YouTube is now home to the ressurection of David Brent, the starring character of the original verison of The Office, a landmark British show that essentially launched Ricky Gervais’ career in television and film (as well spawning the much-beloved American version). Whether YouTube’s efforts at drawing original content for their native channels will ultimately pay off competitively is yet to be clear, but it seems a certainty that devotees of David Brent (in the interests of full disclosure, this includes at least a couple of us) will be grateful for the effort. source

Dan Snierson reports that Carrey will guest star as someone who interviews for the management post that is being vacated by Michael Scott (the departing Steve Carell)—and seemingly handed over to Deangelo Vickers (Will Ferrell).
Carrey won’t be the only celebrity vying for the job; Ricky Gervais, Will Arnett, James Spader, Ray Romano, and Catherine Tate also play potential replacements in the hourlong episode, which airs May 19. An NBC spokesperson would not comment.
Wow, they’re so screwing with the audience of “The Office” with these possible cast members. We hope that Dwight also applies and beats all of them.
