Will Arnett out of “Office” thanks to new gig?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: I guess this means we can take Will Arnett’s name out of the running to replace Steve Carell on “The Office.”

The “Arrested Development” star – whose most recent sitcom, “Running Wilde,” didn’t – has been tapped to join Christina Applegate in an untitled NBC sitcom produced by Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Video Productions, according to THR.

“The single camera comedy … takes an irreverent look at parenthood through the point of view of an acerbic working mother (Applegate), along with her stay-at-home husband (Arnett) and opinionated parents,” THR writes.

Arnett will be on the “Office” season finale. He’s also a regular guest star on Tina Fey’s “30 Rock.” Some reports had him as a potential replacement for Carell, but that seems unlikely now.
