Steve Carell's departure from NBC's "The Office" isn't just bumming out fans of the hit show, but also one of his co-stars.
In an interview with Parade magazine, John Krasinski talks about what it was like knowing Carell is leaving and filming the last episode of "The Office" with him.
Krasinski said in the March 13 issue of the magazine that it was "completely bittersweet" shooting the star's last episodes. "It's an insanely special relationship we have with each other on the show, and Steve's leaving is the first time we've been snapped out of it and had to think about how much we all rely on each other."
Carell filmed his last show on March 4, and the episode is set to air on April 28.
Krasinski also talked about how much the star will be missed on set. "No one can replace (Carell)," he said. "That goes for him as an actor, because no one has the sense of humor he does, but also there's no person who has his incredible positivity and professionalism, and just a really good heart."
