THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN
STEVE CARELL (Andy Stitzer / Writer / Executive Producer) is well known for his contributions as a correspondent on the Emmy award-winning Comedy Central television program The Daily Show, but with back-to-back breakout performances in the hit feature comedies Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, opposite Will Ferrell, and Bruce Almighty, opposite Jim Carrey, he is refreshingly poised for leading-man status.
Carell is next set to star in a slew of upcoming film projects, including most notably starring as secret agent Maxwell Smart in the Warner Bros. feature adaptation of the popular television series Get Smart. He is currently filming the black comedy Little Miss Sunshine opposite Greg Kinnear and Toni Collette and simultaneously voicing the lead character in the DreamWorks animated feature Over the Hedge.
Carell recently co-starred in Woody Allen's Melinda and Melinda and was most recently seen reprising the character of Uncle Arthur in Columbia Pictures' feature adaptation of Bewitched.
Carell currently stars in the American adaptation of the acclaimed British television series The Office, which debuted this past spring on NBC and is slated to continue this fall. Carell's other television credits include co-starring opposite Julia Louis-Dreyfus on the NBC series Watching Ellie and The Dana Carvey Show, which he co-wrote with Carvey.
Carell began his career in acting at the age of six in his first grade Thanksgiving play. After graduating from Denison University in Ohio, he contemplated a career as an attorney and then quickly chose a career as an actor. A veteran of The Second City Theatre group in Chicago, Carell was twice nominated for a Joseph Jefferson award.
Born in Concord, Massachusetts, and raised in nearby Acton, Carell now resides in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Nancy Walls (NBC's Saturday Night Live), whom he met while at Second City and who also frequently appeared on The Daily Show. He is the proud father of a four-year-old daughter and a one-year-old son.
