Over the past few years, Steve Carell has slyly and hilariously stolen scenes and created lasting impressions in a number of film and television comedies: unleashing a torrent of gobbledy-gook jibberish from behind the news desk in BRUCE ALMIGHTY, blinking vacantly and delivering quotable non sequiturs as simple weatherman Brick Tamland in ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY, inheriting the comic legacy of the hit British television series THE OFFICE in the stateside version and branding his trademark mock stoicism on a series of correspondent reports for THE DAILY SHOW with Jon Stewart.
Now, Carell fulfills his comedic promise by stepping into his first lead role as Andy Stitzer, the title character in the uproarious new film THE 40 YEAR-OLD VIRGIN.
Judd Apatow—whose credits include ANCHORMAN: THE LEGEND OF RON BURGUNDY, KICKING & SCREAMING, THE CABLE GUY and the beloved television series FREAKS AND GEEKS—makes his feature film directing debut with THE 40 YEAR-OLD VIRGIN, co-writing the script with Carell. To round out the cast, Apatow has assembled a true ensemble, gathering some of his longtime comedic collaborators, including Paul Rudd (ANCHORMAN, P.S.), Romany Malco (CHURCHILL: THE HOLLYWOOD YEARS, THE TUXEDO) and Seth Rogen (DONNIE DARKO, FREAKS AND GEEKS) as Andy's co-workers, who make it their mission to end his four-decade dry spell. Joining this funnymen boys' club are Elizabeth Banks (SPIDER-MAN 2, SEABISCUIT) as Beth, the up-for-anything bookstore clerk who might just click Andy's personal love odometer from 0 to 1.
Leslie Mann (ORANGE COUNTY, GEORGE OF THE JUNGLE) as the inebriated Nicky, who is a sure thing for Andy...until she has to drive him home; and Catherine Keener (THE INTERPRETER, BEING JOHN MALKOVICH) as Trish, the quirky and affable woman who works across the way and finally sees Andy as more than just an untouched curiosity.
THE 40 YEAR-OLD VIRGIN charts one sweet guy's odyssey from never-done-it to been-there-done-that as he follows disastrous, but well-meaning advice, endures oh-so-close escapades and almost gives up in search of the one chance that will satisfy his long-delayed gratification.
