According to Entertainment Weekly, Will Ferrell will make a stop in Scranton for a four-episode arc later this season, playing a branch manager who arrives from the home office and proves to be just as inept as Michael Scott.
“The Office” executive producer Paul Lieberstein had some choice words about the movie star:
“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.”
The four episodes will run three episodes with Carell, and then one episode after he has left the show.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â And if you remember, series creator Ricky Gervais will make a brief cameo on this Thursday’s episode, but it’s been reported that if you blink, you’ll miss it…
