THE BRILLIANCE OF STEVE CARELL AS MICHAEL SCOTT: ANOTHER CELEBRITY CRITIQUE IN A BLOG I PROMISE WON’T JUST BE CELEBRITY REVIEWS.
Over the passed week and a half or so I have been watching NBC’s The Office, a show I love. As a massive fan of the BBC’s The Office created by perhaps my favorite comedy duo of Ricky Gervais and Steven Merchant (sorry Dorothy and Sophia), I was hesitant with an American remake. Yet, as the show progressed from its sluggish, lackluster first season, I became to the love The Office’s as seperate children. Over the years NBC’s The Office has become show for me, if I were having a bad day I would turn it on and within minutes feel much better, large in part to Steve Carell.
That being said I just have recently realized The Brilliance of Steve Carell as Michael Scott (Hey, look thats in the title, don’t you just love it when someone says the title of the movie or book your reading in a sentence within that movie or book). Steve’s portrayal has created perhaps the most tragically endearing, comically inept, ever hopeful, childish characters of all time. Carell is both a master of the subtly and over the top nature of Michael Gary Scott.
As a student of comedy, I am constantly learning to be a better actor/improviser by watching Carell at work And as all good things must come to an end, Steve Carell will be leaving The Office at the end of the season. Last year it was LOST, this year The Office, if Mick and Molly are cancelled in May 2012, I will be devisated.
The following blog was completely green (take that to mean what you want)!
P.S. I won’t do a celebrity review next time……
