Steve Carell -- who played one of the most beloved characters on TV -- is best known for playing Michael Scott in the American version of The Office. Taking time to work on other projects during hiatus periods, Carell later left the series after Season 7 to pursue more film opportunities. Some of his biggest projects include the Despicable Me franchise, Crazy, Stupid, Love and Date Night. Up next, Carell will be reprising his role as Brick Tamland in the Anchorman sequel.
