One of the most interesting story lines going into the new television season is the question of who will replace Steve Carell as the centerpiece of "The Office." The show is entering its seventh season, which will be the final one for Carell and his paternal boss character Michael Scott. The producers have committed to soldiering forward with the show after Carell's departure, though it's unclear who they might be recruiting. According to producer Paul Lieberstein, the number one choice to fill in for Carell is a strange one: Harvey Keitel. "I haven't started any talks with his people, but Harvey would do a great job — a very different energy," Lieberstein (who also plays beleaguered Hr rep Toby Flenderson on the show) told E!. "And we don't want to bring in another Michael, having someone play a very similar character because we have such a high regard for Steve."
