The Office Taps Stephen Colbert for Scary Past Altering Role
If The Office were to somehow, quite miraculously, become astronomically popular again, I think we may have found a potential candidate for a future regional manager of the Dunder Mifflin Scranton branch: Stephen Colbert! Now, I know that may sound a tad on the crazy side, but just hear me out. Both Steve Carell and Ed Helms spent time on The Daily Show before coming to star in The Office, and while Colbert may be captaining his own ship on The Colbert Report, we must remember he also got his start on The Daily Show. Since both Carell and Helms have become managers, it was only a matter of time before Colbert gets his chance! And just to make my clearly off base theory sound vaguely credible, Colbert has just landed a guest-starring role on the final season of The Office. Ha!
As reported by EW, Colbert will make a splash onto the show’s ninth and final season during the Halloween-themed episode. He’ll be playing one of the members of Andy’s former a capella group, Here Comes Treble. It turns out Andy doesn’t really get along with Colbert’s character, Broccoli Rob – I’m assuming that’s a nickname of some sort, one with a hilarious story behind it. The two, while technically old friends, are still bitter rivals. Broccoli Rob will be be stirring the pot in the Oct. 25 episode by sharing a different version of Here Comes Treble’s past. Perhaps a new history in which Andy isn’t so prominent?
I don’t honestly think Colbert would ever take on a full-time gig on The Office. That just wouldn’t work with his commitment to The Colbert Report. At the very least, he’ll be able to add a bit of fun to the floundering series. It may have a slightly less wacky feel to it in its final season, thanks to the return of Greg Daniels as showrunner, but the effort seems a too little too late at this point.
