Looks like THE OFFICE is going to live on quite nicely, even after series star Steve Carrell leaves later this season. TVLine.com reports that model-turned-actress Cody Horn (Rescue Me) has been tapped to fill one of the three new roles that NBC has added to the NBC comedy.
So far, not much info is being released about her character, except that she’ll be a pleasant and smart addition to Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch. It also looks like she might just be getting hot and heavy with a longtime staffer.
Executive producer and costar Paul Lieberstein (Toby) had this to say:
“We’re very excited to have found Cody. We’ve been searching for a love interest for Creed for a long time. So just sit back and get ready to be disgusted.”
In addition to her role in Rescue Me, Horn also played in the Rob Reiner-directed teen romance Flipped. Horn will start her Office gig as a recurring but there is reportedly some potential for that to grow into a series regular, so we’ll have to wait and see.
The other two Office roles being added to the show include Stanley’s other daughter and a new male addition to the accounting department, no casting news on them yet.
