If you fell in love with Cloris Leachman on the dance floor this Fall or when she grabbed Uncle Jesse’s behind at the Bob Saget roast (or, like me, when she replaced Edna Garrett on The Facts of Life), you’ll be happy to hear that sources tell me exclusively, Leachman is the latest big name star to sign on for The Office‘s post Super Bowl episode. EW’s Michael Ausiello was the first to report that Jack Black and Jessica Alba are also on board.
My mole says Leachman, Black and Alba are shooting their guest spots right now. However, longtime fans should not fret about the stunt casting corrupting the usual Dunder-Mifflin fun. The stars will not actually appear in the office, but rather "on-screen" in a Hollywood film that our D-M friends are watching.
Though there have been reports that a fourth "name" will be added to the mix, word is, the deal for the actor in mind did not close, therefore it’ll just be Cloris, Jack and Jess.
Thoughts? I’ll follow that Leachman broad wherever she goes, so I’m down with this. You?
