It looks like we haven’t seen the last of David Brent on The Office. The star of the original British show, Ricky Gervais, is poised to make another cameo on the season finale of the seventh season airing May 19. And he’s also bringing along… Gob?
I can assure you that this is no trick. Or illusion. Will Arnett will also be making an appearance at the end of the season. Whoa, whoa, whoa, hold your horses. This doesn’t mean that Gervais or Arnett will be taking Michael Scott’s position. It just means that they will be in the episode. Even though Gervais has said that he thinks Arnett would be the best replacement. And Gervais is an executive producer on the show. And created the original. So he has no say in the process whatsoever.
Now, let’s think about this. Is it a good idea having Arnett on there? Absolutely. He’s hilarious and has the sense of humor that would work well on the series. Plus since Running Wilde got canceled (thanks for that one, guys) he has plenty of time on his hands. As for the second appearance of Gervais? That depends. His first cameo was so absolutely perfect that anything less than amazing will tarnish that memory. But I’m sure they have something great up their sleeves.
Saying anything more past this point would be pure speculation. We just don’t know what will happen until it happens. Or until someone tells us. But until then we’re going to have to wait! My theory? We’ll finally get to see the documentary that the camera crew has been working on for so long. That would explain the presence of Gervais again (he recognized the cameras and what they were doing) and Arnett has something to do with that. That’s my guess though but I have been seriously drinking since Sunday morning. We’ll just have to see. About The Office. Not my drinking. That is a given.
