Rain Wilson, best known as Dwight Schrute on the NBC show 'The Office', has been cast in the role of Harry Mudd in the new Star Trek Discovery series.

Since the series takes place in the Prime timeline (not the Kelvin timeline depicted in the recent movies), this is a re-casting from the role's original actor, Roger Carmel. Carmel played Harry Mudd in both the 1960's live-action, and well as the 70's animated series.
CBS has yet to announce an updated debut date for Star Trek:Discovery.
