We all know that ‘The Office‘ is going to look pretty different next year, what with Mindy Kaling and James Spader departing, Paul Lieberstein stepping down as show-runner, Ed Helms, John Krasinski and B.J. Novak all taking on reduced roles, and Dwight potentially spinning off, but who’s going to actually join the ensemble? We also knew that Catherine Tate would join ‘The Office’ season 9 as a new series regular, but the latest reported to join Dunder-Mifflin is a pretty ‘Kick-Ass‘ former ‘Greek’ star.
TVLine reports that ‘Kick-Ass’ and ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ star Clark Duke is in talks to join ‘The Office’ season 9 as a new series regular, filling the ranks among some of the departing cast. No details of ‘Duke’s character are known at the moment, other than that he’d work at the show’s central Dunder-Mifflin.
Apart from his film career, Duke previously maintained a recurring role on ABC Family’s college series ‘Greek.’ Duke also appeared in the first season of ‘New Girl‘ as Cliff, awkwardly inappropriate assistant to Lizzy Caplan’s Julia.
So, what do we all think? Whatever his role may be, what will Clark Duke bring to ‘The Office’ Season 9? A new everyman character to replace the tired Jim Halpert? Baby-faced Gabe’s younger brother? Tell us what you’d like to see from ‘The Office’ season 9 in the comments!
