Winnipeg Sun - - ENT-SHOWBIZ -

In 2010, Steve Carell an­nounced he was leav­ing the Emmy-win­ning TV se­ries The

Of­fice, af­ter seven sea­sons of play­ing the goofy man­ager of a pa­per com­pany. At the time, he said he wanted to spend more time with his fam­ily. But in the years since, he has rein­vented him­self as a dra­matic ac­tor.

The sit­com con­tin­ued on for an­other two sea­sons adding James Spader’s Robert Cal­i­for­nia to the mix. Carell did end up re­turn­ing for the Sea­son 9 fi­nale, but he said it’s un­likely he would take part in any pro­posed re­boot. “I don’t think it’s a good idea,” Carell told the

Daily News last year. “Fans of any show think that they want to see more of that show but I don’t re­ally (be­lieve) that’s the case, be­cause they want it to be ex­actly what it was, and there’s no way it can be ex­actly what it was.”
