Steve Carell to Play Freaky Killer in ‘Foxcatcher’

Posted by & filed under The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).

Steve Carell: funny. Schizophrenic murderers: not funny. So it’s strange that The Office’s legendary Michael Scott will be playing a killer in an upcoming movie.

Bennett Miller, the man behind the smash hit Moneyball, will direct Carell in Foxcatcher, the true story of heir and millionaire John DuPont, who was convicted of killing Olympic wrestler Dave Schultz. Carrell will play DuPont, and will have to go to some pretty dark places in order to embody a mentally ill murderer. Then again, we’ve seen Steve Carrell play a disturbed person before – in Little Miss Sunshine, he was a suicidal college professor.

Foxcatcher will reportedly begin shooting in March of 2012.
