Will Ferrell The Office Recruit

Actor Will Ferrell has recently decided to continue his comedic talents, and lend them to the television show ‘The Office’, which will soon be announcing a replacement for the main character, played by Steve Carell.

Carell and Ferrell have been friends for quite awhile, and the two are set to finish out the season of ‘The Office’ together, with Ferrell playing a branch manager who is overseeing the departure of Carell’s character.

Paul Lieberstein, who is the show runner as well as an actor on the series (Lieberstien plays Toby), recently said, “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.”

The two actors have often found themselves in competition for the same roles, with Carell trying out for ‘Saturday Night Live’ and claiming that he did not get the part, only because Ferrell beat him to it.

The two also starred in ‘Bewitched’ together, as well as ‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy’.

Ferrell will take over ‘The Office’ for at least four episodes, according to reports.
