Steve Carell to Play a Rock Star’s Love Child

Movie News

Although Steve Carell is set to depart "The Office" after this season, it hardly means he won't be working. In fact, he is doing the exact opposite, attaching himself to a litany of projects, including a new one set to be penned by Dan Fogelman.

Carell already has worked with Fogelman on his upcoming film "Crazy, Stupid, Love," and according to Vulture, the two will team up again for the Warner Bros. comedy titled "Imagine."

Fogelman (the writer of Pixar’s "Cars" and Disney’s "Bolt") is set to make his directing debut on the film, in which a 60-something Bruce Springsteen-type rocker discovers a long-unopened letter addressed to him from John Lennon.  After reading it, he’s shocked to learn that he actually fathered a son, who will be played by Carell.

In my eyes, Michael Scott---I mean Steve Carell--- can do no wrong. He is a bonafide comedy star and this film could potentially be hilarious, especially with the interaction between Carell and his rock star father.

No dates have yet been set for the film, but once production on "The Office" comes to a close for the season, Carell will have all the time in the world to get the ball rolling.
