Will Arnett and Ricky Gervais Will Guest-Star on Office Season Finale

Back in February, Ricky Gervais blogged that Will Arnett would be a great regular on The Office. Now both Gervais and Arnett will appear in the show's season-seven, Michael Scott–free finale. (Gervais just appeared on the American version of the series for the first time in January.) Because speculating on who will replace Steve Carell has become its own little cottage industry, producers are warning that neither Arnett nor Gervais are necessarily the new boss. Still, we're now in the midst of a convoluted fantasy wherein the Bluths have purchased Dunder Miflin and Gob, his Segway, and his magic tricks descend upon The Office permanently. [Inside TV/EW]
