(well… temporarily)

To help soften the blow of Steve Carell’s departure from The Office, NBC has enlisted the help of his Anchorman co-star Will Ferrell to guest for 4 episodes in the spring; Michael Scott’s final three, and the one following his departure (which means the final three episodes of the season will have a new boss… maybe). His role is as another branch manager who visits Scranton from home office.

Exec. Producer and co-star Paul Lieberstien (he plays Toby Flenderson) says: “We found Steve Carell when he was nothing but a movie star and we turned him into a television star. 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.”
