This quarantine, Rainn Wilson is looking not just to entertain fans, but to let them join him for interviews on social media. His original show is seeing great success in helping others.



" alum Rainn Wilson has picked up a new hosting gig during the COVID-19 self-quarantining period. Almost every day at noon, he interacts with fans via Instagram live on the


The 54-year-old is filling in a gap for those who might be tired of watching Netflix and eating all day. Or maybe, they just need a bit of humor to lower anxiety levels.


Wilson launches interactive fan show

Wilson started his show, called "Hey, Human," in early April. The actor's unchecked humor and compassionate attitude towards others are an attribute of the hilariously raw show.

Typically, Wilson asks his guests for advice on various matters to do with managing coronavirus fears and social distancing. Fans also share stories of how they stay connected and healthy.


He's welcomed more popular guests

Wilson also has fellow celebrities on the show. Since he started, he's welcomed Justin Baldoni, Finneas O'Connell, and Noah Cyrus, among others.

The platform he uses, Soul Pancake, was founded in 2009 and is based primarily around sharing positive, uplifting content with others. Based on the comments for the show, Wilson is doing just that.

How to get onto the show

The author and director promotes the segment — which typically runs for about a half an hour — on his Facebook page as well. "Watch my new daily show [...] live at Noon," he captioned one clip.


He continued, "I interview random viewers! Could be you! Every. Single. Quarantined. Day." To get onto the show, fans have to be watching during the Instagram live and request to join with video sharing.

Since playing the eccentric role of Dwight Schrute on "The Office," Wilson has starred in numerous films and appeared in several television shows. Most recently, he played Trevor in the comedy series, "Mom."

Two more "Office" alums facetime

Wilson is not the only "Office" star to use social media to speak to friends who are self-isolating. The week before, Angela Kinsey and Creed Bratton did a facetime session with each other.


Kinsey shared a screenshot of her and Bratton, who is a neighbor of hers, as they wore toothy smiles during the call. "I love this fella so much!" Kinsey wrote in the caption.

It looks like "The Office" cast is doing their share of spreading hope and positivity during the pandemic. We look forward to seeing more hilarious interviews from Wilson and his lucky fans.
