Actor Steve Carell is eager to shed his good guy image to play a James Bond villain.
The funnyman is famous for his comedic roles in movies such as "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," "Date Night" and "Crazy, Stupid, Love," but he wants fans to see him in a new light.
Carell tells Britain's The Sun, "My dream is to be a Bond villain. Everyone wants to be in a Bond film. There's an interesting way that people depict Bond villains; that they're charismatic and almost likeable, almost redeemable and human. Not a caricature or a villain, but a human being who does bad things. I think it's most actors' dream to play a Bond villain."
I am not sure that I could see him as a villian. I am also not sure that the Bond franchise would take a chance on him or give him that chance. He will have a hard time getting the chance since he has been type cast. I did see him blow up during an interview once because they asked him to pretend to be someone when he wasn't prepared, so I know he has a nasty side, so maybe he could play a baddie--who knows.
