Will Ferrell Joins The Office

I don’t know why this hasn’t happened earlier! Will Ferrell is joining the cast of The Office!

According to Deadline, Ferrell will come on board right around the time they’re starting to phase out Steve Carell’s character Michael Scott. Tear…

Ferrell will play a branch manager who comes from the home office and is just as inappropriate as Michael Scott.

"We found Steve Carell when he was nothing but a movie star, and we turned him into a television star," executive producer Paul Lieberstein says. "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."

I’m torn on this one—Will is going to be such a hilarious addition to the already-genius cast, but I know it’s not going to last forever, which really pisses me off!

I also don’t know if I can watch a Michael Scott-free The Office next year. It’s just not right! Pony up some more freaking money to your stars, NBC!
