Steve Carell Not Leaving THE OFFICE

I’ve been on a big Steve Carell kick as of late. What can I say…I’m smitten.

Despite his recent box office success which has turned him into one of the biggest movie stars in the world, Steve Carell won’t be leaving Scranton, PA anytime soon. In a recent interview with the Edmonton Sun, Carell talks about his love for THE OFFICE and why he doesn’t feel the need to leave the TV world behind for the big screen.

“I love it (there). I think, just in terms of writing and value, nothing beats that. It’s such a smart group of people and people are really devoted to the show …That sort of group doesn’t come together very often, in television or in movies. It’s sort of a brain-trust, especially the writing team. I’m extremely happy and still very proud to be a part of it.”

In Carell’s new movie, “Evan Almighy” his character, Even Baxter, is given the task of building an arc. So how would Michael Scott deal with the same task from God?

“He would probably get Creed to come in and build the ark because he wouldn’t want to do it himself. And (his girlfriend) Jan would end up convincing him not to do it because she runs roughshod over him anyway. In his mind, Jan might be more powerful than God.”

    I interpret this to mean that he will be on S4 (which we already knew) but he is not committing beyond that. Let’s hope the cast and writers stay intact.

    He strikes me as a guy that’s quite consertative career and money wise I think if NBC’s willing to pay him he will stay only cuz he knows how all this heat can disappear as fast as it came.
