If this is true, then I have to admit: I’m more than a little stunned. But Paul Lieberstein, executive producer of NBC’s The Office, claims that only one man can replace Steve Carell, and that’s Harvey Keitel.
He told E! Online,
He’s probably the only guy who can do it, and he’s doing TV now… 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].
If he really is as serious as he claims, this could be wonderful. One problem: He’s not exactly asked Harvey about it:
I haven’t started any talks with his people, but Harvey would do a great job—a very different energy. And we don’t want to bring in another Michael, having someone play a very similar character because we have such a high regard for Steve.
Oddly enough, I now really want this to happen.
