Oh, boy! This is going to be nuts!

When The Office returns in a few weeks, Will Ferrell will be beginning his four-episode stint as Deangelo Vickers, the replacement of Michael Scott (played by Steve Carrell) and the actor recently opened up about the strange character, and how he'll fit into Michael's departure from the series!

He said:

"[The show's producers] Paul [Lieberstein] and Greg [Daniels] came to sit down with me and I just said, 'I love the show's writing so much that I just trust you guys - why don't you just take a stab at whatever you feel is a good fit?' From that first episode that I'm in, they created, in the style of The Office, this eccentric, bizarre character. Me and Michael Scott, we hit it off immediately. We're birds of the same feather. And then, in a very Michael Scott way, he slowly starts to resent me because everyone's just kissing up to me. Slowly, you see in my character that maybe I'm not as good as Michael Scott and am pretty much a weirdo. Everyone's looking at each other going, 'Oh no, we had it so good! We didn't even know it. We knew we had a friend in Michael Scott but we didn't realize, in his backwards way, what a good manager he was'."

LOLz! Nice!

Sounds about perfect for the brief arc - and the perfect foil for Michael, which will reinforce for the employees why they all love him so much!

And, of course, his exit will help pave the way for one of the many possible successors to become the new head of Dunder Mifflin!

But who shall it be?! Who do U think should replace Steve on The Office??

    will ferrell's schtick is tired and old

    Why do they have to milk something forever, instead of just ending it gracefully? Carrell was that show, and it has pretty much run its course.

    CANNOT WAIT. WILL FERRELL IS HYSTERICAL AND I THINK HE WOULD DEFINATELY MAKE THE SHOW LIVE ON

    I think Deangelo will replace Michael, but only for a short period. Then the REAL replacement will come in..
