JKrasinski_EHelms_RWilson_300_3

Here’s some grist for the watercooler for ya! Now that we know James Spader is being wooed to join The Office as a replacement for Kathy Bates’ CEO, Jo, and not for Steve Carell’s office manager, Michael, it seems increasingly likely (even inevitable?) that the sitcom’s producers will promote from within to fill the vacant post at the Scranton branch. And, as teased in this week’s Ask Ausiello, the current frontrunners for the job are Jim, Andy and Dwight. Assuming the execs need a little help making the big decision, we’ve compiled a handy list of each contender’s pros and cons. And, just to keep things democratic (the Fourth of July is coming up), we embedded a poll for you to weigh in, too. READ MORE & VOTE

Emmys_LeadActor_Comedy_514_2

Last year’s Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series race was a David-and-Goliath tale, as relative newcomer Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) brought down comedy giant Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) by denying him a third consecutive win. This year, in addition to both of those likely repeat nominees, there’s also Steve Carell to consider. Having bid farewell to The Office, his swan song season becomes Emmy’s last chance to award him for his seminal role. Will he grab gold? Or will a lovable long shot like Community’s Joel McHale emerge from the pack to change the game? REVIEW CONTENDERS & VOTE
