Steve Carell got really upset when Michael Scott burned his foot in a George Foreman grill on an episode of The Office.
But that's nothing compared to how dark the actor is planning to go for his next role.
Carell will play the lead in Foxcatcher, which tells the story of millionaire Jon du Pont, the man who murdered Olympic wrestler Dave Shulz and someone believed to suffer from paranoid schizophrenia. The drama will be directed by Bennett Miller (Moneyball).
The role, of course, is quite the departure from the lighter fare on Carell's resume. He was mostly recently seen opposite Emma Stone, Julianne Moore and Ryan Gosling and we encourage readers to visit our Crazy, Stupid Love quotes section to be reminded of that great movie.
