Steve Carell Reflects On The Office

Steve Carell thinks a lot about The Office and what it has meant to him, including what it'll be like to watch the upcoming season without having to "go back to school" with his friends.

"It is a little weird that everyone else is going back to school and I have graduated. It will be interesting two weeks from now. I'm sure I'll have some pangs. I've worked with them for so many years," he says. "I'll miss them."

"I have no regrets in terms of moving on," Carell goes on. "I left at the right time for me. But the show will continue and will be great."

He also digs the idea of James Spader joining the cast:

James Spader In Talks To Be The New Boss Of The Office

Filed under: TV NewsSteve Carell

That's right. You heard us! James Spader is replacing Steve Carell< /del> Kathy Bates.

Gotcha! LOLZ!

Truth is, Kathy will be committed to her new show Harry's Law next fall and it will become impossible for her to return to The Office as Dunder Mifflin's CEO. That's why producers are courting James to take her spot, since he was so well recieved in this past season's finale.

We're happy for him … and we're not.

But only because we're dying to see who is replacing Michael Scott!!!! C'mon already!!!

Good-bye, Michael! Steve Carell Has Left The Office!

And just like that, he's gone. Excuse us while we continue to silently weep.

Last night, Steve Carell made his final appearance on The Office as Michael Scott, and we think that the entire cast and crew involved in the production should be very proud of themselves for such a thoughtful, funny, and truly heartbreaking 50 minutes of television!

For those of you who have yet to see it, A) GO OUT AND WATCH IT IMMEDIATELY, and B) WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!

The majority of the episode focused on Michael Scott's last day at Dunder Mifflin. Unbeknownst to the staff, he had scheduled his flight to Boulder - to be with his fiance, Holly Flax - a day earlier than anyone knew, as to avoid the difficulty of saying good-bye to his employees.

Of course, it was an easier feat said than done and by the end of the day, Jim had figured out what was going on, which ultimately led to a heartwrenching moment between the two men as they said good-bye and let each other know how appreciative they were of their time together.

The episode wrapped with Michael at the airport, having parted with everyone but Pam - who had been out of the office for the majority of the day, assuming that she would be able to say good-bye to him later - and finally, in respect to the 'mockumentary' style of the show, removing his mic pack and asking the 'camera crew' to let him know "if this thing ever actually airs."

As he walks away, Pam manages to get through security and, without even getting her shoes on, and they both have the opportunity to say good-bye to each other.

Other emotional moments included a very sweet exchange between Michael and Erin, Andy being entrusted with Michael's top ten clients despite his difficulties as a salesmen, and Dwight finally receiving a truly touching letter of recommendation from the boss he has idolized for seven seasons.

END SPOILERS.

Ugh. Even just reflecting back on it has us emotional!

Even if you have lost interest in the series - we're the first to admit that it's had some bumpy moments, especially in later seasons - we really suggest you check this one out!

The writing is top notch, and frankly, all of the actors out-do themselves here!

Such authentic, delicate performances (which frankly, may be because they were all really that emotional filming these last scenes with Steve Carell, but it only makes it that much more touching)!

We couldn't think of a better tribute to a man who took a HIGHlarious character and filled it, as well as the show itself, with so much heart for so long!

As cautiously optimistic as we are for the future of the show, we think everyone can agree that it just won't be the same without him!

Thanks for the memories, Steve, and for making us smile and laugh for so many years!

You will be missed!

Jim Carrey Will Also Be On Office Season Finale

Filed under: TV NewsJim CarreySteve CarellRicky Gervais

Jim Carrey On The Office

It's starting to feel like there will be more guest stars on the season finale of The Office than there will be of actual cast members! Ha!

Jim will be joining Ricky Gervais, Will Arnett, James Spader, Ray Romano and Catherine Tate as guest stars interviewing for Michael Scott's management position. (Which is an excellent explanation to have all the guest stars!)

Of course, depending on how strong the character is, we might actually love seeing Jim take over for Steve. We think he's a talented enough, funny enough guy to really pull it off. And he's got the star quality about him, so it'd be cool if he could suck it up and do a season of television at this point in his career just to make fans happy with what will probably be the final season!

The Office's hourlong Season 7 finale airs May 19!
