Idris Elba to Guest Star on The Office

at . Comments

Actor Idris Elba (The Wire) has been cast on The Office as a new rival to Dunder-Mifflin Scranton's regional manager Michael Scott (Steve Carell), according to Variety.

Elba will appear in six episodes later this season. He'll play a no-nonsense manager hired at Dunder Mifflin's corporate office who will make Michael's life a living hell.

As if Toby didn't do that enough. Some of Idris Elba's other credits include Rocknrolla, The Unborn, and Obsessed. He just also finished filming the feature Bone Deep.

Given how Michael treats Stanley, and his disdain for all things productive, you can pretty much guarantee that The Office quotes will soon become more racist and inappropriate than ever.

The Office Quotes

Guess what, I have flaws. What are they? Oh, I don't know. I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me... No, don't sue me. That is the opposite of the point that I'm trying to make.


Sometimes I'll start a sentence, and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way. Like an improv conversation. An improversation.
