The michael scott replacement plan

  1. 1. The Michael Scott Replacement Plan http://theofficestuff.com
  2. 2. Considering the Michael Scott replacement here are 3 alternatives for executives of The Office <ul><li>Now Hiring, Michael Scott replacement. Season eight of The Office had better be on the drawing board and in some serious planning stages-STAT! Officially announced, by Steve Carell himself, the actor’s final season will begin this fall. Carell’s contract obligations expire after seven seasons in 2011 and he indicates that he does not want to renew or extend </li></ul>http://theofficestuff.com
  3. 3. Michael Scott Replacement <ul><li>Steve Carell plays Michael Scott, the always oblivious regional manager for a mid-range paper company located in Scranton, Pennsylvania. His unorthodox management techniques, mixed with his self-absorbed flavor of humor and fun are a human resource nightmare. With this combination of management style you are left torn between feeling sorry for his ignorance and just thinking he is an idiot. </li></ul>http://theofficestuff.com
  4. 4. Michael Scott Replacement <ul><li>Carell pulled this character off (that’s what she said) for six seasons leaving the producers and writers faced with a difficult choice to make in his absence. </li></ul><ul><li>I am no television executive, but from the outside looking in it would seem that they have only three directions to go if they want the smash hit show to continue </li></ul>http://theofficestuff.com
  5. 5. Michael Scott Replacement <ul><li>In my opinion, those choices are: </li></ul><ul><li>Replace the Michael Scott character with another actor. </li></ul><ul><li>Promote a character from within to take over as regional manager </li></ul><ul><li>Create a new character to fill in the regional manager position </li></ul>http://theofficestuff.com
  6. 6. Michael Scott Replacement <ul><li>Let’s look at each option in depth and discuss the Pros and Cons of each alternative. This is the exact way that Jim Halpert would look at this if he were in charge of making this important decision </li></ul>http://theofficestuff.com
  7. 7. Michael Scott Replacement <ul><li>Replace the Michael Scott character with another actor . </li></ul><ul><li>Pros: Two words, Darrin Stephens. When Dick York was replaced by Dick Sargent in Bewitched how did that make you feel? Weird at first but you warmed up to the change. Depending on which actor steps in it could be a homerun for the show. </li></ul><ul><li>Cons: Who could replace Carell’s mannerisms and actions with the same total self-unawareness that Steve depicts in his Michael Scott character? </li></ul>http://theofficestuff.com
  8. 8. Michael Scott Replacement <ul><li>Pros: A likely candidate for the job is Jim Halpert who once filled one shoe of the management leg. Dwight Schrute, already the assistant to the regional manager could step in and run the office in tyranny. Or maybe even brown-nosed, ivy-leaguer, Andy Bernard sneaks in and back doors both of them for the job. Any of these three would make a hilarious story line based on their established characters. </li></ul><ul><li>Cons: If either Jim or Dwight gets the nod there is the possibility of their interactions fading and who doesn’t love Jim’s pranks and Dwight’s incessant complaining to the boss about him. Andy would be a good short term pick for the novelty but in the long run we all like to see him in consistent head nodding, phrase repetition, and mimicking his superiors to attempt to get ahead of the competition. </li></ul><ul><li>Promote a character from within to take over as regional manager </li></ul>http://theofficestuff.com
  9. 9. Michael Scott Replacement <ul><li>Create a new character to fill in the regional manager position </li></ul><ul><li>Pros: Again depending on the actor a new face could work. Rumored choices for the role mentioned have been Paul Rudd, a few supporting actors from Saturday Night Live, and even creator Ricky Gervais. New bosses have been introduced before like Charles Miner, Vice President of Northeast sales, from season five and Jo Bennett, Sabre CEO, from season 6 and seemed to have gone over well. </li></ul><ul><li>Cons: New characters are volatile and the regional manager’s role is an important one to the continuity of the show, unlike a supporting role such as QA Rep. Creed Bratton. The choice of the character and actor both could be hit or miss. </li></ul>http://theofficestuff.com
  10. 10. Michael Scott Replacement <ul><li>In my opinion, the best choice, of the three mentioned, is to create a new character for the regional manager. And the least volatile choice would be to bring in to the story Ricky Gervais David Brent character. It’s an established character that still gets lots of laughs and seems to be good fit for the show’s model. Ricky created this model so this choice to me seems like a no-brainer. Pay him lots more money and keep the show going for another 3 years or so. </li></ul>http://theofficestuff.com
  11. 11. Michael Scott Replacement <ul><li>I don’t envy the decisions that have to be made by The Office executives. Of the three alternatives for the Michael Scott replacement, bring on a new character, new actor or moving someone else in to the position seem to be the only alternatives available for the series to continue. And of those three, it seems that coaxing Ricky Gervais’ David Brent to take on the lead would be the path of least resistance. </li></ul>http://theofficestuff.com
