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.
