The NBC comedy's executive producer, Greg Daniels, said today that Carell's exit will come before the season ends in May, the Associated Press is reporting. Carell, who was born in Concord and grew up in Acton, had previously announced he was leaving his role at Dunder Mifflin manager Michael Scott to focus on his movie career, which last year included starring roles in "Date Night," "Dinner for Schmucks," and "Despicable Me." Daniels said Carell will leave with four episodes remaining, which would put his departure sometime in April.
