British cast to appear on American version of The Office

the office bbcSome of the American characters on NBC's The Office are going to come face-to-face with their British alter-egos! American executive producer Ben Silverman says next season we can expect to see Mackenzie Crook, who played Gareth; Martin Freeman, who played Tim; and Lucy Davis, who played Dawn on the American version of the show. These are essentially the alter egos to Dwight, Jim, and Pam. I think I'm most excited to see Dwight butt heads with militaristic Gareth, but I know my heart will be torn between Jim and Tim!

Unfortunately, show creator Ricky Gervais is not scheduled to appear on the next season of The Office. Too bad. I can only imagine the wonderfully uncomfortable conversation between David Brent and Michael Scott (Steve Carell).

Hey Brandon, the link you provided says that Gervais and Merchant will be WRITING and DIRECTING an episode of the American "Office", not acting in one. So the above article is correct; Ricky Gervais will not be appearing in the episode.

This may be the most awesomly unexpected thing I've seen since I found out The Loop was renewed. I mean, seriously, did anyone other than me enjoy, nay, watch The Loop.

I presume they going to appear as their British characters?
