Steve Carell, one of American comedy's most popular faces who edited a school newspaper as a child, is now celebrated as the funniest man on the cover of Life Magazine and on NBC's SNL, where he hosted the 2005-2006 season premiere. He became an unusually versatile comic after more than two decades of improv skits and bit parts, and received the 2006 Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in Television Comedy for the leading role of Michael Scott in his remake of Britain's existential comedy The Office (2005).

He was born Steven John Carell on August 16, 1962, into an Italian-American family in Concord, Massachusetts, USA. He was educated at The Fenn School, an all boys private school in Concord, Massachusetts, then at Middlesex School in Concord. He studied and graduated from Denison University in Granville, Ohio, then took acting at Chicago's Second City troupe. Carell made his film debut in 1991, as Tesio in Curly Sue (1991). From 1990-1996 he taught improvisational comedy class and also performed with The Second City troupe in Chicago. During the 1990s he was writing for The Dana Carvey Show, then he had a stint as one of correspondents on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Carell shot to fame after his breakout performances as Evan Baxter opposite 'Jim Carrey' in Bruce Almighty (2003) and as Uncle Arthur opposite 'Nicole Kidman' and 'Will Ferrell' in Bewitched (2005). He co-wrote the original screenplay for the summer box-office hit The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005) which was chosen as one of the Top Ten movies of 2006 by the American Film Institute. At the same time he appeared in Little Miss Sunshine (2006), an independent dark comedy that gives an unusually sharp and sarcastic view on America. In 2007 Carell reprized his role as Evan Baxer, filling Jim Carrey's leading-man shoes as a politician asked by God to build a giant ark in Evan Almighty (2007), the second installment of the Almighty franchise, co-starring Lauren Graham and 'Morgan Freeman'. In 2008 he re-united with 'Jim Carrey' in highly successful animation hit Horton Hears a Who! (2008), then appeared as Agent Maxwell Smart in popular comedy Get Smart (2008).

Carell has been enjoying a happy family life with his wife, actress 'Nancy Carell', whom he met when she was a student in an improv class he was teaching at The Second City comedy troupe in Chicago. The couple have two children, daughter Elisabeth (born May 2001), and son John (born June 2004). Carell is living with his family in Los Angeles, California.

  • Of Italian descent. His father, Edwin Caroselli, changed his name to Carell before Steven was born.
  • He was nominated for a 1993 Joseph Jefferson Award for Actor in a Revue for "Truth, Justice, or the American Way" at the Second City Theatre in Chicago, Illinois.
  • One of 115 people invited to join AMPAS in 2007.
  • Daughter Elisabeth Anne born in May 2001.
  • Orignally wanted to be a lawyer, but he reached a question on an application form that said, "Why do you want to be a lawyer?" He couldn't think of anything.
  • Grew up in Newton, Massachusetts.
  • He auditioned to be on the British version of Whose Line is it Anyway. Mike Myers also auditioned for it but both were unsuccessful.
  • Was offered a role in _Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (2006)_ (qv) with 'Will Ferrell' (qv) but couldn't accept due to scheduling conflicts.
