244wilsonrainn100606.jpgRainn Wilson, one of the stars of NBC’s hit The Office, has been chosen to host the 2008 Film Independent Spirit Awards on February 23rd. The event is one of the few (if any) to have the full backing of the Writers Guild of America — which has brought the entertainment industry to a near stand still as a result of the ongoing strike. With that endorsement, the Spirit Awards have permission to hire WGA writers for the program. From the article,

“In a press release, Wilson expressed his joy at being chosen and commented on what he could offer the show. ‘It is truly an honor to be asked to host an awards show that salutes the cutting edge in cinema. I like to think that I bring a bit of an ‘independent spirit’ to the proceedings as I recently installed a gun rack in my Prius,’ Wilson said.”

The Spirit Awards will also have a bit of an “eco” edge. In addition to in-home streaming of films and voting online, additional efforts include the use of bio-diesel fueled generators and the recycling of numerous items including all food scraps, AstroTurf, wood, and plastic. The organizers will also offer a “ride share” option for those planning to attend the awards — and, of course, all organically grown produce purchased from local farms within a 150 mile radius of Los Angeles for the catering.
