For someone who hasn't watched The Office since around the time Pam broke off her engagement with Roy (wait, you mean she's married to Jim and
they have a kid??), the recent rumors being battered about regarding the
show's future have me surprisingly giddy. Those rumors being the best-case-scenario that Ricky Gervais may be taking David Brent across
the pond to replace Steve Carell when he departs following this season
in favor of the opulent pastures of Hollywood.
It could not be more perfect that Idris Elba, who so memorably portrayed Stringer Bell on The Wire for three seasons, will be starting his arc as the new suit from Dunder Mifflin's corporate headquarters tonight. After all, Stringer Bell went to business school, founded a co-op for Baltimore's drug dealers, and conducted meetings according to Robert's Rules of Order.
