The Wire star will be playing a character who will cause Michael Scott quite a lot of trouble. Promoted to Jan's old job at corporate — despite Michael's insistence that the position belongs to him — the new boss man will usher an unprecedented level of discomfort into Dunder Mifflin. And, well, word on the street is Elba's character isn't just causing that drama in New York City. No, on the contrary, he's moving in on Scranton. So, yeah, stay tuned for a hostile takeover, 'cause sources tell me it's surely in the cards…

I mean, remember when Dwight Schrute abandoned DM to go work at Staples? What's coming up will be like that. Except way bigger. I'm hearing Michael might even have a Jerry Maguire moment on his way out, and one loyal (and pretty major) employee may follow him through the door (which hits them both in the butt as they leave… not really, but you know what I mean).

So, thoughts? You ready for a possible Scranton shakeup?
