    Watch: Trailer For 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' Features Steve Carell, Jim Carrey & Lots Of Spray Tan

    While Steve Carell has been positioned as the next big comedy star, the projects he's chosen have been disappointments for the most part. For every "Crazy Stupid Love" there has been a "Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World," while an ambitious concept like "Dinner F...

    Steve Carell & Jim Carrey Get Britta-d As 'Community' Star Gillian Jacobs Joins 'Burt Wonderstone'

    Whether or not NBC's outstanding "Community" makes it to a fourth season -- and we dearly hope that it does, but given that the show was yanked from the schedule late last year, and is yet to make its way back, things are looking a little grim -- we're going to be seeing a lot more...

    Brad Garrett Joins 'Burt Wonderstone'

    "Burt Wonderstone" is one of those projects that flies just enough below the radar that we never really paid much attention to it. Yes, it was a very hot script (by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein) but in the past few months the project has amassed an outrageously wonderful ...

    James Gandolfini To Join Steve Carell & Jim Carrey In 'Burt Wonderstone'

    Search For Female Lead Narrowed To Olivia Wilde & Sarah SilvermanSince "The Sopranos" ended back in 2007, James Gandolfini's been doing pretty well for himself, all told. He might not have taken any roles with as major an impact on the cultural zeitgeist as angsty mob boss Tony Soprano, but he's man...

    Oliva Wilde & Steve Buscemi Will Create Magic In 'Burt Wonderstone'

    Well, she's funny, beautiful and a name that seems to be everywhere these days. So it's not exactly a big shock that Olivia Wilde beat out Michelle Monaghan, Judy Greer (our pick), Sarah Silverman (who was the final contender) and Jessica Biel for the female lead in upcoming magician comedy "Burt Wo...

    Jim Carrey Joins 'Burt Wonderstone' With Steve Carell

    Carell's 'Imagine' With Al Pacino Put Into Turnaround At Warner Bros.Up until now, the on screen pairings between Steve Carell and Jim Carrey have been fairly limited. Of course, Carell featured in "Bruce Almighty" where he was the unfortunate victim of Carrey's God-powered tomfoolery (and of course, his character was spun off into "Evan Almighty" which the less said, the better). They also both took voice roles in the animated "Horton Hears a Who!" a couple years back and irony of ironies, Carrey made a (pretty lacklustre) cameo appearance on the season finale of "The Office" last spring, of course, by this point Carell had exited the show. ...

    Jason Reitman To Rewrite Steve Carell Magician Comedy 'Burt Wonderstone'

    Considering how long it takes to actually get a movie made -- even the most hard-working of filmmakers can go three or four years between projects, through no fault of their own -- it's not surprising that many A-list screenwriters, or writer-directors, get through the lean years by taking script doctor gigs. It's fast, well-paid work, it rarely amounts to more than a dialogue polish, as the films are generally too close to production for major structural changes to take place, and, if the film turns out badly, it doesn't reflect badly on you, as any doctoring generally goes uncredited, which is why names from John Sayles to Joss Whedon have ...

    Steve Carell's 'Burt Wonderstone' Finds A New Director In Don Scardino

    Well, the tears have been shed and are now dry as Steve Carell officially exited "The Office" just a few weeks ago leaving the door open for a new boss to step in (this writer hopes the scene-stealing James Spader will do it but it will never happen -- but watch this, it's amazing). The actor is wasting too much time mourning his stint on the show as he's already moving full steam ahead on a number of projects. He's currently shooting "Seeking A Friend At The End Of The World" with Keira Knightley and later this summer he'll go toe-to-toe with Meryl Streep in "Great Hope Springs." But one project in particular has been in the works for a whil...
