Most comedians, once they're anointed stars, use their newfound fame to sign on to seemingly dozens of projects, reaching a kind of overexposure in speedy time. After the success of "The 40 Year Old Virgin," it seemed as though Steve Carell was heading that way, with the likes of "Evan Almighty" and "Get Smart," roles that could have been filled by any comic star, clogging up his big screen appearances. But to his credit, now that he's freeing up his schedule by departing "The Office" last week, he's taking on more interesting roles -- the excellent-looking comedy "Crazy, Stupid, Love" lands this summer, and he's got more dramatic projects like "Great Hope Springs," opposite Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones, and the oddity "Dogs of Babel" on his slate alongside more straightforward fare like "Burt Wonderstone."
