Stephen Colbert is finally coming to The Office

Finally following the career arc of Daily Show correspondent to starring on The Office that he somehow avoided by becoming "independently famous" or whatever, Stephen Colbert has signed on for a guest-starring role in the show's upcoming ninth and final season. According to Entertainment Weekly, Colbert will play the oft-mentioned Broccoli Rob, fellow member of the equally oft-mentioned Here Comes Treble a cappella group so beloved of Ed Helms' Andy Bernard. Colbert will drop in during the show's Halloween episode, his character revealing a bitter rivalry with Helms' due to his "singing a different tune about the history of the group"—which is wordplay, because a cappella. Anyway, this leaves one wondering about when Mo Rocca will finally appear on the show, "one" being Mo Rocca.
