Will Ferrell to Appear on The Office

With the final season for The Office star Steve Carell heading into its final stretch NBC is pulling out all the stops to make it a true event. Will Ferrell, who co-starred with Carell in Anchorman, has signed on for a four episode arc. Ferrell will play a branch manager from the home office who somehow is just as inappropriate as Michael Scott.

The question as to who will take over the lead role following Carell’s departure is still very much a mystery. Apparently at least one of the episodes with Ferrell will come once Carell is gone in an effort to support the show during the transition period.
