Will Ferrell and Steve Carell Hug it Out in ‘The Office’ Teaser (Video)

“The Office” experiences a touchy-feely changing of the guard

Dunder Mifflin regional manager Michael Scott might not have had a grip on solid leadership skills during his tenure there, but he certainly has a grip on his successor.

Will Ferrell will be taking the reins at the hilariously struggling paper company soon, with Steve Carell stepping down from the NBC comedy "The Office." A new promotional clip for the upcoming transitional episodes, which begin on April 14, offers a sneak preview of the changing of the guard.

Watch Carell and Ferrell get touchy in the video below.
