Exciting Office news came down the pike last week, when it was announced that Will Ferrell will guest star on the show towards the end of this season, to aid with Michael Scott's exit in some yet-to-be-revealed way. Not being satisfied with the enormity of that news and taking a cue from NBC's press release, some people started trumping it up as an Anchorman reunion. Which is a little silly considering that just about any two male comedic actors doing anything together would probably constitute an Anchorman reunion, and that Steve Carell had a pretty small role -- albeit a memorable and awesome one -- in Anchorman. Which got us thinking about all the stuntcasting possibilities that could spawn even less warranted epic reunion claims.
How I Met Your Mother

Californication/United States of Tara
In an unprecedented Showtime series crossover event/reunion event/product placement event, Hank Moody will use his unique sexual prowess to seduce each and every one of Tara Gregson's personalities at a book-signing event at her local Borders.

Since Grey's Anatomy is already both a Made of Honor reunion (Patrick Dempsey and Kevin McKidd) and a Valentine's Day reunion (Patrick Dempsey and Eric Dane) every week, tune in for the Wedding Planner reunion event on Grey's Anatomy, as Dr. Alex Karev's (Justin Chambers) life is in grave danger after being run over by that dumpster that almost killed J.Lo in that movie, only this time, there's no Matthew McConaughey -- just Seattle Grace's staff of C-list rom-com heartthrobs -- to save his damaged brain... and his crushed heart.
