Sorry, Jesse: Your pal is headed to Dwight's farm.
"Breaking Bad" actor Matt Jones has been cast in "The Office" spinoff,
according to The Hollywood Reporter. Called "The Farm," the spinoff centers on Dwight's (Rainn Wilson) beet farm where he runs a bed and breakfast with the help of his quirky family members.
Jones will play Dwight's cousin Zeke, with details of his character still a mystery. The actor joins Thomas Middleditch, who will portray Dwight's oddball brother Jeb, Majandra Delfino as his younger sister Frannie and Blake Garrett as nephew Cameron.
If "The Farm" is ordered to series, Jones will become a series regular.
