Will Ferrell will join The Office when Steve Carell leaves. Ferrell will be guest-starring in the TV series in a four episode arc near the end of the season, according to Huffington Post.
I love Will Ferrell! The man can read the phone book and make it funny. He could. Steve Carell’s gig on The Office is ending and his replacement at Dunder Mifflin is still a mystery. So it looks like Will Ferrell will fill the gap after Carell leaves.
Ferrell and Carell are friends IRL. The two actors worked together in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy.
Will Ferrell’s future cast members are giving him the the same treatment they give each other. In other words, The Office cast is totally razzing Ferrell. Paul Lieberstein (Toby) talked about the new addition to the series:
“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.”
