The Office Proposal Episode and Teaser for Will Ferrell Joining Cast

Will Ferrell Will join The Office when it resumes in two weeks on Thursday April 7th. He will join the cast for just four episodes during the transition from Michael leaving Scranton. Last night was the "proposal" episode - where Michael Scott (Steve Carrell) proposed to Holly. The way the proposal done was cute and touching. Holly's Dad isn't doing well so she decided to move back to Colorado, where Michael will join her. This is where Ferrell will come into the mix. He will join the cast for a few episodes towards the end of this season - leading up to Steve Carrell's final episode on April 28th. They ran the teaser last night at the very end of the episode. It was reported a few months ago Ferrell would come aboard for four episodes.

Yep, Donald Trump is among the legion of Americans called "birthers" who doubt Obama's legitimacy as an American citizen. Trump said he has thought about a run for President in 2012. If he's going the "birther" route, he can forget about having any chance. The nutjob Tea Partiers may vote for him, but that's about it.
