TCA Press Tour: Steve Carell's co-stars respond to his exit from 'The Office'

Scarell When this season wraps, the world’s best boss, Michael Scott, will be leaving the Dunder Mifflin office one last time. Steve Carell officially announced last month that he will not be renewing his contract and will be leaving NBC’s “The Office” at the end of this season, the show’s seventh.

The news stunned some fans — who else can make burning his foot on a George Foreman Grill hilariously endearing? What other boss takes his employees for a nice lunch at Hooters? For others, Carell’s departure isn’t too surprising, with some questioning whether the show’s appeal is dwindling.

We caught up with a couple of Dunder Mifflin's star employees, Stanley (Leslie David Baker) and Phyllis (Phyllis Smith), at a TCA after party this weekend to get their thoughts on Carell’s exit and the possibility of Dwight or Andy taking the reins.
