For this edition of Hot Buzz Time Machine, I'm reliving early Steve Carell. Before he had a Michael Scott alter ego or leading man status in Date Night, he had a smaller but scene-stealing part opposite Jim Carrey in Bruce Almighty as newscaster Evan Baxter. It was my first real introduction to the funny man, and even then I remember thinking, this guy is going to be huge. Who can forget when Bruce manipulates Evan into making a fool of himself on live TV? Screwy teleprompters and fart jokes ensue, and Carell is basically brilliant.
