Steve Carell to be Raised by Wolfs

In case you haven't heard, Steve Carell is leaving The Office after this year. This would be sad, had The Office continued to be good past season three. I kid, I kid. Well, sort of, while there have been some worthwhile episodes in the last few years, the series is far from the show I used to look forward to each and every week. I blame Jim and Pam. Who thought that three years was long enough to drag that tension out?

Anyway, once Carell leaves, he’ll have more time to be a movie star. His latest, DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS may look like complete shit (in my opinion at least), but he’s already lining up a new project after that. It’s an original comedy pitch called RAISED BY WOLFS from writer Les Firestein, who has written nothing you’ve probably ever seen outside of 53 episodes of In Living Color. The plot is under wraps, but it’s stated that the misspelling in the title is due to the character’s last name, rather than the writer being a moron.

I don’t know, I’m a big fan of Carell’s work on The Office and of course his breakout film role THE 40 YEAR-OLD VIRGIN and his dramatic(ish) turn in LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, but EVAN ALMIGHTY, GET SMART and DATE NIGHT have all failed to impress me, and it doesn’t look like SCHMUCKS will either. He seems to doing well with animated voicing in OVER THE HEDGE, HORTON HEARS A WHO and recently DESPICABLE ME, but how hard is that, really?

But I’m pulling for Steve Carell to succeed, as I’ve been following him since The Daily Show and think he deserves his newfound fame. Hopefully WOLFS will do his talents proud.

Extra Tidbit: I heard DAN IN REAL LIFE was pretty good.

Man, I almost completly forgot about his role in Little Miss Sunshine. I miss seeing that different range from Steve Carrell, he's gotten too comfortable playing morons.

season 4 of The Office was great.. it slowed down pretty bad in season 5 (The Andy/Angela drama was garbage) but last season has been pretty solid so far.. either way, it always makes me laugh. It just wont ever be the same without Michael Scott

Dan in Real Life was a much better movie than Little Miss Sunshine, you should check it out.

Dan In Real Life was a great movie. Carell does well in dramas as much as he does in comedies.

Walk Like a Man

I thought maybe this was a remake of the Howie Mandel vehicle.

Damn. I was hoping for an Encino Man-type deal, just from the title --

A family goes camping and unwittingly discovers a man raised in the wild. After an initial scare, the family takes him in as their own. In the process of learning to adjust to ordinary human life, the man raised by wolves makes friends with the kids and the dogs, enemies with the unfaithful jerk husband, and ultimately wins over the sexy stay-at-home mother by just being his natural, wild self. Credits roll as the

A family goes camping and unwittingly discovers a man raised in the wild. After an initial scare, the family takes him in as their own. In the process of learning to adjust to ordinary human life, the man raised by wolves makes friends with the kids and the dogs, enemies with the unfaithful jerk husband, and ultimately wins over the sexy stay-at-home mother by just being his natural, wild self. Credits roll as the wolf-man invites his (real) wolf parents to stay in the family's new, nature-friendly home. FADE TO BLACK.

It's a story of love, family, and humility, reminding us all that we shouldn't forget our true animal nature and that we shouldn't be afraid to just be a little wild sometimes. HOOWWL!!

But seriously, the first thing that came to mind by reading the title was the Scott Adsit Honda commercial --

Or maybe it's about living under the strict, stone-cold parenting of Dick Wolf.
