Will Ferrell cameos are usually some of the best out there, as he seems to really run with it every time. Do you remember what you thought when he came down the stairs in WEDDING CRASHERS? I do. I, along with the rest of the theater, began cheering and laughing. Subsequently, that cameo ended up being one of the highlights of the film.

It looks like he has another high profile guest spot coming up soon, this time in the TV world. He will be joining a four episode arc at the end of the season as a way to lead up to Carell's departure from the show.

Ferrell will be playing a branch manager who will share a similar wit and level of professional competence as that of Michael Scott. Seems like a really good fit for Ferrell, and it should be very entertaining to watch them play off of each other.

Ferrell is supposed to show up for one post Steve Carell episode, one can only imagine it will be to tie everything back together. Now the big question is if the show will keep it's charm going into the next seasons. Either way, putting Ferrell into the mix should make it a little easier for us to accept.
