The moment we learned Steve Carell was leaving The Office at the end of this season, we all imagined the kind of tearful season finale you usually get when a show goes off the air
This Tuesday, Steve Carell is set to appear on Ellen and among the topics of discussion is Carell’s departure from his starring role in NBC’s The Office. Read on to see some of what Carell had to say on leaving and his replacement.
The documentary isn't part of the new producing deal Carell has at NBC, and given comedians' proclivities toward swear words and generally vulgar jokes, I'd imagine the documentary would be much more at home on HBO or Showtime
Granted, he's not planning to star in another series, but he is developing a half-hour comedy based on his own experiences working as a mailman in small-town Masachusetts
Lieberstein noted that he hasn't actually started talks with Keitel, but says he is "absolutely" being considered for the role, and they've already come up with a storyline for a possible character
Clearly Dwight Schrute is sharpening his throwing stars and buying up the black paint in preparation to take over Michael's office, but I'd still count on them throwing a new, big name into the mix
After word came out about Steve Carell leaving The Office after next season, fans have all wondered the same thing: what happens with Michael and Holly?
"It was expected of me, as executive producer, to persuade him to stay on. With syndication in full swing the more successful the show remains, the more billions we all make"
Carell's departure at this point could only be a good thing for the show
Could The Office survive without Michael Scott? Rumor has it, Steve Carell is ready to move on from The Office, which could mean one of TV’s most hilarious work-places could be short one bumbling boss.
Maybe the best strategy when casting an iconic character is to go with someone a little less familiar to the general audiences. That seems to be the case with Dermot Mulroney being cast to take on the role made famous by James Garner in the remake of The Rockford Files
This week, I was able to piece together what's changed about The Office over the past several years. Removing Jim and Pam from the office just put it so plainly in my face that I can't believe I didn't realize it fully until just now. Or maybe I did, and I kind of didn't want to admit it.
We were informed earlier that King’s interview with Steve Carell (The Office, Get Smart) is being rescheduled as King will be using the entire hour to cover the news about Tim Russert. We now have the guest list for the episode. This list of names is impressive considering they were all booked last minute. I suppose that’s a mark of just how appreciated and respected Russert was.
Shocking and tragic news from the world of… news. Well known anchor, pundit, host of Meet the Press, and NBC’s Washington Bureau Chief Tim Russert, has died. He was only 58. The news broke just moments ago on NBC, when retired anchor Tom Brokaw came on to make the announcement. Word is that Russert collapsed and died suddenly early this afternoon
When I found out Steve Carell hosted the season finale of Saturday Night Live, which was enough incentive for me to actually watch the episode. We’ve got a couple of clips from the episode, including the Office-themed digital short, introduced by original Office mastermind, Ricky Gervais as well as the Weekend Update clip featuring Senator McCain.
