GET SMART

STEVE CARELL (Maxwell Smart/Executive Producer) has emerged as one of the most sought-after comedic actors in Hollywood. First gaining recognition for his contributions as a correspondent on Comedy Central's Emmy Award-winning "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” he has successfully segued into prime-time television and above-the-title status in the film world.

Carell's first feature leading role was in the comedy "The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” which he co-wrote with director Judd Apatow. The surprise hit of 2005, it opened at number one and led the box office for two straight weekends, going on to gross more than $175 million worldwide with #1 openings in twelve countries. To date, the film has generated over $100 million in DVD sales in North America alone. It earned an AFI Award as one of The 10 Most Outstanding Motion Pictures of the Year, took home the Best Comedy Movie honors at the 11th Annual Critics' Choice Awards and earned Carell and Apatow a nomination for Best Original Screenplay by the Writers Guild of America.

Carell currently stars in the Americanized adaptation of the acclaimed British television series "The Office.” In its fourth season, the show continues to flourish in the ratings and has earned Carell an Emmy Award nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy. In 2006, Carell earned a Golden Globe Award® for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series—Musical or Comedy, for his portrayal of Michael Scott, the pompous and deluded boss of a Pennsylvania paper company. He also won a Writers Guild Award for Best Comedy Series in 2007.

In 2006, as part of an ensemble, he starred in the black comedy "Little Miss Sunshine,” which earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture and won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. He also recently starred opposite Juliette Binoche in the romantic comedy "Dan in Real Life,” and in the comedy "Evan Almighty.” Earlier this year, Carell was the voice of the Mayor of Whoville in the Dr. Seuss classic "Horton Hears a Who,” co-starring Jim Carrey.

His previous film credits include "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” "Bruce Almighty” and "Bewitched.”

Born in Massachusetts, Carell now lives in Los Angeles with his wife, actress Nancy Walls (NBC's "Saturday Night Live”), whom he met while at the Second City Theater Group in Chicago, where both were members. He is the proud father of a daughter and a son.
