Steve Carell might leave “The Office”

Steve Carell’s contract with The Office runs out next season. When asked by British TV if he’s staying, Carell replied, “I don’t think so. I think that will probably be my last year.”

FOX says now that Steve is a big movie star, he doesn’t need to do a weekly TV series. Add to the fact The Office is rarely funny anymore and everything begins to make sense. There’s no shame in leaving a sinking ship.

Carell will run into the same problems plaguing Will Ferrell in his movie career which is playing the same character over and over again. How many times do I need to watch a clueless, screaming Will Ferrell stumble through a film? Just like how many times are people going to put up with an ignorant and clueless Steve Carell awkwardly delivering lines? At some point people are going to realize they’ve been paying to watch the same movie over and over again.
