how long people can talk," he said. "It's kind of a ramshackle, crazy awards show that's really about cutting-edge cinema, and it's really for movie fans and actor fans."
