Here's the trailer for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, an upcoming comedy that stars Steve Carell and Jim Carrey as a pair of rival magicians. The movie drops March 15th and also stars Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, Alan Arkin, James Gandolfini, Jay Mohr, and Gillian Jacobs. Wonderstone was directed by 30 Rock's most frequent director Don Scardino, who makes his feature debut here, and was written by John Francis Daley (Sam Weir from Freaks and Geeks!) and Jonathan M. Goldstein, who last wrote Horrible Bosses. Sure, it's impossible to top Arrested Development's GOB Bluth when it comes to magicians in comedies, but this still looks pretty good.

He explained, "I would have thought Dumb and Dumber To was a no-brainer, after all it's implied in the title." First off, zing! Second off, drats! Just the title Dumb and Dumber To is pretty funny. So it goes. Let's pour out some Turbo Lax for the fallen sequel.
Watching an actor or actress’ screen test or audition tape feels very voyeuristic, like you’re seeing something that’s not supposed to be seen. They’re reading back scenes that, more often than not, will make it into the movie, but they haven’t mastered the role yet — they’re just auditioning, and God knows I wouldn’t want my first draft of, well, anything to be looked at by thousands, if not millions.
But we’re not here to debate the morality of all that: let’s instead take a look at the audition tapes for 10 comedians, from Steve Carell to Emma Stone, for 10 different roles, all of which they eventually [...]
