Will FerrellFrom TV Squad: Has Will Ferrell found a new job on television? As Steve Carell prepares to bid farewell to the Scranton branch of Dunder Mifflin, it's been announced that his 'Anchorman' co-star is joining the cast of 'The Office'

According to Deadline, Ferrell has signed on for a four-episode arc. Although NBC hasn't said when his episodes will air, it has confirmed that he "has committed to one episode beyond Carell's finale, to help create a bridge."

Ferrell, who's a big fan of 'The Office,' apparently called up the producers and offered his services as a way of commemorating his good buddy Carell's departure. He'll play a Dunder Mifflin branch manager from the home office who, according to NBC, is "just as inappropriate" as Steve Carell's Michael Scott character.

Could his character be leading the search for Scott's replacement? Or could he be Scott's replacement?
