E! Online’s Kristin Dos Santos reports that The Office showrunner Paul Lieberstein is interested in tough-guy movie actor Harvey Keitel as a possible replacement for Steve Carell this season:
“He’s probably the only guy who can do it, and he’s doing TV now,” Paul tells us of the Oscar nominee, who recently starred on ABC’s Life on Mars.
Paul is so jazzed about the idea of Harvey joining the show, he already has a bulk of the maybe-replacement’s role already written.
“He’s an old salesman who thought he could retire and the stock market went down, and he has to come out of retirement to work for a few years.”
