what? the office is nothing without him imo

# 4

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

# 5

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.

# 6

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. :(

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.

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.
