'The Office': Could Will Arnett be the new Steve Carell?

arnett-fox.jpgRumors continue to swirl about who will take Steve Carell's place on "The Office" when he leaves this season. We've all got our suggestions, but here's one that actually matters: Ricky Gervais, creator of "The Office," thinks Will Arnett is a good fit.

"Had a little meeting with NBC about various things and recommended Will Arnett for a regular in The Office. Thoughts? I think he's amazing," Gervais wrote on his blog.

Arnett's show, "Running Wilde," was canceled early this season, and there hasn't yet been news of him being cast in any pilots, so there's a good chance he's available. Plus, his frequent guest spots on "30 Rock" prove he fits in just fine with NBC's comedy line-up.

What do you think of Arnett as the new "Office" boss? Who is your pick? Weigh in below.
