Ferrell to the Office!

Will Ferrell is The Office's latest sign, jumping on board for the final 4 episodes of this season.  Ferrell will be reuniting with his Anchorman counterpart Steve Carell (Brick) for three episodes, and one episode following Carell's early exit from the show.  Kind of makes you wonder if the show will be coming back with Ferrell, someone else like Ricky Gervais, or not at all. 

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”, said Paul Lieberstein, the Executive Producer of the show who also plays Toby.

In the past The Office has been tricky so I'm not prepared to rule out Ricky Gervais as the next, and original Scranton Branch Manager.  It's possible that Ferrell is just there for ratings and to throw the show's fans off of the fact that Gervais only appeared in the very beginning of this week's episode where he and Michael Scott adored each other's similarities.  Only time will tell what's to come for The Office.
