In the short time since being elected pope on March 13, 2013, Pope Francis has â€śrocked the international communityâ€ť (as reported by Time magazine). He is the first Jesuit pope, the first from the Americas, the first from the Southern Hemisphere, and the first non-European pope since Syrian Gregory III in 741; and along with these firsts, he has many other reasons to stand out.
Most of us know him from The Office, some may even know him from his stint on Six Feet Under. Perhaps youâ€™ve read his New York Times bestselling SoulPancake or count yourself among his 4 million Twitter followers. Regardless of where you know him from, you know that Rainn Wilson is unique.
In Bassoon King,Â Rainn Wilson tells you just that. Â He also discusses his upbringing inÂ Washington and Illinois withÂ his free-thinking parents, his times as a young actor in New York, and his connection with the Baha’i faith in which he was raised in. Â All of this and more amounts to his uniquely awesome persona and comedic antics. Â Certainly something to check out.
