Steve Carell always seems to have the right mix of comedy and drama recently. Not too serious but not too sappy.

Well it seems he found himself another movie where he'll get to make us laugh/cry.

Dogs Of Babel his newest film, is based off of a Carolyn Parkhurst novel.

Parkhurst's website has an official book synopsis:

"When his wife dies in a fall from a tree in their backyard, linguist Paul Iverson is wild with despair. In the days that follow, Paul becomes certain that Lexy's death was no accident. Strange clues have been left behind: unique, personal messages that only she could have left and that he is determined to decipher.

So begins Paul's fantastic and perilous search for the truth, as he abandons his every-day life to embark on a series of experiments designed to teach his dog Lorelei to communicate.

Is this the project of a madman? Or does Lorelei really have something to tell him about the last afternoon of a woman he only thought he knew? At the same time, Paul obsessively recalls the early days of his love for Lexy and the ups and downs of life with the brilliant, sometimes unsettling woman who became his wife."

So basically, it will be Steve Carell teaching a dog how to talk.

We'd sit down and watch that for two hours.

PETA Letter's To Comedy A-listers

PETA Letter's To Comedy A-listers

Someone's in trouble…

H-wood funnymen Kevin James, Adam Sandler, Steve Carell, and Jim Carrey were sent some strong worded letters from PETA today.

The letters, which PETA released to the Track, read:

“We’re absolutely sure that until this moment, you could not have been aware of the abuse and suffering that captive wild animals used in the entertainment industry endure behind the scenes, and we feel that it is important to provide you with this information.”

James and Sandler were specifically targeted in the protest, due to the recent release of their flick The Zookeeper.

Back in 2009, the death of Tweet, a giraffe who collapsed and died on the Franklin Park set of the film, sparked a federal investigation. Tweet’s scenes in Zookeeper were filmed at the local zoo, though he wasn’t a resident. He was transported from California’s Animals in Motion for the shoot.

Activists made their presence known outside the Zookeeper premiere last week in El Lay.

PETA staged an elaborate protest, featuring signs that read “Cruelty Has No Place In Show Business.”

Steve Carell And Keria Knightley On Set With A Puppy

Steve Carell and Keira Knightley filming  "Seeking a Friend For the End of the World"

Double Pout!

Steve Carell, Keira Knightley and a confused puppy were spotted filming their new film Seeking a Friend For the End of the World in LA yesterday.

In the movie Steve plays a man whose wife leaves him after the world has to deal with the inevitable, and soon, collision of a huge asteroid with the planet. He sets out on a road trip to find a high school sweetheart, with his dog and his neighbor (Keira) accompanying him.

We would say this movie sounds like it could be funny or cute or something like that, BUT we're still mad at Steve for leaving The Office. So never mind!

Check out more pics from the set below!

Steve Carell To Star In Doggie Comedy Drama

Filed under: Film FlickersDog

Steve for Dog drama

Itching for an Oscar?

Steve Carell has signed on to star in the drama Dogs of Babel.

Here’s the plot synopsis per the press release:

The story follows Paul Iverson, a linguistics professor, who returns home one day to find his wife dead in their backyard. Police rule her death an accident, but Paul is not quite sure. The only witness to her death is their dog Lorelei. In Paul’s grief-stricken search for answers, he endeavors to teach Lorelei to talk in the hopes that he can uncover what happened the day his wife died.

While Carell has done films with dramatic elements in Little Miss Sunshine and Dan in Real Life, this sounds like a big departure for him.

This movie sounds like a winner.

We hope Steve is ready to make the Jim Carry leap!
