Variety reports that Warren Buffett will appear on The Office Season 7 finale:

NBC confirmed the billionaire investor will make a cameo in Thursday’s episode, interviewing for the job as a replacement to Michael Scott…

Buffett enlisted the “Office” cast for a skit shown in April at the annual shareholders meeting for his company, Berkshire Hathaway. Carell appeared in the skit, in which Buffett pretends to take over for Michael Scott as the head of the Scranton branch of fictional “Office” company Dunder Mifflin.

  1. Ricky Gervais AND Will Arnett? As Michael would say, my head just exploded!

    Their presence, to me, suggests that it’s a strong possibility one of them will either replace Michael or become a notable character. Arnett seems more likely to me at this point, but I can’t really predict where it’s going.

    This alleviates my anticipated post-Michael stress disorder a little. :)

  2. Awesome news. I would be happy with either Arnett or Gervais. Somewhat more happy with Gervais though, since he created the office, and David Brent is awesome.

    I can see myself enjoying Will Arnett running Scranton though.

  3. I think EW is just recycling old rumors. I doubt either one shows up on the finale.

  4. Amazing! The possibility of Gob Bluth as the next boss at Dunder Mifflin is so awesome. I doubt Ricky Gervais will take the helm, but I’m definitely down for Will Arnett being a series regular. He’ll fit right in.

  5. Woah woah woah woah! Sounds amazing, although Gervais should definitely NOT replace Steve, but I would LOVE for Will Arnett to be the new guy in charge. I WOULD LOVE IT, I SAY!!!

  6. I just can NOT see Gervais taking the time to become a regular on the show but I also can’t see how he’ll fit in in another episode…interesting.

    But Arnett? Bi-winning!

  7. After David Brent asked Michael, “Any jobs going?” I could definitely see him at least interviewing for the job! But I agree, it should just be a guest appearance. Will Arnett, though…I’d like it.

  8. Also, any guesses as to what actors/characters the “other notable guest stars” will be? Kathy Bates is confirmed, right?

  9. Total win win win situation going on here. Awesome. I’d love either one becoming a regular but would prefer Arnett. Gervais is free to make all the cameos he wants though. I’m so unbelievably excited!

    Just make Arnett a regular and nobody else, have some more Gervais guest appearances, and season 8 is looking pretty freaking fantastic.

  10. I think David Brent will be sort of a lead-in for Will’s character, who I think will be the official replacement of Michael Scott (although nothing can replace him).

  11. Hasn’t Ricky been saying Will Arnett would be the best replacement for Steve before?

    I cannot wait for the rest of the series to air! So excited! This news, plus more guests to be announced, and four episodes with Will Ferrell!

  12. I loved Will Arnett on Arrested Development, but I hope he’s not going to be a regular on The Office. That so doesn’t work for me. Who next, Emily Blunt? :-/

  13. 5/Roy’s Mugshot – It looks like in this case the rumours are true. Hollywood Reporter says it has “confirmed” the news.

    It makes sense in a way, since Ricky championed Will Arnett to join the show permanently. This is sort of an opportunity to publicly back his horse by having them both appear in the finale. I think Will Arnett is great and he’s Canadian – so double yay!
