Steve Carell Continues Descent into Mediocrity
It seems that our particular plan has made its way to Hollywood's high-concept factory, as Steve Carell has signed on to A Boyfriend for My Wife, a remake of the 2008 Argentine comedy Un novio para mi mujer. In it, he will star as a husband who attempts to ... find a boyfriend for his wife. To do so, he hires a legendary Lothario. $47 that the role eventually goes to Russell Brand. $112 says that, in the end, the Carell character ends up falling in love with his wife again. $4,567 says that the movie -- which is being scripted by the man who brought us Snow Dogs -- will blow legendary goat bile.
Steve: You're a nice guy. You're likable. You're incredibly asexual. Please stop making shitty movies. I remember when Dan in Real Life seemed like a bad movie. Now, it's goddamn Shakespeare compared the crap you've been doing lately. You ever think about going back to "The Daily Show," for six months or so, just to hone on your comedic skills, maybe work with some decent material again?
