As Steve Carell begins his swan song as head of Scranton's most unusual workplace on 'The Office,' it looks likes Will Ferrell may step in to take over -- permanently.

According to UsMagazine.com, the funnyman hinted he might stay at the Scranton branch longer than his scheduled four-episode arc, which begins with the April 14 episode. He admitted it's "looking good" for him to join the series after Carell's exit.

Ferrell, who will reportedly step in as temporary branch manager after Carell's Michael Scott leaves the show, claims he has what it takes to fill his friend's shoes. He revealed, however, he does have some changes in mind should he join the series regularly.

"I'd throw it out the window," he joked about the whole outline of the show. "I don't know what they were thinking when they originally cast [Carell]. No, I shouldn't say that!"
