Steve Carell ready for life after “The Office”

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: For those who haven’t seen last night’s “The Office” yet, skip ahead, as we’re about to drop a major spoiler.

Are you gone? I’m warning you. Leave until you’ve caught up with your DVR.

OK, so, Steve Carell’s character, Michael Scott, proposed to girlfriend Holly (Amy Ryan) and announced his plans to follow her to Colorado. We already knew that Carell planned to leave the show at the end of this season, and it appears that the pieces are starting to move into place for life without Carell.

But don’t feel bad for the actor. He’ll have plenty of projects on his plate once he leaves “The Office” on April 28.

THR compiles the lengthy list of places you’ll next find the comedian. He’ll star alongside Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling and Julianne Moore (to name a few) in “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” which opens July 29. After that, Carell reportedly is attached to star in New Line’s magician comedy “Burt Wonderstone.”

Beyond that, it’s speculation, with Carell attached to or lined up to produce a handful of projects. The one of note would have to Mandate Pictures’ “Great Hope Springs” with Meryl Streep, which would have Carell playing a marriage therapist who “tries to help a middle-aged couple rekindle their relationship,” according to THR.
