The new iteration of “The Office” currently in development has started to flesh out its cast.

Variety has confirmed with sources that Sabrina Impacciatore and Domhnall Gleeson are attached to the project, which remain in development at Universal Television. They would occupy two roles in what would be an ensemble cast, like the original versions of the show.

Reps for UTV declined to comment.

Greg Daniels and Michael Koman are co-creating the new series. It has previously been reported that it is not a reboot of “The Office” but is set in the same universe, meaning it would likely be set in a different office setting with all new characters.

Gleeson has recently starred in shows such as “Alice & Jack,” “The Patient,” “Frank of Ireland,” and “Run.” He is perhaps best known for his role as General Hux in the new “Star Wars” film trilogy. He has also starred in films such as “Frank,” “Ex Machina,” and “The Revenant.”

He is repped by Paradigm, The Agency and Goodman Genow

Impacciatore picked up an Emmy nomination for best supporting actress in a drama for her role in Season 2 of HBO’s critically acclaimed series “The White Lotus.” She is primarily known for her work in Italian films like “Napoleon and Me” and “Miss F,” though she did also appear in Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ.”

She is repped by Gersh, MGMT and Gianni Chiffi.

Daniels opened a writers’ room in January 2024 to begin working on the new iteration of the hit NBC mockumentary sitcom, which ran from 2005 to 2013 and was adapted from Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s British series of the same name. The American “Office” took place in Scranton, Penn., and followed the staff of a paper company. It starred Steve Carell, Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, Ed Helms, Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak, among others.
