Steve Carell to stay three more years at ‘The Office’

Steve Carell has signed on to play The Office’s Michael Scott for at least three more seasons.

This was mentioned by the Winnipeg Sun last week:

Steve Carell, who portrays the inept regional manager on NBC’s hugely popular The Office, says he’ll be with the Emmy-winning comedy for at least another three seasons despite his burgeoning big-screen career.

“All of the main cast are signed for three more. Beyond that, I have no idea.”

Ricky Gervais confirmed the news in his ‘This Side of Truth’ blog yesterday:

Had some great news today about the American version of The Office.

Steve Carell (now one of the most bankable film stars in the world) has just signed up for another three years with us.
