So WHO Exactly Is Replacing Steve Carell On The Office?

will-ferrell-not-doing-the-office-full-time

They really are doing a good job of keeping us guessing, but it's making us effing anxious!

Steve Carell only has a few more episodes left as Michael Scott on The Office, before his character departs from our hearts forever with new fiance Holly Flax, and despite a few names having come up as his full-time replacements, recent news announcements are throwing some serious wrenches in our theories!

As you all probably know by now, Will Ferrell will be joining the cast in a few weeks as Deangelo Vickers, the apparent successor to Steve's position. Then it was announced that Will Arnett would be appearing the finale, along with Ricky Gervais, who has already cameo'd this season as his original, British version character, David Brent!

SO…there's three potential replacements - now, let's break it down:

Will Ferrell was originally signed for a four episode arc, ending with the season finale. HOWEVER, he recently made some comments that suggested that he may be taking on the series full-time, leaving many to wonder if his original plans had changed!

NOT SO, says producer Paul Lieberstein, who explains:

"Will was joking. But he commits to his jokes so fully that we're hoping he's with us long term, just as a [comedy] bit that won't end."

All right, so he's out of the way…

Will Arnett seemed to be the biggest contender for the spot, as his announcement came along with rumblings that he had struck a deal to take over for Carell full-time, before it was made public yesterday that he had signed on to co-star in the new Christina Applegate NBC comedy pilot, essentially nixing any plans he may have had for the former, which leaves us with…

Ricky Gervais.

WE KNOW. He's said he wouldn't do it.

But between his cameo, and then news that he'd be returning as David Brent for the finale…we feel like the only person fans would truly respond to positively as the successor to Michael Scott would be him!

Think about how amazingly full-circle the entire franchise will have come! One last season - let's face it, that's about as much life as the show has left - with the ORIGINATOR of it all!

Call it wishful thinking…but we honestly can't thinking of anyone else that could do it, so our fingers are staying crossed!

What do U think?? Who will replace Steve Carrell??

The Biggest Loser Hires New Trainers To Succeed Jillian Michaels!

Filed under: FitnessJillian MichaelsReality TV

nbc-hires-new-trainers-to-succeed-jillian-michaels-on-the-biggest-loser

That was fast! They must have anticipated her exit!

Although The Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels only just announced that she will be leaving the series after the upcoming 11th season, NBC has already hired two new trainers to succeed her!

The newbies will be announced next week, and will be present, alongside the veterans, when the show starts up again in January!

Not bad! We think that all of them together on one season will help smooth out the transition between trainers!

We doubt that most could compare to Jillian though, so we're curious to see whom they have planned to take over!

Unkle Karl Selects His Chanel Successor

And it's not Alber Elbaz!

In the November issue of Numero, Karl Lagerfeld reveals who he wants to take over for him when he exits Chanel.

He tells the mag:

“I have a contract for life so it all depends on who I would like to hand it to. At the moment I’d say Haider Ackermann.”

While the compliment is amazing, we don't think Haider should be waiting by the phone for that call. Karl's made it pretty clear he won't be retiring any time soon.

Is Portia de Rossi Taking Over For Steve Carrell On The Office??

wenn5472979jb.jpg

Very curious indeed!

There's been quite a bit of speculation over who will be taking over Steve Carrell's much-coveted role on The Office - names being thrown around include Ricky Gervais, Danny McBride, and Rhys Darby.

Sources close to production confirm that McBride will be on the upcoming season, but not as Carell's successor - that spot is being given to an Arrested Development alum!

Inneresting! While many of the cast is involved in other projects, the only one who doesn't appear to be attached to anything (except for the Arrested flick) is the lovely Miz Portia de Rossi!

AMAZING! We think she would make an INSPIRED choice! Would totally change up the dynamic of the show, which we think it needs!

What do U think?? How would Portia do on The Office??
