Oh Boy, Is Will Arnett the New Michael Scott?


Will Arnett, previously teased by Ricky Gervais as his choice for Steve Carell’s successor, is officially appearing on the hour-long season finale of the show alongside Gervais. Entertainment Weekly’s sources “warn that one shouldn’t assume that just because Gervais and Arnett are in the finale, that either is going to replace Carell next season as the Office boss,” but that sounds like some pretty soft ass-covering to me. Man, I can’t really think of anyone better to replace Carell than Arnett. He’d bring so much to a role like that, making it uniquely his own, and getting to see him in a sitcom every week again would be amazing. Here’s hoping!
