After nine seasons, The Office will come to an end this spring. The event is not going unacknowledged or uncelebrated by the cast of the series. In fact, John Krasinksi, who plays Jim Halpert on the show, has produced a 10-episode webseries, which pays tribute to the series by revisiting some of the show's guest stars from throughout its near-decade-long run.
The first video features an actor who's no stranger to fun little web videos. Will Ferrell played Deangelo Vickers, the wacky replacement boss who didn't last very long at Dunder Mifflin Scranton. In addition to some of the highlights and lowlights of Vickers' brief run on the NBC comedy series, we're also treated to the sight of Ferrell, sporting his best Ron Burgundy 'stache, shoveling salad into his mouth from a giant bowl. EW points out that the lunch part wasn't planned.
Ferrell offers some funny commentary on his role in the show, and those of us who are sad to see The Office go will likely appreciate all of these videos as they continue to roll out ahead of the finale next month (Thursday, May 16). Future videos will feature other guest stars from the series, as well as "some longtime Dunder Mifflin favorites," though no specific names were mentioned beyond that.
On the subject of guest stars, Roseanne Barr will appear in tomorrow night's episode, titled "Stairmageddon." Here's a look at her character:
EVERYONE IS UPSET WHEN THE ELEVATOR GOES OUT OF SERVICE—ROSEANNE BARR GUEST STARS—“Stairmaggedon” strikes the office when the elevator goes out and everyone is forced to take the stairs.
