One might look at the subject of this headline and think, “Huh. Slow news day.” Nope. However trivial, this story focuses on two of my favorite things, billionaires and Breaking Bad, so that story on the Pacific Rim sequel is just going to have to live by the wayside.

In this Buzzfeed story, we learn that Buffett isn’t just a fan, but went so far as to make a sketch with Bryan Cranston that supposes that Buffett’s investment in See’s Candies is just a front for a meth operation. This was for his annual shareholder meeting, which means that Warren Buffett might be a bigger badass than Walter White himself.

In the story, Buffett praises White’s business acumen, which is sort of like saying that the Nazis used a beautiful color palette for their uniforms.

Gervais Plays The ‘Shark Jumping’ Card On ‘Office’ Season Finale http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/gervais-plays-the-shark-jumping-card-on-office-season-finale/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/gervais-plays-the-shark-jumping-card-on-office-season-finale/#comments Fri, 20 May 2011 23:49:42 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=213145 “If you’re going to jump a shark, jump a big one,” Gervais wrote on his blog. So... maybe a Sharktopus?

“If you’re going to jump a shark, jump a big one,” Ricky Gervais wrote on his blog, regarding “The Office” season finale. So… maybe a Sharktopus? I bet Dwight would do it, or at least, he would say that he would do it.

Last night was the much-hyped “Office” season closer, which featured cameos by Jim Carrey, Will Arnett, Gervais himself (via webcam) and oddly enough, Warren Buffett. I guess when Steve Carell leaves your show, you need to plug that celebrity sized hole in your sitcom boat. Catherine Tate (“Dr. Who“) is the current favorite among the producers as a replacement.

Gervais had many critical things to say about the American version of his hit show, because if there’s one thing Gervais shies away from, it’s controversies stemmed from freely speaking his opinions:

“I assume most people know I didn’t do the US remake for the art. I did my version for the art. That’s why I stopped it after a few hours of telly,” Gervais wrote. “Don’t get me wrong. I’m very proud of the US version. It was not only a very very good network comedy but it was also a massive success story. But you know, I did it for different reasons, ambitions and with slightly different emotional attachments to the project.”

Gervais referring to the show in the past tense is interesting. “It was not only…” Well, once you jump a shark, you can’t un-jump it. Third Law of Shark Jumping Physics. (Hollywood Reporter)

There’s a reason to keep watching “The Office,” even though Steve Carrell is gone, and that reason is… somewhat interesting celebrities. So, now all the producers have to do is load every episode next season with 6-7 celebrities and they’ll be good to go.

Billionaire tycoon Warren Buffett joins the never-ending famous person parade that is”The Office” season finale. Other celebrities making a cameo-or-greater on the episode include Jim Carrey, Ray Romano, Catherine Tate, Will Arnett, James Spader and Ricky Gervais. They’re all interviewing for the coveted position of Scranton branch manager for the paper company Dunder Mifflin. This just goes to show you, if you work hard enough, and become famous enough, you too can interview to become the head of the small Pennsylvania off-shoot of a poorly managed paper company.

The almost-an-hour-long “Office” season finale airs May 20th. (Variety)
