Will Ferrell to Debut The Office: First Look

at . Comments

Michael Scott didn't merely get engaged this week on The Office, he made a major announcement: he and Holly will be moving to Colorado to care for her ailing father.

This will be the basis behind Steve Carell's departure, of course, but he won't exit the sitcom until he reunites with a long-time friend. That's right, Will Ferrell debuts on April 14 as a manager sent in to take over for Michael.

His character won't stick around beyond four episodes, but it's clear Michael will be happy to see him stop by for a bit. See what we mean in this promo:

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.
