    what? the office is nothing without him imo

  • Lisa2

    He IS the show, without him, the show isn’t the same. It’s like having I Love Lucy, without Lucy…..

  • Ethan

    Smart move, the show is already sucking bad. There are no good story lines left. He’s abandoning the ship while it’s still floating.

  • eli

    Nooo! I love him but I love him because of that show. He is so funny on there, but i dont love him that much in the movies. Stupid move. :(

  • D

    Oh my gosh! He IS The Office!
    I don’t think it would be a good idea to go on without him.
    He is briliant on that show, he will be very missed.

  • yeah

    Don’t do it Michael!

    I say – Will “The Office” be “The Office” without him? Maybe they will try & replace him as tried with other shows before to varying degrees of success or have one of the other male characters “take his position” as boss… Dwight (Rainn Wilson) who is after all “Assistant to the Regional Manager”
    -
    I would still watch.

    What a shame! Please don’t go!
