Last week we rolled out some of our interview with Steve Carell, the star of this weekend's upcoming magician comedy, "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone." Carell spoke to us about getting the band back together for "Anchorman 2" and his somewhat surprising dramatic turn as an eccentric millionaire schizophrenic for Bennett Miller's dark drama "Foxcatcher" coming later this year.

"Burt Wonderstone" is one of those projects that flies just enough below the radar that we never really paid much attention to it. Yes, it was a very hot script (by John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein) but in the past few months the project has amassed an outrageously wonderful cast, which now includes Steve Carell (as the title character), Olivia Wilde, Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi, Alan Arkin and James Gandolfini. And now this tale of dueling Las Vegas magicians has, according to the Hollywood Reporter, just added another name to its stellar cast: Emmy-winning actor (and Pixar mainstay) Brad Garrett.

Well, the tears have been shed and are now dry as Steve Carell officially exited "The Office" just a few weeks ago leaving the door open for a new boss to step in (this writer hopes the scene-stealing James Spader will do it but it will never happen -- but watch this, it's amazing). The actor is wasting too much time mourning his stint on the show as he's already moving full steam ahead on a number of projects. He's currently shooting "Seeking A Friend At The End Of The World" with Keira Knightley and later this summer he'll go toe-to-toe with Meryl Streep in "Great Hope Springs." But one project in particular has been in the works for a while now, with Carell keeping it near the top of his every growing list of options for his next movies.
