Harvey Keitel Rumored to Be in the Running For Steve Carell Replacement on The Office

Should Another Actor Replace Steve Carell on The Office?

Rumors continue to fly about what will happen to The Office when Steve Carell leaves for greener, cinematic pastures. Though I've already made peace with the idea that the show could be better without Michael Scott, showrunners have different ideas and are looking to replace the boss with another actor.

Both Danny McBride and Rhys Darby have been mentioned, and now the latest name to be thrown in the ring is Harvey Keitel, as suggested by The Office producer Paul Lieberstein (who also plays Toby). The cast, meanwhile, seems to be divided — Angela Kinsey joked that she'd like Brad Pitt to come on board, while Mindy Kaling advocated for Dwight to fill the position.

However, I'm left wondering if the show even needs to add a new actor to the staff. The ensemble may be strong enough without him — but there's no denying that a fresh face could help revive the series. What do you want to see?

He is my least favorite character on the show. I hate how I switch between hating him and feeling sorry for him. In the original you just hated the boss because he was such a dbag, so I really do not care what they do with his character as long as it is good.

I agree it's time to put the office out to pasture. That said, I would be very, very, very excited to see Rhys Darby join!

I don't see the show working if one of the current cast members replaces Michael Scott. I thought the show went downhill when Jim was co-manager with Michael, and I was glad when that ended. I think everyone in the cast does great in the roles they're in, and they need to bring in someone when Michael leaves so that the show doesn't lose any of what makes it work.
