Warren Buffett will guest star on “The Office” season finale

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: This Thursday’s season finale of NBC’s “The Office” already has a billion guest stars. Why not add one more, who just so happens to be a billionaire?

Philanthropist Warren Buffett will appear on the episode as one potential replacement for Steve Carell’s office manager, Michael Scott, THR reports.

Buffett will be in good company. In addition to regular cast members like Rainn Wilson and John Krasinski, Buffett will guest star with previously announced celebs Ricky Gervais, Will Arnett, Jim Carrey, Ray Romano and James Spader. Oh yeah, and Will Ferrell’s expected to be back as current, inept supervisor Deangelo Vickers.

From the sounds of it, Buffett will make a brief cameo. He can’t be a long-term substitute, right? Then again, almost all of the people vying for Carell’s old gig – from Romano to Carrey and Ferrell – all of other full-time jobs, so I suppose Buffett has a good a shot as anyone.

Plus, if the potential replacements were measured by their bank accounts, and not by their acting prowess, then Buffett would win by a large margin.

“The Office” concludes its seventh season this Thursday on NBC.
