Steve Carell Denies Cameo Rumours In The Office Spinoff, Says He Got A Call From Domhnall Gleeson Asking: Should I Do This?

It is clarified that Steve Carell will not be reprising his role in the new iteration of The Office that is set to debut on the streaming platform Peacock. However, Carell did play a supportive role by encouraging Domhnall Gleeson to take on a starring role in the spinoff. The two actors previously worked together in the limited series The Patient, which premiered on FX in 2022. Carell's performance in the series earned him a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award nomination, while Gleeson received nominations at the Golden Globes and Critics' Choice Awards.

When Steve Carell Got A Call From Domhnall Gleeson

“I know Domhnall Gleeson – who I did ‘The Patient’ with – is going to be one of the leads. I know that for sure,” Carell told Jimmy Fallon during a recent interview on “The Tonight Show.” “He’s an excellent actor. And he actually called me and asked, you know, ‘Should I do this? Is this something… Did you enjoy it?’ I said, ‘Of course.'”
It has been confirmed that Domhnall Gleeson, known for his roles in films like Ex Machina and Star Wars, will be the lead actor in the upcoming The Office spinoff. Joining him in the cast is Sabrina Impacciatore, who gained recognition for her performance in Season 2 of The White Lotus.
The production of the new series is scheduled to commence in July. It's important to note that the show is not a reboot or direct spinoff of the original The Office. Instead, it will be a new mockumentary-style show set in the same universe, offering a fresh perspective with a different cast. Greg Daniels, the creator of the American version of The Office, is collaborating with Michael Koman to co-create the new series.

Steve Carell On Not Reprising His Role In The Office

Steve Carell has been consistent in his stance of not reprising his iconic role as Michael Scott in The Office. He has been vocal about his disinterest in reviving the character and bringing back the show. In a 2018 interview with Collider, Carell expressed his lack of interest in a potential return. Furthermore, he reiterated in a more recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter that he will not be appearing as Michael Scott in the new Office series.
“I will be watching but I will not be showing up,” Carell said. “It’s just a new thing and there’s really no reason for my character to show up in something like that. But I’m excited about it, it sounds like a great concept. I love the idea — I guess it’s set in a failing newspaper company.”
The potential return of other actors from The Office to the new series remains uncertain. John Krasinski, renowned for his portrayal of Jim Halpert throughout all nine seasons of the original show, expressed his willingness to collaborate with Greg Daniels, the creator of The Office. In a recent interview with People, Krasinski stated, "The truth is I'd do anything Greg Daniels asked me to do."
