Creator: Steve Carell

Steven John "Steve" Carell (born August 16, 1962) is an Academy Award-nominated American film and television actor. Originally a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart (and like fellow correspondent Stephen Colbert a Second City veteran), he is perhaps most recognized for portraying the character of Michael Scott on The Office, the American adaptation of the British sitcom (for which he received a Golden Globe Award for best actor in a television comedy series). Since then, he's risen to prominence on the silver screen, his first starring role in a Hollywood production being The 40-Year-Old Virgin, wherein he portrayed the titular character, Andy Stitzer. However, he'd held minor roles before, such as that of Evan Baxter, the Small Name, Big Ego rival to Jim Carrey's Bruce Nolan in Bruce Almighty.

People tend to forget he's a pretty jam-up writer; he co-wrote The 40-Year-Old Virgin and also wrote the Season 2 finale of The Office ("Casino Night"), widely regarded as the best episode of the series.

May or may not actually be the former president of Iran.
