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

Dwight: What is my perfect crime? I break into Tiffany's at midnight. Do I go for the vault? No, I go for the chandelier. It's priceless. As I'm taking it down, a woman catches me. She tells me to stop. It's her father's business. She's Tiffany. I say no. We make love all night. In the morning the cops come and I escape in one of their uniforms. I tell her to meet me in Mexico but I go to Canada. I don't trust her. Besides, I like the cold. Thirty years later, I get a postcard. I have a son and he's the chief of police. This is where the story gets interesting: I tell Tiffany to meet me in Paris, by the Trocadero. She's been waiting for me all these years; she's never taken another lover. I don't care, I don't show up. I go to Berlin. That's where I stashed the chandelier.

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.
