Guess who's coming to 'The Office'?

Who's the boss? That might be the question "The Office" fans are left asking when Ray Romano, James Spader and Catherine Tate guest star on the hour-long season finale in May.

As fans of the NBC series know, Steve Carell will finish his seven-year stint as Dundler Mifflin office manager Michael Scott on April 28, leaving a vacancy in the position. Enter Romano, Spader and "Doctor Who" alum Tate, who will appear as candidates for the job on the show's May 19 finale, according to TV Line.

The entertainment site says that of the three, Spader and Tate are most likely to be serious contenders to take Carell's spot. Romano is already committed to another TV series, TNT's "Men of a Certain Age." FULL POST

Will Ferrell tops Forbes list of overpaid actors

Will Ferrell may bring on big laughs, but big box office? Not so much.

For the second year in the row, the comic has landed himself at the top of Forbes's Overpaid Actors List.

To come up with its Top 10 – which counts movies made prior to June 2010 - Forbes looked at the three most recent films of the actors on its Celebrity 100 list. It then calculated the money raked in from the theatrical, DVD, and TV releases of those films, factored in production budgets, and compared the final figure to the star's salary.

Is that you, Will Ferrell?

According to the comic actor’s publicist, Matt Labov, his client isn’t the guy behind the fake Paramount twitter account, which materialized about two weeks ago, right around the time it looked like “Anchorman 2” wasn't going to happen.

“There are at least 4 fake 'Will Ferrell' pages, none of which are actually him. The actor Will Ferrell did not 'tweet' these and it is unfortunate that Twitter, which purports to have authenticity and legitimacy, still cannot fix the continual issue of impostors,” Labov said.

Just so we're clear: Labov is "saying that Will Ferrell himself does not have a Twitter page nor does he have anything to do with this Paramount page in any way, shape or form.”
