Rainn Wilson grew up in Seattle and feels a strong connection for our community way up in the corner of our massive country. He's on the board for the Mona Foundation and as a beloved human being calls on the super-powers of wonderful friends and talents to entertain us on Thursday, May 30th at the Paramount Theatre.

UPDATE: there are still a few tickets available for the show.

He called in to give me some precious time for silly questions about his favorite Seahawks jersey, growing up in Seattle and all its stupid traffic, and the bond between Seattle actors (scroll down to listen). He also hit me with more info on that William Eyelash (Billie Eilish) piece that went viral.

Watch Rainn Wilson visit "The Office's Biggest Fan," Billie Eyelash.

Rainn couldn't be a nicer man even years ago when I made a gigantic ass of myself for reasons I refuse to share but were perfectly captured best by this photo:

Fun to see this old photo with Rainn Wilson pop up in my feed this morning. He was promoting a great benefit gig he used to do at the Paramount. Wonderful guy.
