Actor Rainn Wilson brought a big, strong trash-talkin’ game to the rematch between his beloved Seattle Seahawks and the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

Make that a big, strong “Cam ‘Fig’ Newton”-talkin’ game on Facebook and Twitter.

It worked out poorly for him, with the Panthers advancing to the NFC title game with a 31-24 victory. Don’t think for a minute that the person who runs the Panthers’ Twitter account didn’t remind Dwight Schrute, Wilson’s character from “The Office,” about it.

Ah, payback.
