About Dwight Schrute from the Office
Dwight Schrute is a character on NBC’s U.S version of the U.K original comedy ‘The Office’. Dwight’s character is based on the original character Gareth Keenan (played by Mackenzie Crook). Not much is known about Dwight’s background other than him making claims of remembering his own birth and being shunned by his family as a child for not saving the oil from a can of tuna. In fact, Dwight makes many claims in the show’s 9 seasons, including performing his own circumcision and being able to control his cholesterol with the power of his mind, none of which could ever be proven.
Dwight is known as one of TV’s greatest sidekicks because of his unwavering support of his office superior Michael Scott (played by Steve Carell). Dwight is also an expert at farm life. Being a survivalist, Dwight has trained himself in the art of agriculture and butchering. It is later revealed in the show that Dwight lives on his family’s farm and grows and sells beets to local shops. Dwight is the dry-humored, shockingly inappropriate nerd we all love.
