We prefer other "Office" characters to Dwight Schrute but we'll admit this is a good idea: NBC is rumored to be working on an "Office" spinoff starring Rainn Wilson's character for a potential midseason 2013 launch, reported Deadline.

According to the site, no deals have been closed. but the proposed spinoff is a comedy in which Dwight will live and run the Schrute family beet farm and bed- and- breakfast.

A wise idea, considering "The "Office" shtick is getting old, fast.
