Why Steve Carell Left The Office

Steve Carell was one of the biggest reasons for the success of The Office on NBC, thanks to his portrayal of the extremely inappropriate but loveable idiot Michael Scott, manager of his branch of the Dunder-Mifflin paper company. That’s why his departure in the seventh season of the series really took a toll on the show’s quality, and it never really recovered until near the end of the final season. It was thought Steve Carell was ready to move on to bigger things, but what if we told you he didn’t want to leave the show at all? Read More »

irresistible trailer

For the past four years, we’ve been desperately missing Jon Stewart‘s voice. The former host of The Daily Show stepped down right before the 2016 elections and we’ve been deprived of Stewart’s acerbic jokes over the current political climate. But Stewart is finally back — though not in front of the camera. Stewart writes and directs the political satire Irresistible, which stars Steve Carell and Rose Byrne as two rival political consultants battling it out in America’s heartland over a race for mayor of a small Wisconsin town. Watch the Irresistible trailer below.

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.)

A lot can change in a lifetime, so said the meme-able tagline for The Irishman this year. But it doesn’t even take a full life to observe a radical change in the trajectory of a life, as shown by the many artists who changed the course of their careers during the 2010s. It’s one thing to stage a comeback when you’re down and out in the public eye – after all, who doesn’t love an underdog story? – and another to successfully execute a 180-degree shift when things are going fairly smoothly.

This list pays tribute to those in the industry who pulled off pivots that caught us off-guard but did their job of redefining an already established star image. You might notice a running theme in this list: it’s disproportionately male, white and straight, unfortunately. This indicates that there is still room for the industry to improve in the 2020s and allow more opportunities for women, people of color and LGBTQ+ artists to spread their wings and avoid becoming pigeonholed into a single identity. But given the breadth of artists reshaping a well-known persona in this decade, they have many great playbooks to run.

space force tv series cast

Vice musical number watch

Adam McKay‘s Vice is a very off-the-wall biopic of Dick Cheney, but there was one moment apparently too wacky to include: a musical number. The number comes early in the film, where Christian Bale‘s Cheney is learning the ins and outs of politics from Steve Carell‘s Donald Rumsfeld. McKay talked about the scene previously, and verified it would be included on the Blu-ray release. Now, as the Blu-ray and digital release approaches, the scene is finally available for all to see. Watch the Vice musical number below.
