Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011)
Crazy, Stupid, Love Synopsis
At fortysomething, straight-laced Cal Weaver (Steve Carell) is living the dream--good job, nice house, great kids and marriage to his high school sweetheart. But when Cal learns that his wife, Emily (Julianne Moore), has cheated on him and wants a divorce, his "perfect" life quickly unravels. Worse, in today's single world, Cal, who hasn't dated in decades, stands out as the epitome of un-smooth. Now spending his free evenings sulking alone at a local bar, the hapless Cal is taken on as wingman and protege to handsome, thirtysomething player Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling). In an effort to help Cal get over his wife and start living his life, Jacob opens Cal's eyes to the many options before him: flirty women, manly drinks and a sense of style that can't be found at Supercuts or The Gap. Cal and Emily aren't the only ones looking for love in what might be all the wrong places: Cal's 13-year-old son, Robbie, is crazy about his 17-year-old babysitter, Jessica, who harbors a crush on Cal. And despite Cal's makeover and his many new conquests, the one thing that can't be made over is his heart, which seems to keep leading him back to where he began.

Foxcatcher's Main Character Seems To Have Declared War On The Director
Foxcatcher is in theaters now, and is earning raves for Miller’s direction, as well as for the acting performances of the three male leads – Tatum, Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo. Could this controversy start to damage the film’s reputation? Or is it all a massive misunderstanding?

Foxcatcher Is A Masterpiece
I could dig, analyze and appreciate Foxcatcher for years. All of that being said, Foxcatcher is remarkable. It is a stirring thesis about how wealthy power brokers manipulate situations, and how those without influence are seduced.

Steve Carell To Star In The New Looney Tunes Movie
Just because you don't hear about a certain in-development movie for a number of years doesn't actually mean that the project will never end up on the silver screen. Some are just destined to spend a bit of time in what has been dubbed "Development Hell." Take, for example, the Looney Tunes Acme factory film. We first wrote about the feature all the way back in October 2010, but haven't heard a peep about it since. That is, until now.

Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher Delayed Until 2014
IndieWire reports Miller and the producers are pushing the planned December release of Foxcatcher off until 2014. This is the point in which I jump up and down, beating my chest, yelling, “Are you kidding me?” Luckily, Sony Pictures wisely released the film’s first trailer and gave us something to bide our time with, and boy is it a doozy.

Steve Carell Transforms Himself Into A Killer In First Foxcatcher Image
I've had my eye on Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher for ages, and for a lot of the obvious Oscar-baity reasons. It's the follow-up film from the director of Moneyball and Capote, and tells another true story with a tinge of murder, about how the heir to a massive fortune came to sponsor a wrestling team and eventually murder one of the players. And, as you might expect from the guy who made Moneyball, Foxcatcher has a fantastic cast in place to draw you in

Channing Tatum And Steve Carell's Oscar Contender Foxcatcher Gets Key December Release
It sounds a drastic shift for Miller, though Capote was a true-crime drama-thriller driven by elaborate characters and top-shelf acting. Carell and Ruffalo certainly is capable of soul-searching performances. The wild card will be Tatum, who absolutely has grown and matured as an actor.

Supervillainy, Fatherhood And The Pain Of Rejection: Steve Carell Talks Despicable Me 2

Read on below to discover the origins of Gru’s voice, fear of becoming a too overprotective parent, and the horrible, lasting effect that romantic rejection early in life can have.

Alexander And The Terrible, Horrible... Casts Aussie Child Actor As The Lead
Kids these days. Well, more specifically, kid stars these days. Just when you think we've gotten away with making people famous way, way too early, allowing the Jodie Fosters and Natalie Portmans of the world to grow up just fine, you get a Lindsay Lohan or Corey Haim or Amanda Bynes to break your heart all over again. And the crazy thing is, we keep making more of these kid stars. You'd think they might be able to make a system like the way they have stunt bears

Steve Carell Appears On Ellen As Despicable Me 2's Antihero Gru
Gru is undeniably a crowd sensation, showcased best when he’s allowed to run around and dance in the audience to some disco. Not a whole lot of actual conversation about the movie takes place, seeing as how to Gru, there is no movie, but we do find out that he’s from Albuquerque and that he ran into Ellen at a Starbucks on a previous occasion.

If you haven’t caught the film, yet, it’s still playing in some theaters, but if you are just waiting for the home entertainment release, you’ll be able to purchase the film beginning on June 25. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as if Warner Bros.

Steve Carell And Tina Fey's Mail-Order Groom Gets Pushed Back
Date Night wasn't a great movie by any means, but Carell and Fey did make for a funny leading couple and had some really good chemistry. It's too bad that we'll have to wait a while before we see them on screen together again, but at least a delay is better than a cancellation.

Tattoos, Vegas Crowds And Rodney Dangerfield: Jim Carrey And Steve Carell Talk Burt Wonderstone
“I think magicians are a lot more arrogant,” Carrey said. “That’s what bothered me about magicians growing up. I was always fascinated by it growing up, they’re kind of like, ‘Abracadabra, you’re an idiot!’ They don’t let you in on the joke. Comedians are in on the joke, unless you’re Andy Kaufman.”

It presumably won’t take any amount of elaborately constructed mirrors or intentional distraction to make The Incredible Burt Wonderstone a runaway hit.

This tongue-in-cheek trailer features Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi as Las Vegas magicians Burt Wonderstone and Anton Marvelton at the high point of the dynamic duo's career. But that has passed. Nowadays, audiences want something new and strange. Wonderstone and Marvelton are playing to dwindling crowds while a street performer (Jim Carrey) steals their thunder with bizarre fetes and grungy goth fashion sense.

Meryl Streep Wants A Cameo In Anchorman 2

Steve Carell Will Lose The Lottery In Disney Comedy
Do you ever feel like you must be the unluckiest person in the world? Well, then you would probably relate on some level to the plight of one poor shmuck in Spain who was the only member of his very small town to not win the lottery. While his neighbors celebrating an auspicious win that netted them $950 million, he was the lone loser. It's a story so sad that it's pretty hysterical, so Disney is developing the premise into a new comedy.

Bennett Miller's Moneyball Follow-Up Finds A Home At Sony

It’s kind of unbelievable, given his distinct gravel and recognizable delivery, that Pacino hasn’t been asked to voice an animated character before over the course of his illustrious career.

Adding either of those two to any project would get me excited, but adding both to a Kaufman production has me gasping for air. Winslet, of course, earned her nominations for playing Jim Carrey’s elusive soulmate in Kaufman’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Keener, meanwhile, played meta games with John Cusack and a frumpy Cameron Diaz for the brilliant Being John Malkovich.
