Steve Carell has officially boxed up his stuff and left "The Office."
The funnyman, who spent seven seasons playing Dunder Mifflin's awkward office manager Michael Scott, filmed his last episode of the hit NBC series last Friday.
"Steve Carell's last day on 'The Office.' And the angels of comedy wept... #saddestdayever," co-star Rainn Wilson tweeted March 4.
Though a replacement for Carell has not yet been named, the Hollywood Reporter writes that the actor might return for occasional guest appearances.
In the meantime, Carell has films in his future. Besides playing a magician in the upcoming comedy "Burt Wonderstone," he's also planning to star in "Dogs of Babel," a drama about a linguistics professor who teaches his dog to talk in order to unravel the mystery surrounding his wife's "accidental" death.
