Maura TierneyMaura Tierney is getting back in the comedy game. After playing some very drama-heavy roles on 'ER,' 'Rescue Me' and 'The Whole Truth,' the 'NewsRadio' veteran will guest star on an episode of 'The Office.'

According to Zap2It, Tierney will play Robert California's wife.

"I'm a big fan of hers," 'Office' showrunner Paul Lieberstein told Zap2It. "I'm very excited."

So far she's only contracted for one episode, but maybe if we wish really hard she'll become a recurring character!
