Will Ferrell: Coming to The Office!

at . Comments

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.

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.
