BEAUTIFUL BOY

STEVE CARELL (David Sheff) is an Academy Award-nominated actor who has established himself as a multitalented force in Hollywood. First gaining recognition for his contributions as a correspondent on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart," Carell has successfully segued from the small screen to above-the-title status on the big screen, both in big-budget films and arthouse indies. For his revelatory performance as John du Pont in Bennett Miller's Foxcatcher, alongside Mark Ruffalo, Channing Tatum and Vanessa Redgrave, Carell received nominations for an Oscar and SAG, BAFTA and Golden Globe awards.

Carell stars in Robert Zemeckis' Welcome to Marwen, which tells the true story of Mark Hogancamp, a victim of a violent assault who constructs a miniature World War II village in his yard to aid his recovery. Based on the 2010 documentary Marwencol, the drama co-stars Leslie Mann, Merritt Weaver and Janelle Monae. Next, Carell co-stars opposite Christian Bale and Amy Adams in Backseat, a biographical drama directed by Adam McKay about former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney. Carell will portray former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Previously, Carell starred opposite Emma Stone in Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris' Battle of the Sexes, receiving a Screen Actors Guild award as well as a Golden Globe nomination, and was part of the directors' acclaimed Little Miss Sunshine ensemble, sharing in a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. The actor also appeared in Richard Linklater's Last Flag Flying, with Bryan Cranston and Laurence Fishburne; Woody Allen's Cafe Society, alongside Blake Lively, Parker Posey and Jesse Eisenberg; Adam McKay's The Big Short, for which he received a Golden Globe nomination; Peter Sollett's Freeheld, opposite Julianne Moore and Ellen Page; Peter Segal's Get Smart, with Anne Hathaway and Alan Arkin; and Glen Ficarra and John Requa's Crazy, Stupid, Love, opposite Julianne Moore, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.

Carell lent his vocal talents to the 2010 animated feature Despicable Me, in the lead role of Gru. The international smash hit led to two highly successful sequels. His other voice work includes Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears a Who! and Over the Hedge.

Carell's first lead role in a feature film came in 2005's The 40-Year-Old Virgin, which he co-wrote with director Judd Apatow. The film became a worldwide box-office sensation and AFI named it one of the 10 Most Outstanding Motion Pictures of the Year. His subsequent film credits include Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Hope Springs, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, The Way, Way Back, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues.

On the small screen Carell completed an eight-year run playing the hilariously pompous boss Michael Scott on the Emmy-nominated NBC comedy "The Office," adapted from Ricky Gervais' acclaimed British series of the same name. Carell was nominated for six Emmys for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy Series and won a Golden Globe. He was also nominated four times for a SAG award and won two as part of the show's ensemble.

In 2016 Carell and his wife Nancy co-created the TBS police comedy series "Angie Tribeca," starring Rashida Jones. Carell serves as executive producer, writer and director on the show.

Born in Massachusetts, Carell now resides in Los Angeles with his wife. He is the proud father of a daughter and a son.
