Washington DC, [USA] Nov 18 (ANI): If you are rooting for ‘The Office’ reboot, there is bad news for you. Steve Carell has made it clear that he won’t be reprising his role as Michael Scott.
Carell shut down ‘The Office’ reboot rumors during his ‘Saturday Night Live’ opening monologue. The monologue started with an audience member asking if Carell would consider rebooting the 2013 popular series.
“No, actually I don’t think so. It was a great experience. I love all those people. But I just don’t think it’s the best idea. I think we should just leave it alone,” the Hollywood actor said.
Taking the interaction further, Ellie Kemper, who played secretary Erin Hannon in the serial, popped up in the audience and tried to convince Carell to hop on board with the idea of a possible reboot.
People would really love to see that ‘Office’ reboot, cause I need that money. Let’s get that money, Steve!”
The ‘Get Smart’ again refused to give it a thought. Following this, Former “Office” stars Ed Helms and Jenna Fischer attempted to attempt to push Carell into the reboot. You wouldn’t have to do all those sad movies anymore,” Helms said to Carell. “Steve, don’t be a d___, do the reboot,” Jenna Fischer followed.
However, Carell did not give in and concluded the monologue by saying, “I am proud to announce officially.that we have a great show tonight!”
According to Fox News, in October, answering why he does not want to be a part of the reboot, Carell said, “Apart from the fact that I just don’t think that’s a good idea, it might be impossible to do that show today and have people accept it the way it was accepted 10 years ago.”
This was Carell’s third appearance on ‘Saturday Night Live’.
