Rainn Wilson is stepping into a new role, and fans won’t be seeing it so much as hearing it.

In the former “Office” star’s latest venture, he portrays Terry Carnation, the “Pope of the Paranormal,” in “Dark Air with Terry Carnation”, a darkly comedic new podcast.

Created by Wilson and Aaron Lee, the podcast explores the on-and off-air exploits of host Terry Carnation, described as “a late-night talk-radio show host who deals with bizarre topics, outrageous callers… and gets caught up in a mystery of his own.”
