Say goodbye to Michael Scott, because Steve Carell completely transformed himself into a much darker character in the new film “Foxcatcher.” The movie premiered at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival just in time for the first teaser trailer to hit the Internet.
In the movie, Carell plays John du Pont, heir to the du Pont Chemical fortune, and his real-life relationship with Olympic Wrestling Champion brothers Mark and Dave Schultz (Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo), which led to a gruesome murder. The film is due in theaters on Nov. 14, 2014.
The main thing that can be gained from the trailer is that “The Office” alum pulls off one of his best dramatic performances yet. Oscar buzz is already beginning for Carell in this film.
