Will Ferrell to Join Steve Carell's The Office Departure

NBC's hit sitcom, The Office is going to be getting a big shakeup later this season when Steve Carell, Michael Scott, leaves the show. To ensure the transition is as erratic as possible, Anchorman co-star Will Ferrell will be joining the cast for a total of 4 episodes. He will be playing a branch manager who is as clueless as Michael himself.

After 7 years as the district manager of Dunder Mifflin, Carell leaves the series 4 episodes before the season finale and Ferrell will join the cast 3 episodes before that, leaving one episode after Carell leaves. Speaking about Ferrell's guest role, Paul Lieberstein, executive producer, said,

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.
