Will Ferrell: Office Gig May Be Permanent

Goodbye Steve Carell, hello Will Ferrell!

Will is set to make a four episode cameo on The Office, but there's a really good chance it may become a temp-to-hire situation.

His four-episode story arc starts on April 14th. He'll play an incompetent Dunder Mifflin branch manager. Sounds familiar.

But when asked if there's a chance he may replace Steve permanently he told the NY Daily News, "That’s a very distinct possibility.”

He added, “It’s looking good!”

If anyone can save the show after Steve leaves, it's Will. They have the same type of humor. He was just named the most overpaid actor in Hollywood, so maybe a transition to TV isn't such a bad idea.

What do you think of Will replacing Steve? Will you tune in?
