Paul Lieberstein of 'The Office' Talks About Replacing Steve Carell

Paul Lieberstein is familiar to most fans of 'The Office' through his acting work as Dunder Mifflin Scranton's put-upon HR rep Toby Flenderson. But Lieberstein has also been on the show's writing staff since day one and ascended to the role of showrunner a couple of years ago. So if there's anyone who has an idea of how the show is going to replace Steve Carell and his iconic character of Michael Scott, it's Lieberstein.

When I caught up to him at the NBC TCA party last month, though, Lieberstein couldn't say how that was going to happen, mainly because the writers were still sorting things out themselves. But if he had a choice of who could manage the Scranton office, at least among the people who are already there, he'd pick either Andy Bernard (played by Ed Helms) or Darryl Philbin (played by Craig Robinson).
