In April of this year, Steve Carell – star of the new movie Despicable Me – announced that the upcoming season of NBC’s The Office would probably be his last. Well, now he’s all but made it official.
At the premiere of Despicable Me, as seen in our gallery below, Carell said, “I think [season] 7 will be my last year. I want to fulfill my contract. I think it’s a good time to move on.”
When Asked if there’s anything that could change his mind, Carell said, “No. I just want to spend more time with my family.” Sadly, money changes everyone’s mind. And I honestly can’t see him just kicking back with his family but maybe he wants a break from everything.
I’m not that heartbroken over losing The Office, but when 30 Rock goes off the air I will weep uncontrollably for weeks on end. Just as an FYI for you.
