Advertisements You're thinking of it too outside the show. These weren't famous movie star people who might have other movies and acting jobs lined up, these were interviewees for a paper sales manager job in Scranton. They're replacing Michael Scott. I have no idea who this Steve Carrell name is you mention. From inside the show perspective, it's Finger Lakes or Jim. Unless Jo tells them it's her friend. That's how work stuff goes. The dude who ate the sandwich -- nope. The arrogant guy who was creepy -- nope. British dude via the video -- nope. Now Finger Lakes was a bit weird mentioning Finger Lakes over and over, but they seemed to think otherwise he was good. I think the Finger Lakes comments could be overlooked if the rest of the interview went well.
