We’re admittedly wary of any “Office” not headed up by Steve Carell’s now iconic Michael Scott. But if the show is on its way out after he departs this season, it’s not going quietly: Will Ferrell has signed on to play a new Dunder Mifflin manager for four episodes of the NBC comedy, reports Deadline.com.

“We found Steve Carell when he was nothing but a movie star and we turned him into a television star,” jokes exec producer Paul Lieberstein. “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.”

On the one hand, we’re psyched to see the former “Anchorman” co-stars try to outdo each other in the lovably toxic fishbowl that is Dunder Mifflin. On the other, we’re not sure we can handle Ferrell and Dwight on the same payroll.
