Steve Carell Uses The Friends Method, Refuses To Return To The TV Show He Left Fairly Recently

The big question on everyone’s mind these days is: When will the cast of Friends reunite for something along the lines of an hour-long special, or maybe even a movie, just so we can get a sense of where all the characters are at right now in their careers and family lives, etc.? While both Joey and Rachel refuse to give into popular demand, the rest of the cast has yet to deny the “rumors,” so THERE’S STILL HOPE! Just slightly behind the big Friends question, though, is this question: When will Michael return to The Office??? Now? Is it now? Next season? Like, early next season? Or like…? WHEN? Has it AT LEAST been discussed? From the LA Times:

No, it hasn’t been discussed.

Do you really think that people want to see Michael Scott again? I think the people who say they want to see Michael Scott reappear would be ultimately slightly disappointed. I think you always wish for something that you don’t sincerely want to come true. And I think in a way it’s better to imagine where Michael and Holly are at this point than actually see it.

Looks like we have ourselves a regular JOEY over here. We all just have to hope that eventually there will come a time when all creative TV and movie types realize that we never want to imagine anything for ourselves or accept that anything is over. Give you to us now, Steve Carell! Come back to the office with Holly, both of you dressed up as Santa Claus in the Christmas episode! This is such bullshit! “This world is bullshit!” -Fiona Apple, 1997, talking about how Steve Carell refuses to make a guest appearance on the 100th season of The Office!
