Jack Black To Do That Be-De-Da-Be-Da-Do On “The Office”
NBC decided to give “The Office” the primo location of being on after the Super Bowl. The special episode will be an hour long and will feature the Dunder Mifflin employees holding a roast for their boss, Michael Scott (Steve Carell). In a shocking “30 Rock”-ish piece of stunt casting, Jack Black will guest star in this episode. According to the post from Entertainment Weakly’s Ausiello, Black will indeed be playing himself on the show.
Playing himself on the show…what does this remind me of…it sure sounds like the episode of Ricky Gervais’ “Extras” when Coldplay’s Chris Martin showed up on his sitcom. I hate to say it…but could this be the moment that “The Office” jumps the shark?
