Timothy Olyphant to Cause Controversy on The Office

at . Comments

Michael Scott may be leaving Scranton next year, but he'll have a new enemy to deal with before he goes.

TV Guide reports that Justified star Timothy Olyphant will appear on at least two episodes of The Office this fall, joining Dundler Mifflin as an unethical salesman.

"He steals clients away from Jim and Michael and Dwight, so they have a little sting set up," producer Paul Lieberstein told the publication. "They set up a fake company to see what his secret is."

Lieberstein also teases another development for the departing boss:

"Michael hires his nephew, who's a completely incompetent kid, and he has to deal with nepotism in the office, which is eventually going to send him into mandatory counseling with Toby as his counselor."

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.
