Steve Carell was basically just called in for a disciplinary hearing.
The Beautiful Boy actor hosted Saturday Night Live this past weekend and decided to field questions from the audience during his opening monologue.
One of them inquired whether The Office would have a much-desired reboot, allowing the 56-year-old to reprise his most famous role as Michael Scott.
Steve’s answer was a crushing blow to fans of the series as he said, “Actually, I don’t think so, it was a great experience and I love all these people but I just don’t think it’s the best idea. I think maybe we should just leave it alone.”
But before they even had time to wipe their collective tears, Steve’s former “colleagues” appeared on stage to set him straight.

“People would really love to see an Office reboot,” said Ellie Kemper, who played receptionist Erin Hannon “‘Cause I need that money. Let’s get that money, Steve!”
She was backed up by Ed Helms (AKA Andy Bernard) who said, “I just don’t think you understand just how much money we’re talking about. Like, you wouldn’t have to do all those sad movies anymore.”
Finally, Jenna Fischer — better known as Pam Beesley — told the SNL host: “Steve, do you remember the last words that Pam secretly whispered to Michael as she left for Denver? She said, ‘Steve, don’t be a dick, do the reboot.’”
You know what to do, Steve…
