Deangelo Jeremitrius Vickers, played by Will Ferrell, was Michael Scott's replacement as Branch Manager at Dunder Mifflin Scranton after Michael moved to Colorado with his fiancée, Holly Flax. His tenure was short, however, after an accident which landed him in hospital forced CEO Jo Bennett to find a replacement for him.
Deangelo appeared in a story arc that lasted four episodes. His first appearance was in "Training Day", where he was introduced to everyone. Deangelo was hired to be the Regional Manager of the Dunder Mifflin Scranton Branch to replace long-time manager Michael Scott. In Michael's Last Dundies, Deangelo and Michael hosted the Dundies at Louie Volpes, and Deangelo later sang Michael's Goodbye Song with the rest of the branch. Deangelo became the Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin Scranton in "Goodbye, Michael" when Michael departed Scranton and Dunder Mifflin for good. At Michael's going away party, Deangelo attacks the cake and the office realizes that he is going to be hard to work with.
Deangelo is officially Regional Manager in "The Inner Circle". He considers himself to be a professional juggler, even though he juggles invisible juggling balls; he juggles to the song Bring Me to Life by Evanescence. The entire office believe Deangelo to be extremely childish and incapable to be manager. The only employees that are impressed with his "juggling skills" are Kevin Malone and Creed Bratton.
As Regional Manager, he sets up an Inner Circle of his favorite employees which includes Kevin Malone, Darryl Philbin, Gabe Lewis, Jim Halpert (temporary) and Andy Bernard (temporary). After playing Nerf basketball with the Inner Circle, Jim challenged Deangelo to a free-throw line dunk in which Deangelo accepts. However, after dunking, the hoop collapses on him, and he is sent to the hospital. He later reappeared in the office dressed in a hospital smock while speaking gibberish. He was sent back to the hospital and is never seen again.
In the producers cut of "Search Committee", Jo lists all the former managers, mentioning Deangelo as "the second idiot to dunk himself to death!"
In "Lotto", Deangelo was mentioned by Darryl saying that he's dead, but Andy corrects him saying he's not dead, just his brain.
Deangelo is widely regarded by the Dunder Mifflin crew as a brash, obstinate and opinionated boss who is very sexist. He is welcomed at first by employees trying to win his favor, but then loses more and more employee respect.
- Deangelo has 4 children (1 is a son) and a cousin. His cousin cracked a formula for a popular soda so Deangelo couldn't buy it. According to a deleted scene in The Inner Circle, Deangelo has a brother.
- Deangelo's mother divorced his father and he had to go to court and choose between them.
- Deangelo is allergic to peanuts.
- Deangelo "conquered" obesity.
