The American actor is showing the film directed by Adam McKay, which was released in theaters today, Wednesday, December 23. Back on the career of actor, known for his comedic talent, but also adept at dramatic genre.
This is what is called a “five-star cast.” Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt together in a film about the subprime crisis, The Big Short: the case of the century . A dramatic comedy about one of the biggest economic and social disasters in history.
In the film Adam McKay, accustomed to achieving zany comedies (Ricky Bobby: King of the circuit , Step Brothers , The Other Guys ), Christian Bale is Michael Burry, a fund manager gifted, one of the first to have anticipated the crisis from scientific calculations. But it is also totally zany (or rather, simply outsized?), And walks barefoot and in shorts in his office, while being able to reflect on background (very strong) Metallica. As for Ryan Gosling, the narrator of the film, he plays Jared Vennett, an ambitious young man sure of himself, a true “Wolf of Wall Street” proponent of UV and humiliation of his associates, who had also anticipated the collapse . System
In this film which mixes pedagogy, comical and dramatic, there are also a delicious Brad Pitt in financial “repentant”, became fundamentalist farmer (and inevitably bio) as a wise old man; Steve Carell and finally, finally comfortable in the films “band”. Because the latter was also born in the cinema alongside another band of actors, that of the famous “Frat Pack” almost full (Will Ferrell, Paul Rudd, Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn …) in the legendary ( its kind) Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy Adam McKay, already. Steve Carell is then completely lumnieux side of the stuffing …
The actor, who was factor before embarking on his film career , is indeed known primarily for her comedic talents that he first exercised in the improvisational troupe The Second City, where he met his wife, Nancy Meyers. It is found on the shelf after the Daily Show Stephen Colbert, and finally to the movies. First in supporting roles ( Bruce Almighty ) and in the title role of The 40-Year-Old Virgin in Judd Apatow, the Godfather American comedy (and also the producer of Anchorman … ). We remember with affection his role as seller of appliances lonely handicapped by his virginity, and scenes of anthology (see the chest waxing scene advised by her friends losers: Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen and Romany Malco .)

The series, which aired for nine seasons on NBC in the United States, is often referenced. For this role, cult, he won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.
Ten years later, Steve Carell is named for The Big Short: the case of the century Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy alongside Christian Bale.

He played a gay suicidal Proust specialist. And after Max La Menace , The Dinner or Crazy Night , so it radically changes register with foxcatcher to Bennett Miller, selected at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival with the film leaves with a price of staging. Steve Carell was appointed to the Oscar for Best Actor for that role, that of John Du Pont, patron disorder an Olympic wrestling champion (Channing Tatum).
