Jenna Fischer and the cast of The Office are excited for Will Ferrell’s gig on the popular sitcom.
“He’s doing a good job,” Fischer said. “Will’s on set now.”
Fischer is most excited to see Carell and Ferrell in action together.
“I think it’s going to be fun,” she said. “I’m looking forward to sort of being an audience to that.”
Farrell’s character will attempt to take over the role of Michael Scott (Steve Carrell), who is leaving the show at the end of this season.
“They don’t want us to give away too much about his character, but he does, have some scenes with Michael,” Fischer explained.
“He is going to be someone who is potentially taking over the office, so he comes in to interview and try-out for the job.”
Fisher is starring in “Hall Pass” with Christina Applegate, saying she’ love her co-star to fill Carell’s shoes at the end of the season.
“I would like Christina Applegate to come in! I saw her today and I had an epiphany and I thought it’s Christina! It should be a woman,” she said. “A woman in the position of power. And I think she would be perfect. So that’s my campaign.”
What about her character, Pam Beesly?
“Pam’s not going to be the manager,” Fisher said. “There was a rumor out there that she was going to be promoted, but, I don’t think I’m really disappointing people when I say that that’s not in her future.”
