When it comes to sitcom characters, few can evoke the level of irritating endearment as The Office's Dwight Schrute, the hopelessly naïve wise-ass and Assistant to the Regional Manager at Dunder Mifflin.

The character, played by Rainn Wilson, has become permanently embedded into fans' memories for his devastating center-part and unwavering loyalty to a paper company that captured audiences attention for nine seasons. Now, Wilson has been announced as one of the special guests making their way to Michigan to participate in the 30th annual Motor City Comic Con.

On May 18, Wilson will be joined by fellow stars of The Office Leslie David Baker (Stanley Hudson) and Creed Bratton (Creed Bratton), who were previously announced as attending guests of the convention. Fans will get a chance to interact with Wilson who will be hosting a Q&A panel and will be signing autographs and taking photos with fans, both which are available for purchase at Motor City Comic Con.

The 30th edition of Motor City Comic Con will take place May 17 - 19, 2019 at Surban Collection Showplace in Novi. Adult weekend passes are available starting at $80, with VIP, and daily ticket options available at
