HOT GALLERY: As Steve Carell Turns 50, Snakkle Looks Back at His life and CareerFrom The Office to Anchorman and beyond, Steve Carell is one funny guy. But more than that—he often plays (and has a reputation for actually being) Mr. Nice Guy. So is he? “I don’t really think I’m that nice,” Carell recently said as a guest on Conan. “I think I’m probably just a sociopath who understands that niceness sells.” Um, sorry—we’re not buying it, Steve. As the actor turns 50, we take a look back at all he’s achieved thus far. We can’t wait to see what comes next! By Nina Hämmerling Smith
Carell grew up in Acton, MA, with three older brothers. He was raised Catholic and attended the private Middlesex School, where he was the goalie on his ice hockey team (check him out showing off his moves on The Dana Carvey Show). Some of his earliest jobs were in the produce department of a supermarket (“I was pretty much bad at every aspect of the job”) and as a telemarketer selling wine (“You say things like ‘oaky’ a lot”).
