There are mere hours until the start of the final episode of season 7 of “The Office,” also known as “Steve Carell’s Last Episode.” The show has come a long way since Ben Silverman put it into production in 2005, helping grow the series into an Emmy Award-winning comedy. But tonight, the star of the show, Steve Carrel, will say goodbye to rest of the cast, as his character is moving away and leaving the company. The big question left to be answered, though: Who will replace him? Who is suitable to run Scranton’s Dunder Mifflin Paper Company?
Gossip and entertainment blogs have gone wild trying to learn who the replacement will be before an official announcement is made. Among the guesses so far are Catherine Tate, Ed Helms, Craig Robinson and Rainn Wilson. DumbDumb’s Will Arnett was another possible candidate, and while he might have been in serious contention, the announcement that his new NBC pilot “Up All Night” was picked up means that he’s most likely out of the running. Stay tuned for more news about Ben Silverman and what’s to come of the show he made famous, “The Office.”
