"Iron Man" director Jon Favreau may be dabbling in the television world again.
NBC confirms that the actor/writer/director is in talks to direct an upcoming episode of the "The Office" this season. If a deal is sealed, it would be Favreau's first time on board with the comedy that mocks the awkward encounters between everyday office employees.
Favreau has called the shots behind the camera on other television shows in the past, previously directing episodes of NBC's "Revolution," Fox's "Undeclared" and "Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
As an actor on the small screen, the onetime comedian is best known for his role of Pete Becker, Monica Geller's boyfriend during season three of "Friends."
