The Office star Steve Carell hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend, and
“I don’t think so,” Carell replied. “It was a great experience. I love all those people, but I just don’t think it’s the best idea. I think maybe we should just leave it alone.”
After Kenan Thompson agreed that the show reboot is a great idea, one of Carell’s former officemates popped out of the audience to help convince him.
“People would really love to see an Office reboot,” said Ellie Kemper, who played Erin Hannon. “Especially me. Because I need that money. Let’s get that money, Steve.”
Carell shut Kemper down, just to hear from Ed Helms, who played Andy Bernard on the show.
After shutting him down just as fast, Carel; had to deal with Jenna Fischer, who played fan-favorite Pam Beesly. “Do you remember the last words that Pam secretly whispered to Michael as she left for Denver?” Fischer asked him from the crowd. “She said, ‘Steve, don’t be a d***. Do the reboot.’"
In classic Michael Scott fashion, Carell teased the audience one more time. After bringing the cast members up on stage, Carell said, “Feels like everyone wants this to happen. Do you guys want to see an Office reboot?” I am proud to announce officially — that we have a great show tonight.”
Watch the small cast reunion for yourself.
Though Carell doesn’t seem like he’s about it, I’d be totally into seeing where the characters are at now.
