Score another huge name for The Office’s upcoming finale. Producers behind the critically-acclaimed Thursday night staple have just agreed to terms with Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett for an appearance. The billionaire will be one of many interviewing for the coveted office manager role mired in uncertainty after Michael Scott’s exodus and DeAngelo Vickers’ inability to effectively lead.

There’s no word on the extent of Buffett’s role, but with Ray Romano, James Spader, Will Arnett, Jim Carrey and several others already tapped for the same double episode, it seems likely the CEO’s screen time will consist of a few scenes at most. That should prove less daunting for the non-actor but should give him enough time for a few big laughs.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, comedian Will Ferrell will also stick around for the finale, tying up any loose ends with his character DeAngelo Vickers. Ratings were down a bit last week in the first post-Steve Carell episode, but it’s likely the numbers will get a noticeable bump with heavy advertising and a bevy of guest stars.

The finale is scheduled to air on NBC on May 19th.
