As The Office plans its head count and staffing after Steve Carell departs, they’ve already added one name to fill a new role on the show. Cody Horn from Rescue Me will join the Dunder Mifflin team in Scranton, Pa.
According to TVLine.com, Cody’s character will get involved with a steamy romance with a fellow staffer. Paul Lieberstein, the show’s executive producer said, “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.”
Cody’s new gig on The Office will begin recurring but it sounds like there will be potential to become a regular role. Two other new gigs are up for grabs — one will be cast for Stanley’s other daughter and a new actor will be added to the accounting department.
