    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.

    Is Katherine Tate a big name? I've never heard of or seen her before and didn't care for her. Want her gone.

    I've never liked Darryl and would like him fired.

    Spader was good but man, what a huge forehead. I think he should get it. Actually I liked Ray Barone best.

    Toby. :(

    Glad they got rid of the Gabe character. Added nothing.

    Can they just pay Steve Carrell 10 mil per ep and bring him back?

    There weren't any good interviews, so I can see Jim choosing Tate because it would be safe for him. Jo told him not to **** it up and told him to keep her friend in mind if there were no good choices. Between that and all the stuff Bryan posted, it seems to me that they set it up right there.

    Many signs point to Tate. However, given her commitment to "Much Ado..." through the summer, I don't see how she could possibly be available to film The Office.

    My tin foil hat solution - she could initially manage the office using video conferencing (after all - David Brent did his 'interview' via DVD).

    But there is no way that Catherine Tate will withdraw from the play - if the role requires she be in America for those dates she won't be the new manager (me now a hostage to fortune).

    Here's an out of the box idea for the new Manager.

    How about someone we've already seen before working for Sabre in a different capacity who now has time to run Scranton.

    Ladies and gentleman, may I suggest Christian Slater to play Christian Slater, regional Manager?

    He can play a wacky version of himself.
    Win, win.

    If we're going to go in that direction, we can have James Franco do it. He's had every other job in the last few years. :)

    Thank you! I was trying to figure out who that was (Jim Carey). I agree, I think he's too big of a star to take the role.

    Spader was funny, but too overpowering. It might be too much like Michael only not as good. (Although I'm glad, Michael is gone, I think he was burning out). He was brilliant for a long time though. Good for him going off to mix things up.

    After watching the episode again, I can safely conclude that none of these interviewees will be chosen. I would take Spader in a heartbeat over Catherine Tate if given the choice between the two of them.







    Ed Helms IMO

    Every time Angela says something like, "I'm speaking for myself, not myself and the Senator," I crack up. It should be old and stale by now, but she's good at the delivery, I guess.

    :up:

    I forgot about Slater having appeared in The Office (S06E14).
    Great idea!

    I would take many heartbeats to check that Spader's CV was for real and that he was not delusional.

    According to Wikipidia

    A CV elaborates on education to a greater degree than a résumé and is expected to include a comprehensive listing of professional history including every term of employment, academic credential, publication, contribution or significant achievement >

    Out of the candidates shown and how they performed during the episode, Spader gets my vote.

    What I really wish is that they would cast a relative unknown. Someone people will just watch for the new character instead of constantly comparing him/her to something they did in the past. Ain't gonna happen, though, so I hope it's Spader.
