Jim Carrey is coming to "The Office." And no, we're not just talking out of our ass.

GiveMeMyRemote.com broke the story about Carrey's upcoming turn on "The Office" season finale, which was later unofficially confirmed by TVLine.

Carrey will reportedly be one of the guest stars attempting to replace Michael Scott (Steve Carell). So far, the line up includes James Spader, Will Arnett, Catherine Tate, Ray Romano and even Ricky Gervais, who will reprise his role as David Brent from the original UK version of "The Office" for the second time this year.

While the identity of the new boss is still a closely guarded secret, it definitely won't be Will Ferrell's DeAngelo Vickers, who will also not be appearing in the season finale.

Carrey's return is something of a surprise as it's been several years since he appeared on television in anything other than a sketch comedy series or a talk show. Back in the '80s, one of Carrey's first big breaks was as the star of a TV series called "The Duck Factory" before becoming a featured star on the Fox series, "In Living Color" in 1990.

These days, Carrey is much better known as film actor, having starred in "The Majestic," "The Truman Show," The Number 23," "The Mask," "Liar, Liar," "The Cable Guy" and "Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind" among several others.

However, Carrey did make a memorable appearance on "Saturday Night Live" earlier this year, which included a hilarious parody of "The Black Swan."

The seventh season finale of "The Office" will air on Thursday, May 19 only on NBC.
