The NYPost got a tip from some readers that a particular gentlemen in last week’s episode of “The Office” bore a striking resemblance to Steve Carell, with a beard (above). All they had was a tiny photo, so I took the liberty of tracking it down and screen-capturing the above. And I still can’t tell if this member of the “Queerenstein Bears” is actually Carell. On the one hand, it does look an awful lot like him. But on the other, it kind of looks like a hobo they pulled off the street. And since Carell was not killed off the show, is it possible that his character has fallen on hard times and is turning tricks in gay bars.
I don’t know. NBC will neither confirm nor deny. What do you think?
