In a recent interview with TV Guide Network's "Hollywood 411," Will Ferrell was asked about his four-episode guest appearance on "The Office" and if that might turn into a more permanent position on the show after Steve Carell leaves this season.

"You know, we're talking about it," Ferrell said. "It would be a cool thing. We're just seeing."

Ferrell joins a long list of actors rumored to be replacing Carell. Harvey Keitel, Will Arnett, and series creator Ricky Gervais were all rumored at one point to be joining the cast.

Producers for "The Office" have indicated that Ferrell may be joking about his future with the show.
