Another Wire alumni joining The Office.

Amy Ryan (Holly on The Office, Beadie on The Wire) has already moved from The Wire to The Office, now another will make that move.

Variety is reporting that Idris Elba (AKA Stringer Bell) has signed on for six episodes of the successful NBC series.

His character is described as “no-nonsense hire at Dunder Mifflin’s corporate office who will throw Michael Scott (Steve Carell) into turmoil.”

Good to see Elba picking up such a high profile role. He has done some excellent work, both on television and in films.
