When they first talked about a second Anchorman, the original idea was to do it as a Broadway musical. They were legitimately considering this. So Adam McKay and Will Ferrell contacted us and said "What do you think about we go to Broadway, we do a Broadway musical Anchorman 2, and like the Marx Brothers we sorta work out all sorts of bits while we're doing the stage play, [...]
The most beloved SNL hosts over the years can make sketch comedy magic with anyone. Justin Timberlake, for example, seemed to hit it off so well with Jimmy Fallon in the early 2000s, but even after Fallon left the show, Timberlake still hosted stellar episodes with whichever lineup of actors and writers happened to be working those seasons. Alec Baldwin is another example — despite being famous for his Scoutmaster and Schweddy Balls bits, Baldwin has never been dependent on any particular writer or cast member to make him look good. Baldwin understands that it's about making everyone else look good, and that's why he's hosted the show 16 [...]
Steve Carell is making a new show for TBS. The network has given a pilot order to Tribeca, a comedy police procedural co-created by the comedian and his wife Nancy Carell (née Walls), THR reports. It's a single-camera about a bunch of eccentric people working in the LAPD's RHCU (Really Heinous Crimes Unit), centered on Angie Tribeca, a 10-year vet of the department.
In addition to writing the pilot, the Carells will also executive produce the show via Carell's production company Carousel. Steve Carell will be directing the pilot. He previously wrote and directed a few episodes of The Office and co-wrote The 40-Year-Old Virgin with Judd Apatow. TBS [...]
The Office's series wrap party went down in Scranton, PA on Saturday, and in case you missed the news, it included ten thousand fans and a glorious surprise attendance by Steve Carell. As Splitsider’s resident Pennsylvanian, I had some dippy eggs and scrapple then immediately made the trek to the Electric City to check out the home of Dunder Mifflin and pay homage to one of my favorite shows of all time. Here’s a recap of the day complete with cast member photos and video clips:
Here's the new trailer for The Way, Way Back, a comedy-drama starring Steve Carell and a ton of other amazing people that hits theaters July 5th. The movie was written and directed by Nat Faxon (Ben and Kate) and Jim Rash (Community), who won Oscars this year for scripting The Descendants. Hopefully, Jim Rash will win an Oscar for acting this time around, for playing "Guy Who's Doctor Said Not to Get Water on His Face."
Karen and Michael reunion alert! THR reports that Parks and Rec's Rashida Jones has been cast as the lead in Steve and Nancy Carell's TBS comedy pilotTribeca. The pilot is "a single-camera satirical look at a police procedural anchored by Angie Tribeca (Jones), a 10-year veteran of the LAPD's elite RHCU — Really Heinous Crimes Unit." Jones's character is described as "a lone wolf who is capable, committed, strong and not thrilled when she's told she has to work with a partner. A cut-to-the-chase girl who speaks her mind, she treads where many fear to venture." Jones will begin filming the pilot in February [...]
From 2003, here's Steve Carell's original audition for the movie Anchorman, back in his Daily Show correspondent days. A semi-improvised exchange between him and an off-camera Will Ferrell, it's no wonder this audition got him the job.
Steve Carell has been saying for over a year now that he doesn't want to come back for The Office's May 16th finale and showrunner Greg Daniels denied Carell's involvement in the final episode as recently as last week, but despite all that, TV Line reports today that Carell will be back to say goodbye one last time. TV Line's source says that Carell's appearance in the last episode is closer to a cameo than a full-on guest appearance, but he will allegedly be in the episode somewhere – unless this is just another lie in this constantly flip-flopping story.
Steve Carell and James Gandolfini, who both recently appeared in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, are making another movie together – this time for TV. Deadline reports that Carell and Gandolfini have signed on to star in and executive produce Bone Wars, an HBO movie based on the true story of rival paleontologists Edward Drinker Cope and Othniel Charles Marsh in the 1800s. The movie is a comedy following "The Bone Wars" (aka "The Great Dinosaur Rush"), in which Cope and Marsh got into an intense competition to discover the most dinosaur fossils, leading both of their lives into turmoil. Gandoflini will play Marsh and Carell will play Cope, [...]
The Anchorman 2 cast are all in the midst of their final promotional push this week, but last night on The Daily Show, guests Will Ferrell, David Koechner, Paul Rudd, and former Daily Show correspondent Steve Carell decided to approach their appearance a little differently, starting first with some knowing glances between Stewart and Carell then slowly devolving to a very slapsticky destruction of the Daily Show green room decor.
From Anchorman 2's Australian premiere, here's Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and David Koechner singing "Afternoon Delight." Nearly 10 years later, it still sounds so surprisingly good for an a cappella song from a group of comedians.
The TBS network announced the batch of new shows it's developing this morning, including some intriguing projects from Steve Carell and screenwriter Diablo Cody and a lot of generic TBS-y sounding stuff. Carell is developing a show tentatively called Tribeca that he's executive producing with his wife Nancy Carell. It's a comedy centered on a bunch of socially inept LAPD crime scene investigators, described as "an eccentric but brilliant group of people who investigate crime, reveal way too much personal information about themselves and refuse to rest until justice has been served." Screenwriter Diablo Cody is developing a show called Me Time with Diablo Cody, a comedic show that [...]
