We'd be surprised if 'The Office' series finale didn't find some way to either include, or pay tribute to departed series star Steve Carell in the series' final hour, but now Carell himself has even jumped on the recent bandwagon of denying character Michael Scott will appear before Dunder-Mifflin closes its doors this May. Carell recently spoke out about his decision not to return to 'The Office' series finale, but should we believe him? Judge for yourself inside!
While our beloved '30 Rock' will come to a close on January 31, we shan't forget that 2013 will also see the final episodes of 'The Office' airing this May. And while much has been said about the final hours of the Dunder-Mifflin crew, from returning guests to unraveling the mystery behind the documentary team, the cast and crew recently took to the TCA tour to preview the series end, including several returning cast members (and several still not). Find out the latest on the 'Office' series finale inside!
While everyone has their own opinion of the direction NBC's 'The Office' has taken in the years without Steve Carell, as the series approaches its final swan song most would agree any finale would feel incomplete without Carell's character Michael Scott returning for one final "that's what she said." So while we move closer to 'The Office's ninth season and series finale, will Steve Carell return? NBC chairman Bob Greenblatt has an answer that might surprise you, so check out the new details inside!
Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years. But facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray, even their show looks stale.
Meryl Streep has done a lot acting-with-a-capital-a lately; big, showy performances with accents and makeup and wigs and uncanny impressions of famous people. 'Hope Springs' proves she can still act-with-a-lower-case-a -- playing a nobody suburban housewife trying to breathe life back into her long-standing but lifeless marriage -- and produce equally big results. She's fantastic, and she seems to bring out the best in everyone around her, like a pitcher working on a no-hitter whose teammates are inspired to rise to the occasion and make outstanding defensive plays.
Steve Carell is the quintessential sad-clown comic. Oh, he’s fully capable of going for broke in off-the-wall comedies like 'Anchorman' or 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin.' Yet even when Carell plays serious – as he has done in such well-received feature films as 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' or 'Little Miss Sunshine' – audiences find themselves laughing along through their tears.
You might have the same reaction from ‘Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,’ a deeper-than-expected Armageddon comedy that finds two lost souls searching for redemption before an asteroid takes out our planet. We recently posted our one-on-one conversation with Carell’s ‘End of the World’ co-star, Keira Knightley. Now it’s ‘The Office’ star’s turn to open up about his Armageddon menu and the one item he'd preserve in a time capsule if our planet was on the brink.
