This is just about the best casting news I've ever heard.

The Wire/The Office crossover continues. First Amy Ryan, and now Idris Elba is coming on board for 6 episodes.

Good lord, the hilarity that will ensue when Michael meets his newest employee! I can't wait to see this.

It's also good to see that while Bubbles and Marlo Stanfield have been slumming it on Heroes, Stringer Bell got a plum spot in The Office.

If Bunk Moreland replaced Stanley at Dunder Mifflin, would Michael even notice?

Every time I pass the television section in Blockbuster and see DVDs of "The Wire" I get all sad and wistful. This news makes me practically giddy with excitement.

Idris Elba has been added to The Office cast as a corporate no-nonsense hire at Dunder Mifflin who is going to make things a little tougher on Michael Scott.

Looks like his new boss, not employee.

I think Jan tried to straighten Michael out *once* when she had Pam record everything that Michael did in the office on one given day. I can't remember what ever became of that list.

Didn't Pam chuck it in the trash when Michael landed an incredibly large account at the end of the day?

Yeah, that was "Initation", where he practiced his Cosby impression (at the time we were unaware that the client's time was Coselli), then stood in the pretzel line for an hour, then took a nap, then made a giant sale when the client finally called.

I wonder if he will have a British accent or American accent?

Well, I just got THE WIRE complete series for Christmas, and I am LOVING this news. Can't wait to see how Stringer pulls of the comedy. Of course, one could say that his latest movie roll in THE UNBORN was comedy. Since the movie had me laughing at how bad it was.

The Killing is dead after two seasons. (insidetv.ew.com) I actually gave up on The Killing halfway through season one but others here saw it through to the eventual reveal of Rosie Larson's killer. Will you miss The Killing?
