UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Jan. 15 (UPI) -- British actor Idris Elba has signed on to star in a multi-episode story arc on the U.S. sit-com "The Office," NBC announced Thursday.

"Elba will play the new no-nonsense hire at Dunder Mifflin's corporate office that will throw Michael Scott (played by Steve Carell) into turmoil," the network said in a news release.

Elba's film credits include "The Reaping," "28 Weeks Later," "American Gangster," "Rocknrolla" and "Obsessed." Named one of People magazine's "100 Most Beautiful People," Elba also co-starred in the former U.S. drama series "The Wire."
