There are a few rumors circulating surrounding The Office’s season finale. Will Arnett has signed on to guest star in May 19 season finale of The Office. Does this mean that he is the new boss? He will be if Ricky Gervais has anything to say about it.
Back in February Gervais publicly endorsed Arnett for the top Office job. “Had a little meeting with NBC about various things,” he wrote on his personal blog, “and recommended Will Arnett for a regular in The Office. Thoughts? I think he’s amazing.”
NBC is also confirming that Gervais will reprise his David Brent role in the season finale. In case you aren’t aware, Gervais was in the opening of the January 27th episode.
Sources have told EW 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.
It will be interesting to see what roles Gervais and Arnett will play. As for who will be the new boss? I really don’t want it to be Arnett. I know a lot of people love him from his roles on Arrested Development and Running Wilde, but I’m not a fan of him at all.
