The problem with comedians is you can’t be sure if they’re pulling your leg or not. Take Will Ferrell who’s talked about joining the American version of The Office on a full-time basis.
The Anchor Man actor has already signed on to guest-star in four episodes of the series, but he could extend his stay? Chatting to Ew.com the star said, “Yes, I’m taking over. My character’s name is Deangelo Vickers, he loves the American Southwest, and he’s just kind of in his own way going to step into Michael Scott’s shoes and try to fill them. I’m friends with Steve and a fan of the show, and I just selfishly wanted to do one episode with him, and they pitched multiple ones, and I said, ‘That’d be great.’” When asked if he’d be like to be a permanent cast-member he said, “Yeah, a regular, full-time gig.”
A source close to the actor also revealed that Will’s schedule has been cleared to fit in filming for the comedy series, while rumour has it that the show’s producers have filmed different ending for Will’s character to leave the door open for a possible return.
We’re fairly certain Will’s joking around but he’d make a perfect replacement for Steve Carell, don’t you think?
