"I figured the character would go back and visit everybody, but he wouldn't do it on camera at this point. I think he had grown past the idea of being in the documentary, that was my take on it... I just thought, yeah, he'd go back and visit, but he wouldn't want the camera crew to be documenting it."
- Former Office star Steve Carell explains why he won't be appearing in the show's series finale on May 16.

John Krasinski is "emotional" about the end of The Office.
The actor - who is married to Emily Blunt - has played Jim Halpert on the comedy for seven years and while he doesn't want to say goodbye, he is happy that he and his castmates have the opportunity to bring their storylines to a satisfactory conclusion.
"I get so emotional to think that we're ending the show. But I'm unbelievably proud to be a part of one that actually gets to end. Instead of being asked to leave, I actually get a shot at bringing the whole story and all the characters to a close," he said.
John, 33, also revealed he used to live in fear of the show ending and asked for some of the first episodes on DVD so he could show his mother. "We actually had a guy come down every Friday to the set and he'd be like, 'Ah man, this episode's so great. It's going so well. The dailies are looking great. You know this is the last episode, right? We're not going to pick it up.' And I was like, 'Can I at least get these on DVD to show my mom?' And he actually did give me the first six episodes on DVD, because we were sure we actually weren't going to get picked up," he explained.
Chace Crawford will miss his "therapists" when Gossip Girl ends. The 27-year-old actor is sad to be saying goodbye to the rest of the cast and crew on the show when the season ends, and will be particularly unhappy to lose his hair and make-up team as they had become his confidantes as he spent so much time with them.
"I saw them for, like, an hour everyday. I talked to them about my life problems. Some were like a therapist. I'm gonna miss those girls," he said.
Although the show hasn't yet finished filming its final season, Chace already knows what he wants to take away from the set as a memento of his time on the hit drama series: "I would take some of those suits my character wears if I could. I'm gonna try and steal some badass ashtrays, if I can fit them in my coat pocket."
And Chace thinks that five years playing Nate Archibald has made him lose his dignity because of the situations his character has been in. "I'm gonna look for my dignity. My dignity is somewhere on set. I think it happened around season two. Leading into season three, it was all out the window," he said.
Christina Hendricks "hates" to think about Mad Men ending. The flame-haired actress - who plays Joan Holloway in the 60s-set TV show, which was recently renewed for a sixth season - claims the program has "completely changed" her career and she doubts she will ever find a job she loves as much.
"It's completely changed my career. Instead of people wondering who you are, you walk in and they say, 'I love your show.' It's a nice way to start an audition. I hate to think of it ever finishing. I have concerns about finding something I'm going to fall in love with as much."
However, Christina - who is married to actor Geoffrey Arend - is looking forward to other projects and spending some time with her husband: "I've got a couple of things lined up for the next break, and I hope to enjoy my home and husband."
Christina, 37, was "smitten" with Geoffrey when she first met him because of his sense of humor. "It just became very obvious to me, I was smitten. He makes me laugh and he's my best friend and I would always rather be with him than not, so those are pretty good indications."
