Steve Carell has confirmed that he will be leaving NBC's hit show The Office after its seventh season completes this Fall. Carell told Entertainment Weekly at the Nokia Theatre premiere of Despicable Me that his reasons are simple, "I want to fulfill my contract. I think it’s a good time to move on... I just want to spend more time with my family.” Reason enough. Besides, Carell is a bona fide Movie Star anyway and has no problem turning a buck for a studio. Carell's last film Date Night has made a whopping $150 million at the Box Office.
