Brits set to invade The Office!

Now this is cool. I'm a huge fan of NBC's sitcom The Office, which, as I'm sure many of you are keenly aware but wholy unexperienced with, is based upon a BBC show of the same name. This British version follows the same docu-style format and even drier comedy (to be assumed, they are British afterall) than the Carrell-lead American version. The American version's character are all largely based on British counterparts, but have different names. And now, these British alter-egos are going to be coming stateside next season. It's going to be like Bizarro World, but without the red capes and blue tights. Cor Blimey!

British cast to appear on American version of The Office - TV Squad:
Some of the American characters on NBC's The Office are going to come face-to-face with their British alter-egos! American executive producer Ben Silverman says next season we can expect to see Mackenzie Crook, who played Gareth; Martin Freeman, who played Tim; and Lucy Davis, who played Dawn on the American version of the show. These are essentially the alter egos to Dwight, Jim, and Pam."

As an addendum, you may also notice that Mackenzie Crook (Dwight's alter-ego Gareth) is the pirate with the wooden eye from Pirates of the Caribbean. He is hilarious.
