Will Ferrell: Coming to The Office!

Casting news doesn't get much funnier than this: Will Ferrell will come on board The Office this season for a quartet of episodes.

The actor - who appeared with Steve Carell in Anchorman - will arrive in Scranton as an inept manager from another branch. Says star/producer Paul Lieberstein:

“We found Steve Carell when he was nothing but a movie star and we turned him into a television star. We are proud to continue The Office‘s tradition of discovering famous talent, and we hope that once America gets a good look at Will, they’ll see what we see: tremendous raw sexuality.”

Look for Ferrell to interact with Carell's Michael Scott for three episodes, and then stick around for one more after that mainstay exits the show.

This shocking, exciting news follows the announcement that Ricky Gervais will also stop by The Office later this year.
