Let me explain. The makers of the US version of The Office, which stars Steve Carrell from The Daily Show and The 40 Year Old Virgin, have a special episode planned for next season that will feature cameos by some of the cast of the British original.
In an interview with the New York Post, US executive producer Ben Silverman is quoted as saying: “Expect some cameos from the UK paper company. There’s a lot of love between the casts and crews of the two versions of the show.”
No word on which cast members will appear, although Ricky Gervais is unlikely to be one of them. He is, however, writing an episode for the US series, of which he is an exec producer.
