After the raging success of ‘The 40 Year-Old Virgin’, Steve Carell’s career is really bubbling. His next paycheck will come from Disney, as he’s hopped on board their romantic comedy ‘Dan in Real Life’.
Reuters reports that the film casts Carell as widowed father with three daughters, who meets a woman while on vacation at the Jersey shore. The catch is that on returning home, he finds out that she’s dating his brother. Rather than hitting the singles bars and moving on to someone else, he hangs around trying desperately not to fall in love with her.
The Peter Hedges directed ‘Dan’ is just one of many movies on Steve Carell’s plate in the next couple years. He’s already slated to appear in the kiddy beauty pageant comedy ‘Little Miss Sunshine’, do voiceover work for the animated film ‘Over the Hedge’, he’ll build an ark for God in the sequel to ‘Bruce Almighty’, play bumbling TV secret agent Max Smart in ‘Get Smart’, and then in 2007 Steve gets hormone replacement therapy in the comedy ‘High T’. You can also see him on television in the second season of NBC’s ‘The Office”… the guy really needs to get a life.
