'Office' star stranded? Rainn Wilson rants about US Airways on Twitter
Rainn Wilson let US Airways have it after he and six of his fellow co-stars from "The Office" were left stranded by the airline when a connecting flight to Scranton departed early without them.
The 47-year-old actor was set to fly to the Pennsylvania town, where "The Office" takes place, for the show's wrap party. The workplace comedy is set to end its run after nine seasons on May 16 with the series finale.
"So @USAirways just screwed me & half the cast of 'The Office.' Conctng flight left BEFORE departure time. Sorry Scranton won't see u til tom," Wilson Tweeted on May 3 at 2:39 pm PT.
In another Tweet, he wrote, "We're being forced to rent cars and drive to Scranton from Philly. Does the CEO of @USAirways want to join us? I will fondle him angrily."
"The plane was a 20 seater, missing 7 people who had obviously just landed & it leaves 10 minutes EARLY! @USAirways," he Tweeted at 3:05 p.m. PT.
The actor later posted a screen grab from his iPhone showing a conversation between himself and someone from the airline who apologized for the situation.
Eventually, Wilson made it to Scranton in time for the party and Tweeted photos of a large crowd.
Thousands of fans as well as cast members attended the wrap party in Scranton on Saturday, May 4, according to The Associated Press. The event also included a parade and several stars performed in front of the Lackawanna County courthouse along with The Scrantones.
The series finale of "The Office" airs on May 16 on NBC.
