Another young talent has joined NBC’s Office spinoff.

Former College Humor comedy actor Thomas Middleditch is going down to The Farm. Middleditch, who also has a role in the upcoming film The Campaign, will play Dwight Schrute’s brother Jeb.

Jeb is described as a pot farmer who’s failed at bunch of wacky business ventures (such as Bigfoot hunter). He joins actress Majandra Delfino who’s been previously cast as Dwight’s younger sister Fannie.

With The Farm filling out its cast and NBC deciding to end The Office after the upcoming ninth season, it seems very likely this spinoff will at least make it to the pilot stage (which as an episode of The Office during the final season).
