The Office Spoilers: Corporate Shakeup

by at . Comments

Last month, news Idris Elba joining The Office cast for six episodes broke and we learned The Wire star will play a character who will cause Michael Scott a lot of trouble.

Promoted to Jan's old job at corporate - despite Michael's insistence that the position is his - the new boss will usher in an era of discomfort at good ol' Dunder-Mifflin.

Word on the street is Elba's character isn't just causing that drama in New York. On the contrary, he's moving in on Scranton. Is there a hostile takeover in the works?

Remember when Dwight Schrute abandoned Dunder-Mifflin to go work at Staples? What's coming up will be like that, except way bigger. Michael might even have a Jerry Maguire moment on his way out, and one loyal (and pretty major) employee may follow him through the door.

How will the new star ruffle Michael's feathers? How long will Michael leave for, and who will follow? Who knows, but we can guarantee a lot of hilarious Office quotes when it plays out.

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.


When I was in college I used to get wicked hammered. My nickname was puke. I would chug a fifth of socos, sneak into a frat party, polish off a few people's empties, some brewskies, some Jell-O shots, do some body shots off myself, pass out, wake up the next morning, puke, rally, more soco, head to class. Probably would have gotten expelled if I had let it affect my grades, but I aced all my courses. They called me Ace. It was totally awesome. Got straight B's. They called me Buzz.
