Will Ferrell begins his guest appearance on The Office beginning Thursday on KETK. Ferrell is playing the role of temporarily replacing the boss Michael Scott (played by Steve Carell) in the Dunder Mifflin's Scranton office. Steve Carell will be leaving The Office at the end of the season.

In a couple of clips that have hit the NBC site, Will Ferrell's character has a debilitating peanut allergy and claims to be just as comfortable at a ball game as being at the office.
