Steve Carell stars in "The Office" on NBC as Michael Scott. Carell also stars in the movie "Crazy, Stupid, Love." alongside Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Marisa Tomei and Kevin Bacon.

Steve Carell is one of the most sought-after comedic actors in Hollywood. First gaining recognition for his contributions as a correspondent on Comedy Central's Emmy Award-winning "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," Carell has successfully moved into primetime television and above-the-title status in the film world with equal aplomb. Carell's endeavors and successes in acting, writing and producing provided an organic segue to the creation of his own production company, Carousel Productions, with "Crazy, Stupid, Love." marking the first feature film released under that banner.

Carell opened his first lead feature, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," which he co-wrote with director Judd Apatow, at number one, a spot at which it remained for two straight weekends. The surprise hit of 2005 went on to gross more than $175 million worldwide and had number one openings in 12 countries. The success of the film has continued, as it has also generated over $100 million in DVD sales in North America alone. The film was honored with an AFI Award naming it one of the 10 Most Outstanding Motion Pictures of the Year and took home Best Comedy Movie at the 11th Annual Critics' Choice Awards. The film also earned Carell and Apatow a co-nomination for Best Original Screenplay by the Writers Guild of America.

In 2006, as part of an ensemble, he starred in "Little Miss Sunshine," which earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture, with Carell sharing the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. In 2008, Carell starred as Maxwell Smart in "Get Smart," opposite Anne Hathaway and Alan Arkin. The film grossed over $230 million worldwide.

In 2010, Carell starred in the comedy "Dinner for Schmucks" with Paul Rudd, and voiced the lead in the animated comedy "Despicable Me," playing a super villain who finds his plans to steal the moon put on hold when three orphan girls adopt him as their dad. The film went on to phenomenal worldwide success, garnering over $543 million at the box office, and it will yield a sequel in the summer of 2013. Carell also starred with Tina Fey in the romantic comedy "Date Night," which earned over $150 million worldwide.

His previous film credits include "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy," "Bruce Almighty," "Bewitched" and "Dan in Real Life."

Carell recently concluded a seven-season run in the Americanized adaptation of Ricky Gervais' acclaimed British television series "The Office," earning Carell five Emmy Award nominations for Best Actor in a Comedy and one, as a producer, for Best Series. In 2006, Carell earned a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, followed by five more nominations for his work on the series. In 2007 and 2008, the cast shared the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

Carell recently wrapped production on the film "Seeking a Friend for the End of the World," with Keira Knightley, which will be released in early 2012. He will begin production on the drama "Great Hope Springs" in fall 2011, opposite Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones, and follow that up with the comedy "Burt Wonderstone," in which Carell will portray a magician.
