Rainn Wilson interview Rainn Wilson in 'The Bassoon King' book trailer -- exclusive

Posted on

Most celebrities, at one time or another, have probably experienced an adversarial interview. But how many of those interviewees were questioned by… themselves?

That’s just what happens to Rainn Wilson, actor, SoulPancake founder, and author of the forthcoming memoir, The Bassoon King: My Life in Art, Faith, and Idiocy, in his book trailer — which EW exclusively premieres below. Watch him field awkward questions about the book (and some… unsavory physical details), all while trapped in a van with his other half. Or, other whole?

The Bassoon King, which sweeps from Wilson’s childhood in Nicaragua, through his teen years and his time on The Office, doesn’t just cover the funny bits: He also delves into his spiritual life, exploring the Bahá’i faith in which he was raised. The book will be released Nov. 10.
