E! News hit the red carpet for Steve Carrell’s new movie ‘Despicable Me’ last night, and Steve made it clear he was not joking when he told BBC Radio he would leave ‘The Office’ after the coming 2010-2011 season.

“I just think it’s time,” Steve told our Kristina Guerrero. “I want to fulfill my contract. When I first signed on I had a contract for seven seasons, and this coming year is my seventh. I just thought it was time for my character to go.”

But according to Steve, The Office could go on without him. “It doesn’t certainly mean the end of the show. I think it’s just a dynamic change to the show, which could be a good thing, actually. Add some new life and some new energy…I see it as a positive in general for the show.”
