Tonight Show performance
Carell sings Sexual Healing with Jimmy Fallon’s quartet, The Ragtime Gals, on the Tonight Show. Fallon’s announcer Steve Higgins:
Ladies and gentlemen, for the first time ever, combining the harmony of a barbershop quartet with Marvin Gaye music, please welcome, The Ragtime Gals.
In this drama, directed by Bennett Miller, Carell plays John du Pont, the schizophrenic millionaire who infamously shot and killed his friend and Olympic gold-medal wrestler Dave Schultz before locking himself in his mansion as police officers negotiated his surrender for two days. Co-starring Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo.
I thought about who he was as a little kid, the environment he grew up in. He was very sheltered. He essentially grew up in this enormous estate with his mother, who by all accounts was not the most warm person … At his core, he was a very lonely person.
Steve Carell interview
Carell and Fallon discuss choosing the next big hits on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
I have so much credit with her now.
Carell talks about his role in the movie The Incredible Burt Wonderstone:
If you happen to have a foam ball on you, I can make it disappear. The character is basically a kid who finds magic as an outlet that makes him cool, and then he starts to think a bit too highly of himself.
Steve Carell interview
Seacrest interviews Carell during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his film Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.
It’s a little weird shooting something like that because no matter what you’re doing in the movie as that character, there’s that looming thing hanging over you of like, ‘Wow, this could all be over.’ You know what though? When you think about it, it’s sort of just a metaphor for life. We’re all going through it and there’s an end date for all of us. It’s kind of how you choose to live your life, so there’s really sort of a joyousness to it, I think, as well.
Carell is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy at the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Michael Scott on The Office.
