This is gonna be good!
Will Ferrell will be joining The Office for a four-episode arc where he will play a branch manager who is just as inept as Steve Carell's Michael Scott.
Executive Producer Paul Liberstein says:
"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."
Ferrell will be featured in three episodes with Carrell and then will be in one episode after Michael Scott's departure (just before the season finale).
The producers did a great job in finding somebody that matches Carrell's humor. Maybe he'll stay on permanently? That would be awesome!
