Idol Chatter

rainnwilsoninmonstersvsalie.jpgAlthough you probably know him best as hilarious weirdo Dwight Schrute on “The Office,” Rainn Wilson’s new role is as the voice of evil alien Gallaxhar in the new animated film, “Monsters vs. Aliens” which opens today (see Movie Mom’s review).
In a new interview with Parade Magazine, Wilson talks a bit about his Bahai faith, saying that it keeps him grounded as an actor:
“I’m a member of the Baha’i faith and there’s a lot of kind of Baha’i themes, spiritual and mystical elements that fuel my creativity. I feel like the artistic process is very akin to kind of a spiritual process of creating, entertaining, and making the world a better place. It’s a way to be of service. I also get a lot out of playing with my young son, Walter. He gives me a lot of inspiration as well.”
Wilson also recently co-founded the cool new website SoulPancake, which is “the only place on the Web to debate, wrestle with, and explore creativity AND spirituality.”
