'The Office': Is Holly leaving with Michael?

Amy Ryan has said that she finished filming her run on "The Office" a few weeks before Steve Carell shot his final episode. That doesn't necessarily mean an unhappy ending for Michael and Holly, though.At least, that's what we're taking from frequent "Office" director (and "Freaks and Geeks" creator) Paul Feig's comments about Carell's swan song."All I'll say is she actually is in the episode in a way," Feig, who directed Carell's last episode, tells TVLine. "[Holly] is involved."The key phrase there is "in a way," which could mean several things: That Ryan actually is in the episode, that she does voiceover -- or just that Holly somehow influences Michael's decision to leave Dunder Mifflin.What Feig will say for sure about the episode -- written by executive producer Greg Daniels -- is that it was an emotional one for the cast and crew."We all knew it was when we were doing it, but you still... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/03/the-office-is-holly-leaving-with-michael.html

Steve Carell's The Office Farewell Gets An Airdate

Steve Carell's last day at 'The Office'

Six years ago, Steve Carell was still best known for his stint on   The Daily Show , plus the occasional bit part in a big Hollywood movie, where he would inevitably steal scenes out from under bigger comedy superstars like Jim Carrey and Will Ferrell. Today, Carell   is   one of those big comedy superstars — the sort of multi-talented performer who can play a genial everyguy ( Date Night ) or a slightly off-kilter loon ( Get Smart ,   The 40-Year-Old Virgin ), with the occasional furlough into animated work ( Despicable Me ,   Horton Hears a Who! .) Incredibly, Carell has become a movie star without ever ditching his day job on   The Office , which makes him a genuine rarity in the Hollywood pantheon.    Read More... http://popwatch.ew.com/2011/03/04/steve-carell-final-day-on-the-office/

'The Office,' 'Threat Level Midnight': Do the Scarn

So how did you feel about "The Office" devoting at least half of an episode to scenes from Michael's 11-years-in-the-making movie? Fun or fluff? A great callback or a waste of time? Or some combination of all that?I'm starting off with so many questions because we're not sure either. "Threat Level Midnight" -- the episode, not the movie within the episode -- had moments that were a huge amount of fun, both inside Michael's labor of love and in people's reaction to it. But it also felt a little bit clip-showy: The callbacks to Season 2's "The Client," where we first learned of the film's existence, and characters gone by were nice for fans, but as a way of building to the show's emotional centerpiece, it certainly took the long way 'round.Let's start with the fun stuff, though: "Threat Level Midnight," the movie, is every bit as "Mystery Science Theater 3000"-level amateurish as you might... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/02/the-office-threat-level-midnight-do-the-scarn.html

The Office: Could Will Arnett be the new Steve Carell?

Rumors continue to swirl about who will take Steve Carells place on The Office when he leaves this season. Weve all got our suggestions, but heres one that actually matters: Ricky Gervais, creator of The Office, thinks Will Arnett is a good fit. Had a little meeting with NBC about various things and recommended Will Arnett for a regular in The Office. Thoughts? I think hes amazing, Gervais wrote on his blog. Arnetts show, Running Wilde, was canceled early this season, and there hasnt yet been news of him being cast in any pilots, so theres a good chance hes available. Plus, his frequent guest spots on 30 Rock prove he fits in just fine with NBCs comedy line-up. What do you think of Arnett as the new Office boss? Who is your pick? Weigh in below.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/02/the-office-could-will-arnett-be-the-new-steve-carell.html
