The internet has an unprecedented thirst for Steve Carell's new look

It’s hard to believe that this man was ever Michael Scott.

STEVE CARRELL HAS never been the worst looking guy. The problem is however, that for the majority of the time people have been aware of his existence, he has been too painfully goofy for anyone to find particularly attractive.

In The Office he makes dad joke upon dad joke and mortifies everyone around him. Even his girlfriend Jan forces him to sleep in a separate (and hilariously tiny) bed.

There are plenty of people admitting that they’ve always found Steve Carrell to be very attractive.

Somehow, through all of the cringey dad jokes and all of the mortifying situations he has gotten himself into while playing Michael Scott, people have still considered him ‘hot’.

He’s always typecast as an embarrassing bumbling guy who always takes his jokes too far. It’s easy to forget that he’s not necessarily the guy who makes us scream internally when we watch him on The Office. However, some recent photos of him have allowed people to see him in a new light.

He certainly has aged pretty well since retiring from being The Worlds Best Boss.

Move over Ryan the temp, because the 2017 Dundie for “Hottest in the Office” goes to Michael Scott.

The reaction to his new look has been very positive.

For those who have always appreciated Steve Carrell’s looks, 2017 is your year.
