Dwight Schrute’s Sister
Will Be Played By One Of
The Hottest Women Alive!!
Majandra Delfino, a Scarlett Johansson lookalike and former “Roswell” regular, will play Dwight Schrute’s divorced kid sister Fanny in the backdoor pilot for “The Office” spinoff “The Farm.”
Fanny, said to possess an ironic sense of humor, fled the Schrute farm for Boston at an early age, but has now returned to help Dwight run his bed-and-breakfast.
Still to be cast in the project are Dwight’s brother, slacker marijuana farmer (and Bigfoot hunter) Jeb, and Heinrich Manheim, Dwight’s great uncle, who may be a Nazi war criminal.
Longtime “Office” showrunner Paul Leiberstein is creating “The Farm” with Rainn Wilson, the actor who plays Dwight.

Her facial expression in the top pic is bland and the smugness in the second kinda kills it. <p> Not a hater, but sexiness in a picture to me should exude something about character - and she doesn't pull it off for me. <p> I'm sure she'll be crying into her pillow.

it's a pretty face, but there is a smugness to it. along the way, someone in the biz or early modeling years told her that mean smug aloof look was sexy and she never bothered to try another. i'm sure it will wok for her character though...but even wooden scarjo has more range. she at least parts her lips to make that 'stupid girl in disbelief/thinking' look.

Not even that. They said back door pilot, that means they will air it as a episode of the office. I'll bet they never make it to series. Without Mose it's a no go for me.

She is 31 a year younger than me.

Does this sound like a good idea to anyone?

Original. Isn't the druggie brother worn out enough of a cliche yet?
Aug. 18, 2012, 9:42 a.m. CST
Man what a gulity pleasure this show was. I often wondered what happened to Delfino, nice to see she's making a comeback, however short lived it will be. Always thought Jason Behr would have a bigger post Roswell career, but maybe he decided to just quit acting after his castmate/ex girlfriend the bitch Heigl blew up with her shitty acting "career". Shiri Appleby is too cute. Emilie de Ravin went on to Lost and other shit. Brendan Fehr, Adam Rodriguez, Colin Hanks, William Sadler, this show had a pretty damned good cast. Definitely check it out if you are a fan of that CW tweeny stuff. Smallville borrowed a few plot points from it.

More like it was a rip of of superman. I liked the show well enough but it was embarrasing to watch with my parents when scifi reran it about 5 years back. All the making out. The third season really dropped the ball on great characters like Maria's mom and Brody and Nicholas
Aug. 18, 2012, 10 a.m. CST
Not at all in fact she's very pedestrian looking.
Aug. 18, 2012, 10:17 a.m. CST
The fact that she looks like a 12 yr old boy Idk but your scaring me herc

Uhhh, when did Molly Ringwald start lookin' hot? - This girl ain't hot by any stretch of the imagination.
Aug. 18, 2012, 10:27 a.m. CST
Like I said she is 31, a year younger than me.
Aug. 18, 2012, 10:34 a.m. CST
Never really thought about the ScarJo comparison until now. It is kind of accurate. They really glammed her up for season 3 of Roswell. She grew her hair out, and was just generally a little bit hotter. And no, season 3 wasn't great, but considering it was pretty close to cancellation after 2, it's better than nothing. Kind of like Jericho, or insert your favorite almost cancelled show. Crap, I'm going to rewatch Roswell again this weekend, aren't I?

But remember when NBC spun off Frasier from Cheers? And when CBS spun off the Jeffersons from Archie Bunker's Place? Sometimes spin-offs work. But yes, sometimes they Joey.

Your idea of one of the hottest women alive is seriously lacking. You need to get out and see more of the world. There are far more beautiful women walking the cities of Europe.

Thought it was an okay show.

Also, any Nazi War Criminal would be damn near 100. That'll be a laugh riot. Druggie brother? Haul him to jail - I don't want to see that shit. Hot girl - nothing like a mood breaker when you're trying to enjoy the misogyny of a rustic beet farmer, his Nazi uncle and retarded brother. This won't be "Joey". It'll be "AfterMASH". "AfterOffice"?

All weird people, lots of transient guests, with Dwight actually the uberserious one with quirks, constantly being frustrated and irritated. The WORST way is the way they're planning it - a family comedy.

Last time I saw her in something she had not much ass to speak of, so I'm hoping she has an ass now. Only her mouth is a Scarlett Johansson lookalike. Nothing else. She's a poor man's ScarJo.

Sincerely, I find Herc's taste in women utterly charming.
Aug. 18, 2012, 1:53 p.m. CST
This show feels desperate. I'd rather Wilson do more movies like Hesher and Super than do a bad office spin off where the star is the wacky neighbor.

Oh comedy gold! FUN-NEE!! But the really comical part not mentioned- he MAY have been at Auschwitz!! Hilarity thy name is NBC!!

A) Bailed on The Office last season but will watch The Farm. B) considering how fat most Americans are there's a good possibility she's one of the hottest women alive
Cuz, y'know, most are fat and ugly so non-fat chick is better.
Aug. 18, 2012, 2:50 p.m. CST
it was one of the better cw shows.. and good mix of romance and sci-fi.. i remember enjoying the earlier eps. then they revealed the teens are alien princes, threw away the romance-sci-fi mix and instantly became run-of-the-mill.

after last season it really couldn't get much worse, could it? I hate how low my standards have become for The Office. It sounds like the show is definitely ending with season 9. I can't see The Office going on without Dwight. Even when shitty stories are written for the character, Wilson is usually the only redeeming factor. There's been nothing to indicate this, but I really hope Angela Kinsey moves over to The Farm as well.

I can't believe I scrolled that far down before somebody made that joke.

Not every female form appearing on a screen is worthy of lust. <p> And it should be established, even formalized in galactic law, that clothes must be doffed on screen before any "hot" label is applied.

Now that's all we're going to judge her on. And to most of us she falls way short of that. Way to do women actors a great favor there, Herc ...

It's weird to say that "one of the hottest women alive" would be a lookalike of someone else. We've all got our own definitions for beautiful, but having a distinct, iconic look always seemed like a starting point. Strange.
Heh, she alrighr. I hope there no scene where Dwite and her make out as it would be wrong (and yuk). Like this news, Office needs bigger univers.
Aug. 19, 2012, 12:22 p.m. CST
Put her beside the likes of Olga Kurylenko or Salma Heyek. Not even in the same universe as being in their league. She IS hot, but not that hot man

of a Frasier-style success story as opposed to a Joey-style flop. I can totally see Dwight being the center of a show. I heard from someone I know who's sister works on Parks and Recreation that Mose (Michael Schur) will put in an occasional appearance if the show gets picked up. Surely everyone can agree that you can't have a Schrute show without Mose. Points off for not calling the show 'Schrute Farms.' Other than that, cannot wait for this show.

Pretty much limitless potential to explore the Schrute clan with a lot of hilarity potential. IMHO one of the most promising spinoffs ever.

Loved the show, mostly for Max and Michael. The Marie character was really annoying, and the Delfino wasn't a very good actress. Of course, she was better than Appleby, who was just terrible. I did think she looked like Scarlett back then, but Scarlett is way hotter now.Neither are as hot as Jason Behr, though. Yes, I said it.

She's hot but they would have been better off going with someone both hot and funny like Abbie Elliott
Don't think I will be watching this. Dwight is pretty played out at this point and his beet farm was always a single note joke.
