Quote of the Day: Steve Carell on Why He Didn’t Return to ‘The Office’

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, The Office, News,

Steve Carell

"I figured the character would go back and visit everybody, but he wouldn't do it on camera at this point. I think he had grown past the idea of being in the documentary, that was my take on it... I just thought, yeah, he'd go back and visit, but he wouldn't want the camera crew to be documenting it."

- Former Office star Steve Carell explains why he won't be appearing in the show's series finale on May 16.

Will Ferrell Dishes on His ‘Office’ Character

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, The Office, Gossip,

Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, The OfficeWill Ferrell finally spilled some spoilers from his Office appearance, which will begin this week on NBC. Ferrell will be around for four episodes to help fill the gap that will be left when Michael Scott (Steve Carell) leaves the show.

“My character’s name is Deangelo Vickers,” he revealed to Entertainment Weekly. “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.”

Ferrell is well-known to NBC viewers after his 7-season stint on SNL. But, he had a bigger reason for joining the cast of The Office, however briefly. “I’m friends with Steve [Carell] and a fan of show, and I just selfishly wanted to do one episode with him, and they pitched multiple ones, and I said, ‘that’d be great.’” And we think so too.

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Comedy, Prime Time, NBC, The Office, Video,

There's only one other person who could probably appreciate Michael Scott's humor as much as Holly Flax does -- and that's his UK counterpart David Brent.

On last night's episode of , Ricky Gervais -- the star and the co-creator of the British version -- made his first appearance in Dunder Mifflin territory.

Although Gervais' run-in with Steve Carell was hilarious (as expected), his brief cameo had us dreaming of Brent/Scott partnership. Oh, the possibilities ...

I guess Will Ferrell-lead office will just have to suffice.
