Us Office To End Early
The US version of hit British TV show THE OFFICE will end its season early, because lead star STEVE CARRELL has urgent filming commitments.
The 42-year-old funnyman, who stars as cringe-making boss MICHAEL SCOTT, is taking a break to star in EVAN ALMIGHTY - the big-budget sequel to JIM CARREY movie BRUCE ALMIGHTY.
Despite the shortened run, American broadcasters insist the series will return next season. Fellow British-born sitcom, TEACHERS, will take The Office's current Thursday night slot.
Further details have yet to be released.
