Funnyman Harvey Keitel To Replace Steve Carell On ‘The Office?’

Thursday, September 2 by

"Could we have this removed, please?"

Here’s some nutso casting that seems to be torn from Peter Berg’s playbook (aka left field), "The Office" showrunne Paul Lieberstein wants to replace the departing Steve Carell with professional actor/cleaner Harvey Keitel. Though no talks have begun, the plan would be to bring him in as an old salesman who attempted to retire, but was pulled back into the workforce after the stock market collapse. Speaking of Keitel’s comedy potential, Lieberstein had this to say:

"He’s a real tough guy, but I saw him in ‘Life on Mars’ and I saw a lot more comedy in his work, just little slivers of it, little things he would do that made me think he’s capable of a lot more than what (he’s done)."

Also, he did Little Nicky. So, you know he’s not above this. (Reuters)
