Will Ferrell will be guest starring on The Office for a four episode guest spot during Steve Carrell’s final episodes, says Deadline:
He will play a branch manager who comes from the home office and is just as inappropriate as Steve Carell’s Michael Scott character. NBC is still figuring out exactly when the episodes will air, but Ferrell has committed to one episode beyond Carell’s finale, to help create a bridge.
Apparently Ferrell contacted THEM wanting to guest star, which is incredibly cool.
This should be an interesting Anchorman reunion; David Koechner has done some guest spots on The Office as well - maybe they could get him back and drag Paul Rudd in for one magic moment. All of a sudden I’m willing to watch this show again.
