Steve Carell, one of American comedy's on the whole admired faces who edited a school tabloid as a child, is at the present renowned as the funniest man on the cover of Life Magazine and on NBC's SNL, where he hosted the 2005-2006 season premiere. He turn out to be an strangely adaptable comic after more than two decades of improve skits and bit parts, and received the 2006 Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in Television Comedy for the leading role of Michael Scott in his rewrite of Britain's existential comedy "The Office" (2005).
Steve John Carell was born on August 16, 1962, in an Italian-American family in Concord, USA. He was trained at The Fenn School, an all boys private school in Concord, Massachusetts, then at Middlesex School in Concord. He studied and graduated from Denison University in Granville, Ohio, then took the theatre at Chicago's Second City troupe. He made his first appearance in films in 1991, as Tesio in Curly Sue (1991). From 1990-1996 he trained improvisational comedy class and also performed with The Second City band in Chicago. In the period of the 1990s he was penning for The Dana Carvey Show, and then he had a date as one of correspondents on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
A resident of Concord, MA and an alumnus of Chicago's well-known Second City comedy troupe, Steve Carell achieved early knowledge with stints at the Windy City's Goodman and Wisdom Bridge Theaters. Following his feature debut in the 1991 comedy Curly Sue, Carell made a name for himself in television as a playwright/performer on The Dana Carvey Show. In the years that followed, He would often swapped between film and television, and he continued to do so after joining the cast of The Daily Show in 1999. Sharp-eared television audience would distinguished Carell as the voice of crime-fighter Gary (a character that he played opposite Daily Show co-star Stephen Colbert) on Saturday Night Live's popular TV Funhouse part "The Ambiguously Gay Duo." Next roles in such little-seen features as Tomorrow Night and Suits, Carell would revisit to the small screen for a main supporting role in ex-Seinfeld star Julia Louis-Dreyfus' short-lived sitcom Watching Ellie.
In 2003, Steve Carell almost stole the show from comedian megastar Jim Carrey with his role as a hatefultelevision commentator in the delightful comedy Bruce Almighty, before once again stepping into a faketelevision studio to depict cerebrally challenged weather analyst Brick Tamland in the 2004 Will Ferrell vehicle Anchorman.Then he left and appeared in The Office, for which he won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy Series in 2005. He also made a short but ineffaceable small part opposite Anchorman co-star Ferrell in the big-screen adaptation of Bewitched.
Steve Carell's Anchorman contemporaries also helped him out in recognizing his breakout part, later on that same summer: the unfortunate guiltless title character of The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Drafted by him and directed by Anchorman producer Judd Apatow, the vulgar yet sweet comedy had a gloomy August release, yet its coarse, adult-oriented laughs resonated with much of the same viewers that made The Wedding Crashers an R-rated achievement story just a few weeks earlier. Like Ferrell before him,he rapidly found himself in the desirable place of being able to pick and choose from a number of high-priced, high valued jesting roles, amongst them the Bruce Almighty sequence movie Evan Almighty. Greatly budgeted and sponsored, Evan was one of summer 2007's big dissatisfactions, an effects-driven comedy that made a respectable sum at the box office, even though not virtually enough to cover its inflamed cost. He extended things back somewhat for the character focused Dan in Real Life later on that year.
Steve Carell shot to fame after his getaway performances as Evan Baxter opposite Jim Carrey in Bruce Almighty (2003) and as Uncle Arthur opposite Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell in Bewitched (2005). He co wrote the unique script for the summer box-office hit The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) which was selected as one of the Top Ten movies of 2006 by the American Film Institute. At the similar time he appeared in Little Miss Sunshine (2006), a sovereign dark comedy that gives an abnormally sharp and ironic view on America. In 2007 he reprised his role as Evan Baxer, satisfying Jim Carrey's leading-man shoes as a legislator asked by God to build a huge ark in Evan Almighty (2007), the second episode of the "Almighty" licence, co-starring Lauren Graham and Morgan Freeman. In 2008 he united with Jim Carrey in extremely successful animatronics hit Horton Hears a Who! (2008) then appeared as Agent Maxwell Smart in popular comedy Get Smart (2008).
Steve Carell has been enjoying a content family life with his wife, actress Nancy Walls, whom he met when she was a student in an improvement class he was teaching at The Second Citycomedy troupe in Chicago. The duo have two kids, daughter Elisabeth (born in May 2001), and John who took birth in June 2004. He is staying with his family in Los Angeles, USA.
