    Hasn't "Jim" already been in several big movies? I think he could do good.
    Is it over yet? #ITMFA

    I liked him in Away We Go. Although the critics panned it, I thought it was cute.
    These cuts are leaving creases. Trace the scars to fit the pieces, to tell the story, you don't need to say a word.

    i think the main complaint against him is that he's always gonna play a "jim" like character... didn't see Away We Go but thats the impression I got from the previews

    steve leaves... finish it on a high. no shark jumping.
    It already jumped the shark when Jim and Pam had a kid

    kind of agree. those two characters ruined the show

    Nice, now get rid of jim and pam


    Will Ferrell has committed to a four-episode arc on NBC's comedy The Office. He will play a branch manager who comes from the home office and is just as inappropriate as Steve Carell's Michael Scott character. NBC is still figuring out exactly when the episodes will air, but Ferrell has committed to one episode beyond Carell’s finale, to help create a bridge.

    There are rumours that kiwi Rhys Dary (Flight of the Concords) will guest star to possibly take over from Steve. If he does I will definitely start watching again, he is one funny dude!

    I heard that rumor too. I have also heard harvey keitel.

    I think craig robinson would be a quality choice. He is severely underutilized on that show. I think he's funny as hell

    Seems my prediction in June was somewhat correct...

    Will Ferrell to visit 'The Office' for an arc

    NEW YORK – Will Ferrell is coming to "The Office."
    Ferrell will play a visiting branch manager over an arc of several episodes. NBC announced the casting Wednesday with the promise that Ferrell's character will be "just as inappropriate" as Steve Carell's Michael Scott.
    Carell's farewell is expected four episodes before the season finale of "The Office." In preparation of his exit, NBC is bringing in high-profile guests, including "The Office" creator Ricky Gervais, reprising his role as David Brent.
    Gervais will make a cameo in Thursday's episode, which airs at 9 p.m. EST.



    I think it could go on because his character is part of what is killing the show. Too over the top and not very funny or amusing story lines. Too many dead end stories with the merger. Dwight can't run the office that would get old fast. Bring in Will Ferrell to lead a re-organization a la office space and trim the fat and keep those who are good. Breathe some new life in with some new leadership in the office.

    I'm sad to see Steve go, his character is so over the top though, makes me shake my head at just about everything he does and makes me wonder why he wasn't fired years ago (the character, not Steve)

    I really like Ricky Gervais and can't wait to see how they write him in as well as Will Ferrell.
  • i don't think i'd watch it if he left
    he's the only character whose stayed funny and i actually want to watch
    the others, while i still love 'em, have become a bit boring (pam and jim especially)
    so i don't really see the point without him

    but Dwight on the other hand, is hilarious
  • he IS the damn show. without him, the show is done. and honestly, the first 3 seasons were great, now it's barely a laugh to be had. Carrell is smart to leave now.

    yeah...first few were great...then got a little too awkward/not funny...rebounded a bit last year....but this year has been horrible with just a few exceptions. i don't see it lasting long at all without michael scott.

    i will say tonight's episode was absolutely hilarious though. kevin's speech/puking scene had me crying :lol:

    looking forward to ferrell's episodes.

    i thought it was one of the best of the season....and it was geared around a seminar designed to boost andy's sales. so it was work-stuff.

    but i do agree, the show is evolved away from what made it so great, the mundane occurances of life in an office all day.

    I think they should probably just end the series. It really went downhill after season 3. Once the female characters all start getting pregnant, you know the writers are running out of ideas.

    most marriages end within the first year after having a kid. that combined with working literally 2 feet away from each other every day should cause friction in their marriage. the show should exploit that and make them go through a divorce/seperation. that could make for some funny/uncomfortable situations. they won't though.

    as much as it sucks, i understand why the show went the direction they did with jim and pam. you have to appeal to a mass audiences to get ratings and ultimately stay on the air. weddings/romances/kids are usually ratings gold because they reel in the chick demographic.

    as great as the office is/was, it could have been so much better on cable.

    off the top of my head the only show on broadcast network that succeeded without any of that mushy stuff was seinfeld. i'm sure there's others though...

    yeah the scrabble thing was funny. i like gabe's character. what a weirdo. at the end when andy gave his girl (cant think of her name right now) a copy of shrek 2 ("there's a second shrek?" :lol: ).....he just says something under his breath like "oh, haha, what a nice guy...." :lol:

    I think it has been pretty strong so far this season. I'd kinda like to see it go out on a high note after this season, but thats just not how the TV business works. Not really sure how it will work without Michael Scott...it all depends on who they replace him with.
