Rainn (on his The Office character, Dwight Schrute): Dwight is a sad clown. You've seen those paintings of sad clown ... Pagliacci weeping, beating the bass drum. Dwight is hard to categorize. You can't quite say ... which is one thing I really enjoy about him. People say 'Oh, he's the dorky one.' Well, he's kind of dorky but he's not really dorky. The only thing you can say about Dwight Schrute is that he is annoying. I will give him that. He is definitely annoying. But is he a loser? No. He's good at his job and he's focused. He's intense. Is he dumb? Yeah. About a lot of things, yeah, he's an idiot. But about a lot of things too, he's really smart. He's an excellent paper salesman. He takes his job very seriously. He takes himself very seriously. The best summary I ever read [was] when someone wrote about him on the Internet that he was a fascist nerd. I think that kind of sums up Dwight perfectly.
