Will Ferrell Teases That Office Gig Will Be "Full-Time"

We say "teases" because we really can't be sure if he's being serious or not about this.

Following last week's epically-romantic episode of The Office, a promo ran claiming a new boss for Dunder Mifflin had been found - Will Ferrell.

People were skeptical, especially when there are serious rumors stating that he actually won't be the new boss and confirmed intel insisting that he's only signed on for a four-episode stint. However, adding to the mystery was Will's comments to a reporter last night at the first ever Comedy Awards that his Office gig was slated to become "full-time." In explaining his character, he said:

"Yes, I’m taking over. My character’s name is Deangelo Vickers, he loves the American Southwest, and he’s just kind of in his own way going to step into Michael Scott’s shoes and try to fill them. I’m friends with Steve and a fan of the show, and I just selfishly wanted to do one episode with him, and they pitched multiple ones, and I said, ‘That’d be great.’”

Then, when pressed further on the longevity of the role, Will told the source it has turned into a "regular, full-time gig.”

Joke? Fact? Honesty? Lies? We just don't know!!!

These guys are being very crafty about this whole new boss thing and we wouldn't be a the least bit surprised if Will was 100% lying to the reporter about this.

Still…perhaps he's not! Damn you and your mind games!!!

    I miss Steve Carell but interested in what Ferrell will do. Ferrell is always interesting like an overgrown kid should be.

    I'm sorry, but if he joins the show full time I will be forced to stop watching. I've never been a fan of his overdone, in-your-face humor.



  3. 3

    That's so STUPID:( No one can replace Michael…



  4. 4

    I hope he's lying because I REALLY want Will Arnett. I feel he's a better fit for the show, much as I love Will Ferrell. Sorry - I'm casting my vote for Arnett.

    If Will Ferrell was on The Office, I might actually watch it. LOVIN' THE FERRELL!!! (Cowbell)
