Will Ferrell To Help The Office With Steve Carell’s Exit

Will Ferrell has committed to four episodes of the hit show The Office, according to Deadline. We are told that he will play a branch manager who comes from the home office and will be just as crazy and inappropriate as Steve Carell’s character Michael Scott.

Will is a big fan of the show and called the producers offering his support to help with Steve’s departure. Will and Steve have worked together in Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and have remained close friends ever since. There is no word as of yet when the four episodes will air.

I for one hate to see Carell leave the show because I don’t see how it can last without his character. I am however glad to see someone as funny as Will Ferrell stepping in to help out and cannot wait to see these episodes.

The Office airs Thursdays at 9:00 P.M on NBC.
