According to TVLine's Michael Ausiello, Clark Duke is in talks to join the cast as a series regular for season 9. Here's an excerpt from the article, which gives some details on Duke's role and the other cast changes in season 9:
Details on his character are few and far between, but this much is known: he would be working at (duh) Dunder Mifflin. (If his alter ego is half as entertaining as the sexually inappropriate assistant he played on New Girl last season we’re all in).
As previously reported, The Office is set to undergo a mini-reboot this fall amid changes in front of and behind the scenes — including the departures of Fox-bound Mindy Kaling and showrunner Paul Lieberstein, as well as the possible exit of a soon-to-be spun off Rainn Wilson. Additionally, it was recently announced that B.J. Novak (Ryan) will not be returning as a regular.

My thoughts: Clark Duke played one of my favorite characters on ABC Family's Greek, so it will be interesting to see how he fits into the cast of The Office. Although, as much as I love the show, I think it's time for The Office to come to an end. With all of the cast and behind the scenes changes, it doesn't feel like the show it used to be when I loved it the most. I think that NBC really needs to stop prolonging The Office's run and just let it end already.
