Stuff reports:

Is Murray getting a promotion?

Rhys Darby is reportedly being lined up for a role on The Office after comedian Steve Carell’s dodgy manager Michael Scott leaves the hit sitcom later this year.

Darby, famous for his role as the incompetent manager of Flight of the Conchords, is one of two heavyweights vying for a spot on the US adaptation of the British classic, according to reports.

Entertainment Weekly reported Darby had been approached to “gauge his interest” in joining the cast of The Office near the end of the seventh season.

I think Darby would be brilliant in The Office. The US version is every bit as good as the UK version (despite the first few episodes), and Darby would be a great fit for it.
