Martin Freeman [aka "Tim Canterbury"] to join NBC’s The Office

31st Mar 12 (Sat) Leave a comment Go to comments

British actor Martin Freeman [the new Sherlock, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Office] is poised to appear in the 8th Season Finale of NBC’s The Office as Tim Canterbury (reprising this character from the original BBC show).  Some key plot-points are TOP SECRET, but an immediate bonding with John Krasinski’s character Jim Halpert will not be maintained for long.

Executive producers and creators of the show, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, said this in an NBC press release:

It makes sense and, in a way, brings the story full circle.  Without giving away too much, [Tim] will wrangle Jim out of a job [early next season], which will open up a ‘Jim & Pam spin-off’ that we’re planning for 2014.

The Season Finale air date has yet to be announced by NBC.  Watch Season Eight “on demand” NOW.

    haha… yeah, it is a bit shark jumpy, especially the last season (w/o Steve Carrell).

    FYI, the post above was an April Fools joke…
