With Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" entering the Oscar fray it's time for Sony Pictures Classics to start hustling the picture, but it seems that not everyone in their starry cast — which includes Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Sienna Miller — will be immediately recognizable. Yes, that's Steve Carell, and he's got a new prosthetic nose.

With Bennett Miller's "Foxcatcher" entering the Oscar fray it's time for Sony Pictures Classics to start hustling the picture, but it seems that not everyone in their starry cast — which includes Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo and Sienna Miller — will be immediately recognizable. Yes, that's Steve Carell, and he's got a new prosthetic nose.

“We just had our first test [screening], and not everybody recognized Steve. He is aged [for the film], and his face is changed, and his physicality changed,” Miller told EW. “If I say I’m going to make a movie about a guy who’s a schizophrenic murderer, there are probably a dozen actors who would immediately appear on anybody’s casting list. And Steve would not be on any of those lists. And that’s a good thing. Because it’s unexpected…"

In case you're still not up to speed, Carell is playing John du Pont, in the bizarre true story of a multimillionaire and paranoid schizophrenic who built a wrestling training facility, Team Foxcatcher, on his 800-acre Pennsylvania estate. In 1996, he shockingly murdered Olympic gold medal-winning wrestler David Schultz (Ruffalo), a longtime friend, who du Pont believed was part of an international conspiracy to kill him. Again, it sounds like a helluva tale and we're eager to see this one.

Meanwhile, from killers to heroes...here's a new look at Idris Elba in some pretty unintentionally funny old age makeup in "Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom." Hopefully this is just one errant shot, and that everything works once you're watching the film. It sort of reminds us a bit of Anthony Hopkins last year in "Hitchcock," who looked a bit jarring in stills, but worked just fine in the movie (even if it was disappointing).

"Foxcatcher" lands on December 20th, with 'Mandela' opening on November 29th. Updated: "Foxcatcher" will make its world premiere at the AFI Fest in November.
