Watch the Sneak Peak Here!
Dunder Mifflin, say hello to your new boss. His name is Deangelo Vickers.
Will Ferrell, who was teased as Michael Scott's replacement on "The Office" last Thursday, gave Entertainment Weekly the details about his sure to be zany character.
“My character’s name is Deangelo Vickers, 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 said. "I’m friends with Steve [Carell] and a fan of the show, and I just selfishly wanted to do one episode with him, and they pitched multiple ones, and I said, ‘That’d be great.’”
Ferrell also hinted that he may take over full time, but it's unlikely; right now, he's signed up for the final four episodes of the season. Still, the possibility remains; the show has yet to announce a new, regular boss.
Carell is leaving the show after seven hit seasons; he announced his exit in June, 2010.
