Steve Carell

Steve Carell stars as Michael Scott, the pompous and deluded boss in NBC’s half-hour comedy series “The Office.”

Carell is perhaps best known for his frequent contributions as a correspondent on “The Daily Show” and his breakout performances in the feature films “Bruce Almighty” (starring Jim Carrey) and “Anchor Man: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” (starring Will Ferrell). He recently wrapped production on “Bewitched” playing practical jokester Uncle Arthur alongside co-stars Nicole Kidman and Will Ferrell, and is currently filming “The 40 Year Old Virgin” for Universal (which was co-written by Carell and director Judd Apatow).

Carell is concurrently voicing the character of “Hammy” in DreamWorks animated feature film “Over the Hedge,” and is next set to star in the upcoming film version of “Get Smart” in the title role of Maxwell Smart.

Carell portrayed Ellie’s passive/aggressive ex-boyfriend Edgar on NBC’s “Watching Ellie” and was also a series regular in “Over the Top” with Tim Curry and Annie Potts. He also was a writer and performer on “The Dana Carvey Show.” His additional feature- film credits include “Curly Sue” and “Sleepover.”

Born in Concord, Massachusetts, Carell currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife and their two children. His birthday is August 16.
