Aaron Rodgers makes a cameo on The Office

aaron-rodgers-dwight-schrute

At one point, The Office was the funniest show on TV.  At a more recent point, I realized that I continue to watch it only because I felt obligated to see the series through to the end.

But as the train pulls into the station, the show is getting better.  Or maybe I’ve reduced my expectations.

Regardless, the next-to-last episode of the series will feature Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in a cameo.

According to WGBA-TV, Rodgers plays a judge in an a capella singing contest.  Which unfortunately means that the overdone “Andy Bernard wants to be a star” storyline will continue for at least another episode.

    Yeah cuz nothing screams Scranton, PA like Aaron Rodgers.
    Hell, if he weren’t dead, they could’ve gone after Mr. Rodgers from the kids TV show. At least he was from PA.

    I don’t know what’s going on with the show, but they should make him Ryan’s long lost twin brother.

    Why can’t Aaron Rodgers spend more time focusing on football rather than his many off-field pursuits?

    Wahjuhhs! plays a character named Dirtbag on the show. He seemed very natural in the role.

  6. thestrategyexpert says: May 6, 2013 2:30 PM

    They should have had his character as some kind of nut promoting the Discount Double Check like as if he wanted to be the best promoter for State Farm, and it would have been funny if that created conflict with Dwight and they became rivals and he just can’t beat Aaron Rodgers.

    The Office has really gone downhill this year. The first season lost-Michael was decent. It’s at How I Met Your Mother levels of bad now, which is another show I feel obligated to watch despite the fact it now sucks for a payoff I’m only helping delay by supporting their ratings.

  8. tokyosandblaster says: May 6, 2013 2:31 PM

    They should have had Ted Thompson do it. He’s the best judge of talent in history.

    Exactly!!! I’ve always thought they looked alike!

    So they needed someone dull to mope for a scene? I guess they found their guy. They must have saw his amazing range in the Sunday Night Football opening.

    The critics better be careful though on what they say about his performance. Better yet just give him an emmy now just so his feelings don’t get hurt.

    Yeah, why can’t he be more focused on football like P. Manning. Or E. for that matter.

    I think Rodgers is doing a nice job of handling his role as the face of the NFL.

  13. mcg27 says: May 6, 2013 2:48 PM

    I bet The Office gets a big ratings bump from all the GB fans that will tune in to see their QB

    Synonymous. The TV show & Packers are declining to their respective end.

    “The Office” was the funniest thing on TV for many years until Michael left and the Andy Bernard character made me hate television.

    I just thought of a great possible spin-off for the show. What if Dwight Schrute got a new job as an NFL official? Maybe he could be the dude who makes sure that the players are all complying with the rules about wearing the right color socks and shoes.

    Thankfully, I havent watched a ‘TV show’ in over 20 years, so I have no idea what this post is about.

  17. bobnelsonjr says: May 6, 2013 2:59 PM

    I have never watched one episode of this show. Now I will.

    With Aaron Rodgers bringing his star power to this episode it will be the highest rated episode the show ever had.

    America loves Aaron Rodgers and his Super Bowl winning ways. The networks know that his mere presence produces huge ratings and money in the bank.

  18. patriotenvy says: May 6, 2013 3:01 PM

    They should throw Tood Packer in that episode just for his name. They could get Brett too and him and Todd could be sending text messages to the women.

  19. justintuckrule says: May 6, 2013 3:01 PM

    They should sign those acapella singers to GB’s defense. I bet they hit harder.

  20. barroomhero80 says: May 6, 2013 3:05 PM

    I guess it doesn’t matter if they ruin the show now since it’s over.

    Actually, that would be allegory, if it were true.

    A true allegory for the Vikings, for instance, would be NBC’s Bionic Woman, in that they never really finish a season.

    The comments posted here are worst attempt at humor. I mean even the office is funnier. Haters.

    Geniuses like this have been predicting the Packers’ demise for years and years and years. Eventually, they may just get their wish. In the meantime, though, all they can do is keep looking “up” at the Packers.

    Your posts are usually pretty intelligent so I’m going to chalk this one up as your joking. If your not then we need to look at your current qb situation and go from there

  28. iluvbears says: May 6, 2013 3:25 PM

    Now I know I won’t watch that episode.

  29. deltaoracle says: May 6, 2013 3:26 PM

    We can be sure that no Minnesota Viking will appear anytime soon in “The Middle.”

  30. taintedsaints2009 says: May 6, 2013 3:27 PM

    He looks like Ryan the temp. I thought they should have done this years ago with Rodgers

  31. melkipershero says: May 6, 2013 3:36 PM

    Wait How I met your mother sucks now? I just finished what is on Netflix and that show is hilarious up to that point.

    “People have told me that I sucked in that movie,” Favre deadpanned. “But I just say to them, ‘how many movies have you sucked in?’ ”.
    Whoops… wrong QB.

    Thanks for the compliment. I was trying to play off the Chris Kluwe story from earlier today. Oh well, they can’t all be gems.

    the season should end with everyone in the office watching the hangover trailer starring andy

    Has this guy come out of the closet yet ?

  37. vfan76 says: May 7, 2013 12:04 AM

    As a Vikings Fan I can honestly say I like Rodgers. But Packers Fans ruin everything because you actually worship him.

  38. mrpeary3189 says: May 7, 2013 1:44 AM

    The Office is still on the air?

  39. lambeaurules says: May 7, 2013 6:21 AM

    Question. What kind of bear is best?

    Dwight Schrute: That’s a ridiculous question.

    Jim Halpert: False. Black bear.

    Dwight Schrute: That’s debatable. There are basically two schools of thought–

    Jim Halpert: Fact. Bears eat beets. Bears. Beets. Battlestar Galactica.

    Dwight Schrute: Bears do not… What is going on?! What are you doing?!

    Is the answer…”because you’re a humorless idiot?”

    I watched. I laughed. I cried.

    There is no justice in this world if he doesn’t win an Emmy for that tremendous performance.
