Steve Carell
'The Big Short' film premiere, New York, America - 23 Nov 2015

While still probably best known for his time on the hit comedy, The Office; Steve Carell is quite the proficient actor who has been showing us over the past few years that he is not just a funny guy. His latest movie, Beautiful Boy; has been receiving a lot of praise and could be a huge contender for this year’s awards season.

Carell will also be brought on for an untitled series on Apple, which will center around the men and women who help Americans wake up in the morning during their daily televised ritual. No, this is not Anchorman, but the actor will be playing Mitch Kessler, who is a morning show anchor, struggling to remain relevant in the ever-changing media world.

The untitled series is written by Kerry Ehrin, which is based on an original idea by Media Res’ Michael Ellenberg and will be directed by Mimi Leder. Carell will be joined by Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.
