Many of us think we’ve first met Steve Carell (Little Miss Sunshine, The Forty Year Old Virgin) when he was a correspondent on The Daily Show, playing Steve Carell. Many of us think we know him from The Office, where he plays Michael Scott. But he’s made a big splash in movies this last year alone with three big films: Date Night, Despicable Me and Dinner for Schmucks.
Carell talks about working with actors Tina Fey and Alan Arkin, and director Jay Roach, his sources of inspiration, and his path to becoming a comic actor. He also admits that he’s yet watch the British version of The Office, but says he will now after leaving the cast of the American version.
