Banging away on Neil’s kit for research
To prepare for an upcoming role, Rainn Wilson (aka Dwight Schrute in NBC’s The Office) the actor practiced on Neil Peart’s (yes, THAT Neil Peart) kit in Winnipeg.
… I got to see them on their warmup for their tour and got to meet Neil Peart, who probably is the greatest drummer of all time,” Wilson said. “He let me sit behind his kit and play it. So I was initiated in the world of drumming.”
