NBC's Schrute-heavy Office spin-off The Farm had its eccentric family outlined in June; now casting is ramping up. Dwight's Bigfoot-seeking, marijuana-farming younger brother Jeb is set to be played by Thomas Middleditch. A few facts about young Thomas: He appeared in The Campaign, he has a blog called Middleditch Littlebitch, and he's got a comedic if slightly disrespectful impression of There Will Be Blood's Daniel Plainview under his belt.-Vulture
His humor reminds me a lot of the Meyers brothers, Josh and Seth (the TV news anchor and head writer of Saturday Night Live). Actually, I thought he might have been their younger brother the first time I saw him in anything. His voice sounds a lot like theirs and so are his looks.
He's done a lot of stand-up and worked with a lot of actors, as well. Some in comedy. Some not. Most of his stand-up is very collegiate savy. I can't wait to see him in FUN SIZE a film coming out soon with Janey Levy and Victoria Justice. He's in The Campaign that is now in theaters.
Thomas has done a variety of films. Some serious. Some not so serious. He shows he can be rather versatile. He was in Splinterheads back in 2009. He was also in Being Flynn.
Middleditch has also done some voices, as well. He's played the teacher in the newest Beavis and Butt-head.
He will definitely be one to watch this year and next in comedy.
