STEVE CARELL (BRICK TAMLAND) has emerged as one of the most sought-after 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," Carell has successfully segued from the TV world to above-the-title status in the film world with equal aplomb.

In July, Carell returned as the voice of "Gru" in the animated film "Despicable Me 2" which has grossed over $668 million worldwide and is Universal Pictures most profitable film, ever.
