'The Office': Two new clips from Will Ferrell's first episode

We still don’t know which Will Ferrell is going to show up at Dunder Mifflin Scranton next week, when the comedian’s four-episode arc on The Office begins — but these two new clips from Ferrell’s first episode, “Training Day,” do help flesh out his character. Michael Scott’s temporary (or not-so-temporary) replacement is a genial dude named Deangelo Vickers who loves the American southwest, has to live with a debilitating peanut allergy (“It’s a part of me”), and proclaims that he’s “just as comfortable at a ball game as I am at the opera” — a declaration that provokes utter contempt in Dwight. He’s also kind of a fox … at least in the eyes of Kelly, who clearly has a thing for non-Michael men in positions of power (Charles Miner, anyone?). Watch the clips below, then tell us: How do you think Ferrell will fare on The Office?

    It looks like it’s gonna be a more subtle Will Ferrell. Which I don’t mind, we don’t need Michael Scott 2.0.

    • Zoe

      I’m all for a more subtle Will Ferrell in this context. A little worried about that, actually I have a hard time tolerating the extreme loopiness in some of his flicks! But both of these clips are good signs. Love the meet cute!

    • Mel

      The Office won’t be the same without Michael Scott.

  • amie

    I dont think anyone could ever truly replace Steve but it is going to be fun watching Will and others try. Can’t wait!

  • Jason

  • Kyle

    agree with amie. i am going to miss Steve C, but I do look forward to Will F on the show.

  • murley

    a meet cute. hilarious.

  • Sarah

    It will be very sad to see Steve Carrell part from the show, because he really does make The Office the hilarious show it has become, however, I still look forward to seeing Will Ferrell do his thing. He’s going to be great.

  • Ed

    The 2nd video had a load problem the first time I tried it. I refreshed the page, and it came up fine the second time.

  • Deb

    I hate it when they change the main star of a show like this but it should be ok- I think…at least I’m willing to give it a try since i just love that show

  • Barb

    So much of the show was centered around the Michael Scott character that the audience knew all his habits, hangups,foubles, etc. It’s going to take awhile to get in sync with the new manager and how others act toward him. I mean Michael’s distain for Toby was classic as just one example.

    • Angie

      I agree with Barb, it’s not going to be the same without Steve. He’s irreplaceable!! I’ll definitely miss his character. Not a big Ferrell fan.

  • Mike

    We need a come back from Steve Carell for the next season, men, how can you leave men? how? Our Office is so boring. The show gives humour to the very serious workplace. Without Steve, I do not know if it will work. No offence to Will Ferrel, but I find his humour to be offensive and unnatural. Steve Carell, I’ll miss the Office episodes which I watched from Season 1 episode 1 up to now(if ever you read this), which is relevantly, 3,000 minutes of my life.

    Will Farrell has pretty much renamed comedy. He is a new generation icon in the business of funny movies. Although I love him most things he does, I feel like he has gotten his hands on everything. If he is not in a funny movie, then he has come out with a movie with the same people that were in them. He is EVERYWHERE, and believe me that’s fine because he is funny, but does he really need to be in The Office too? I loved The Office because it was one funny actor I admired before the show began, Steve Carell, and a whole group of beginners who made the show raw. They were fresh faces to make a fresh start to a brand new comedy (American version), and the ratings went wild! However, I feel Farrell ruins the authenticity of the show. The Office is my show and I own all the seasons like it’s my little treasure, but if Farrell is put on, I feel the show isn’t as much “mine” anymore because Farrell is so much everyone. Even though by the clips Farrell’s character seems mild, which is what I was hoping for if he was inevitable, we already seen him so many times as that crazy, over the top character he plays so often. I feel that in the back of everyone’s mind they will be expecting him to flip a switch and become the out of control character he usually plays…even if it never happens. I feel as if it will be frustrating to keep reminding myself that he is just the “calm, semi weird”. I just really don’t want The Office to give off the feeling or image of being sold out because they brought in the big guns to make the show last. Frankly, it should have just ended, like pulling the plug on something you love, but doing it because it’s in pain…

    I was heartbroken when I learned that michael was leaving. I promised to never watch the Office again unless, by some miracle in heaven, owen wilson or will ferrell replaced him. :D
