Steve Carell is adding another film to his growing slate of upcoming projects: the actor is in talks for Burt Wonderstone, a comedy set in the world of Las Vegas magicians. Carell will play part of a two-man team whose other half dies during a stunt gone wrong. After the tragedy, he must learn to keep going by rediscovering his love for magic.
This almost sounds like a sick twist on the Siegfried and Roy accident, but I'm going to trust that if Carell is eyeing the script, it must be funnier than it sounds. At least we know that Carell has already been practicing his magic tricks on the set of The Office.
