The Office Pursuing Two Possible Michael Scott Replacements

With Steve Carell leaving The Office at the end of this season, NBC is getting serious about finding a replacement. The show has reportedly reached out to both Danny McBride of Eastbound & Down and Rhys Darby of Flight of the Conchords—both excellent choices!—about joining the series as a new salesman before the end of the season. Though McBride wouldn't be playing his Eastbound character, we can't help but imagine the high jinks that would ensue if Kenny Powers were running Dunder Mifflin. [Ausiello Files/EW]
