'Hi, Billy Mays Possible Replacement Here...'

8/19/2009 2:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

 Billy Mays Possible ReplacementIt's over before it even began -- the company that was going to hold open auditions for Billy Mays' replacement has pulled the plug on the project, instead offering the spot to one of Billy's closest friends.

The President of Mighty Brand, Bill McAlister, tells TMZ they realized Mays was "irreplaceable" and have made an offer to Anthony Sullivan, his "Pitchmen" co-star. If Sullivan turns 'em down, the commercials will be strictly voice-overs.

We're told the deal thrown at Sullivan is the same one Mays had -- which is a "royalty contract" that netted Mays millions.

Anthony what's his name is annoying??- What & Billy May's wasn't?? Are they gonna give this guy a drug test BEFORE he takes the job? I knew there had to be something wrong with May's, the way he SCREAMED about everything! If that's not cocaine... well, I just don't know! But everybody rags on old Michael right?! Guess who else was a so-called "drug addict".

For years, I thought Billy Mays was Tim the Toolman's sidekick, gone psycho.
