Thomas Middleditch (College Humor) has been cast as Jeb Schrute in the upcoming Office spinoff, The Farm. Jeb is the fun loving, motivated, and hard working brother of Dwight who’s lack of follow through is a constant source or trouble for the family.

From The Hollywood Reporter: While Jeb has tried several different career paths — worm farmer, Bigfoot hunter, Army farmer and now running a successful pot farm in Northern California — he lacks Dwight’s sense of principle, hierarchy and work ethic. He’s also said to have made his own exercise video of things you can do with a knife and canoe (naturally!).

Middleditch joins Majandra Delfino who plays sister Frannie and Blake Garrett as nephew Cameron. The Office ends it’s 9 season run after this season. The Office returns September 20th at 9 PM on NBC.

      Looks like he'll be the "Jim" character.

      I really want this show to not happen… much like I wish the last two seasons didn't happen either. *sigh*

      I'm not sure about this. The concept is funny, but series funny? Probably not. It might be better off as an Internet short. Or like the Simpsons were on the Tracy Ulman show only the Farm could be during The Office.
