In a joke that Michael Scott would surely enjoy, Steve Carell attempted to trick The Office fans into thinking the show was coming back.
On Wednesday, Carell momentarily set Twitter ablaze with his tweet that the hit NBC show was returning, minutes later following up by saying it was a typo and he was actually referring to another Must See TV show, Will & Grace, which NBC and the stars of that show announced earlier in the day will be making a comeback later this year for a 10-episode revival.
Carell starred on the U.S. adaptation of The Office for seven seasons as Michael Scott, the incompetent, but good-natured Regional Manager of Dundler Mifflin’s Scranton division. For his portrayal, he earned six Emmy nominations and won a Golden Globe.
NOT FUNNY STEVE.
