Steve Carell: The Tao of Steve

Susie over at the LiveJournal Office community has posted scans of a Premiere Magazine article entitled “The Tao of Steve.”

It includes a funny quote from Rainn Wilson:

“Maybe many years from now they’ll discover Steve has a room in his house where he’s bitten the heads off of dolls,” jokes Rainn Wilson, Carell’s costar on The Office. “They’ll find, like, eight thousand dolls with their heads chewed off. But that would be it. There wouldn’t be any drugs, he never cheated on his wife, no alcohol in the equation — just one really weird thing that is ultimately discovered about Steve Carell.”

Check out the full article (and a skin-crawling bee picture!) here.

Steve Carell: Mr. Multi-talented has a funny interview with Steve Carell, who talks, among other things, about his stint as Hammy the squirrel in the animated film, Over The Hedge:

One of Hammy’s special talents is his ability to burp the entire alphabet, and it’s a trait Carell is rather proud of.

“It took me many tries, but it’s a talent. I never thought when I learned to do that at age 13 it would pay off with a major motion picture. I should list it on my resume. I can burp and I own my own tux and I can drive a stick shift. I can do it all. Multi-talented.”

The article also includes Steve’s insight into his hilarious Golden Globe acceptance speech.

Jenna Fischer on Celebrity Poker Showdown

A reminder that Jenna plays on Celebrity Poker Showdown later today, June 21st. Check your local listings.

This is Tournament 8, Game 4, and includes Mario Cantone, Rocco DiSpirito, Keegan-Michael Key, and Jordan Peele.

In the Philadelphia Daily News, Jenna provides details on one particular hand:

Fischer, who went out in second place, said: “In one key hand when we were three-handed, I had Ac-Kc and raised it up before the flop, making it $1,200 to go from the small blind against Cantone, who was in the big blind with 3-3. The flop came down Qd-Jc-7h, and I moved all-in. I was pretty happy about the way I played that hand.”
