Will Ferrell Joins Dunder Mifflin

As The Office prepares for the departure of Steve Carell, they are bringing out some big guest stars to bid him farewell. Will Ferrell is set to guest star on several episodes this season. Ferrell–who co-starred with Carell in Anchorman–will play a Dunder Mifflin/Sabre manager who visits the Scranton branch. His character will be just as crazy as Micheal Scott and will somehow be instrumental in his departure. NBC hasn’t said when Ferrell’s first appearance on the show will be, but he is set to appear in four episodes. Although Ferrell has made some TV appearances on 30 Rock and HBO’s Eastbound & Down, this will be his longest TV run since he left Saturday Night Live.
