Dwight Schrute gets a new foe

Since Pam (Jenna Fischer) is busy being Jim's (John Krasinski) foe on "The Office," Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson) apparently requires a new one -- now that he won't be spinning off into "The Farm," as he would in a just world.

You would think that foe would be a zombie, android or vampire. But actually, Dwight would probably admire one of them too much. So it'll be Michael Imperioli, reports TVLine. The "Sopranos" vet is currently shooting his new role as a karate instructor named Sensei Billy. His first episode will air sometime this spring.


Previously, Dwight revealed himself to be a purple belt in Goju-Ryu karate, which means that he's still looking at massive dojo time before receiving a black belt -- especially with his attitude.

Imperioli is known for killing other characters, but this could be his first time using bare hands.

"The Office" airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
