    Universal Wants To Go On An FBI Wedding With Steve Carell

    There is probably no comic leading man in Hollywood right now hotter than Steve Carell. It seems each week there is another project announced with the actor/comedian attached and this week is no different.

    Poster For 'Crazy, Stupid, Love' Reveals It Stars Steve Carell's Crotch & A High-Heeled Shoe

    We know it's pretty much the heart of the summer, but if you have plans to spend the last weekend of July doing anything other than sit in a movie theater, you might want to consider rearranging them. On one of the busiest release dates in recent memory, there seems to be something for everyone: blockbuster fans get "Cowboys & Aliens," lovers of cult films get "Attack the Block," those who like "Scarface"-esque dramas with breakout lead performances get Dominic Cooper in "The Devil's Double," indie types get Miranda July's "The Future" or Brendan Gleeson in sweary Irish action-comedy "The Guard," subtitle-philes get French thriller "Point Bla...

    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 ...

    Al Pacino To Star In Rocker Dramedy 'Imagine'

    Well, this is an interesting bit of casting. With Steve Carell busier than ever with "The Office" now in the rearview mirror, the comic actor has had to shed one of the many projects he's been linked to in the past few months. Dude has to eat and sleep sometime. Stepping away as an actor, but remain...

    Melanie Lynskey, T.J. Miller, Patton Oswalt & More Join 'Seeking A Friend At The End Of The World'

    This business moves fast. We'd barely finished hitting 'publish' on a post about "Community" star Gillian Jacobs joining the Steve Carell/Keira Knightley comedy-drama "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," and our inbox pinged with a press release from Focus Features, who recently acquired the...

    William Petersen, Adam Brody & Rob Corddry Join 'Seeking A Friend At The End Of The World'

    Most comedians, once they're anointed stars, use their newfound fame to sign on to seemingly dozens of projects, reaching a kind of overexposure in speedy time. After the success of "The 40 Year Old Virgin," it seemed as though Steve Carell was heading that way, with the likes of "Evan Almighty" and "Get Smart," roles that could have been filled by any comic star, clogging up his big screen appearances. But to his credit, now that he's freeing up his schedule by departing "The Office" last week, he's taking on more interesting roles -- the excellent-looking comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" lands this summer, and he's got more dramatic projects li...

    Jim Carrey Latest Big Star To Join Season Finale Of 'The Office'

    It may have suffered somewhat in recent seasons from a dip in form, especially compared to the superior nature of most of the rest of the NBC comedy line-up -- "Community," "Parks and Recreation" and "30 Rock" -- but for the most part, we've immensely enjoyed the last seven seasons of "The Office." While it may not be as near-flawless as the BBC series on which it was based, it's remained remarkably consistent across over ten times the length, thanks to a star-making performance from lead Steve Carell, and one of the deepest, richest comedic ensembles around, one that's helped to launch names like John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer and Ed Helms, a...

    Sylvester Stallone Thriller 'Headshots' & Steve Carell Comedy 'Burt Wonderstone' Both Lose Directors

    It's got to be hard for a director to walk away from a feature-directing gig. If you're lucky, you get to make a film once every couple of years, and, while some helmers are able to boost their income with rewrite work or commercials, or TV and music videos gigs, sometimes that one feature is your only income. But at the same time, you only get to make a certain number of movies in a career, and if the stars aren't aligning correctly, sometimes the only thing you can do is pack your bags. It's not an uncommon occurence -- Guillermo Del Toro leaving "The Hobbit" and Darren Aronofsky bailing on "The Wolverine" being two recent examples -- and i...

    Steve Carell & Keira Knightley Will Find Love At 'The End Of The World'

    As most movies -- and sometimes real life -- will tell you, love is all about timing. Those infinitesimal choices we make that lead us to running into someone we'll spend the rest of our life or just one night. And sometimes, the timing is just off. You're got a job in another city, or they're gradu...
