TVLine Items: Office Boss Wants Arnett, CBS Eyes J.J., and Other TV News to Know
Well, if Ricky Gervais has his way, Will Arnett may be on Office duty soon enough.
In another fabulously funny installment of his personal blog, the British Office boss revealed that he’s been having “a few days of meetings and admin,” and has officially used his executive producing status on The Office to plant another Steve Carell replacement seed — maybe the best we’ve heard.
“Had a little meeting with NBC about various things,” he wrote, “and recommended Will Arnett for a regular in The Office. Thoughts? I think he’s amazing.” Agreed, he is amazing.
