It's an interesting, transitional time in Rainn Wilson's life. With the end of "The Office" upon him, he's found himself in a sentimental mood, and perhaps not coincidentally, grappling with existential questions as part of his Own Special "Oprah and Rainn Wilson Present SoulPancake."
In a wide-ranging interview with HuffPost TV, Wilson discussed what's in store for the end of "The Office," his mixed reaction to NBC's decision to pass on his Dwight-focused "Office" spinoff "The Farm," and the Own special, which explores the nature of love. The conversation also touched on the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, as Wilson, the father of an eight-year-old son, called for a national discussion focused on stopping the cycle of gun violence in America, "because our current plan just isn't working."
How are you feeling as "The Office" comes down the home stretch?
You know it's interesting. It's very bittersweet. Everyone »
