Steve Carell replacement ideas have gone completely wild

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Ideas for replacements for the departing Steve Carell on “The Office” have gone completely wild – with pundits, fans and producers coming up with all sorts of off-the-wall thoughts. (Mel Gibson?!) Show producer Paul Lieberstein told E! Online that he wants to get Harvey Keitel to join the Dunder Mifflin paper company.

“Harvey Keitel is a crazy pick,” says the show’s Oscar Nunez with a laugh.

His preference? “I’d like to see them promote from within, either Melora Hardin or David Denman,” says the actor known as accountant Oscar Martinez. “But of course it’s not up to us. We’re just as excited as anyone to see what they’re going to do.”

With four episodes of “The Office” already in the can for Season 7, Nunez says that there’s no sign of the farewell blues creeping in on set as yet. “The Emmys were a big, big party and we had a great time. We just shot an episode with Timothy Olyphant of ‘Ed Wood’ and ‘Justified.’” That’s a pretty tough guy for Dunder Mifflin. “Well, he doesn’t have a Glock or any guns in the episode, as far as I know. Nothing like that. He’s just a regular office worker,” Nunez says.

Also, the team has its Season 6 coming out Tuesday (9/7) on DVD and Blu-ray Hi Def . 7. The collection includes deleted scenes, bloopers, and of course, such favorite episodes as Jim and Pam’s (John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer) wedding.
