Steve Carell Channels Siegfried And Roy for ‘Burt Wonderstone’

Steve Carell is channeling his inner Siegfried and Roy for his new role as Burt Wonderstone in the new movie with the same name.

The world got its first glimpse of Carell donning his magician’s wig today and its… fantastic.

Carell plays Burt Wonderstone, a mainstay on the Vegas strip, who has to compete with a new magician in town, played by Jim Carrey. If that isn’t enough to get you excited for “Burt Wonderstone,” the movie also stars Alan Arkin, Olivia Wilde, James Gandolfini, and Steve Buscemi.

Here’s the synopsis from IMDB:

“After breaking up with his longtime stage partner, a famous but jaded Vegas magician fights for relevance when a new, “hip” street magician appears on the scene.”

Here’s another look of Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, and Olivia Wilde in “Burt Wonderstone.”

Carell looks like a natural magician, doesn’t he? It’s probably because he’s played another famous, and terrible, magician… Michael Scott.

“Burt Wonderstone” doesn’t have a release date yet but Cinema Blend reports that if production continues smoothly it may be out by the end of this year.
