Steve Carrell is ‘Get Smart’

September 30, 2007

Growing up, one of my favorite shows had to be Get Smart starring Don Adams. The silly exploits of the hapless spy from CONTROL tickled my funny bone like nothing else. Turns out that Get Smart is the latest television property to be turned into a big screen feature, this time starring the hilarious star of The Office, Steve Carrell. The trailer looks funny enough, but I suspect they are saving the best bits for the actual release. I can only imagine Carrell’s riotous take on my favorite Smart gag, the Cones of Silence. I refuse to get my hopes up too high however, thanks to film disasters like The Dukes of Hazzard, Bewitched and Starsky & Hutch. I pray that Carrell will pull if off, if for nothing else but to save us from all of the reviews that will no doubt start with “Missed it by THAT much!” if he fails. I guess we’ll find out this summer.

    Hey Ged,
    Funny to see you guys at lunch. I also loved this show as a kid and followed it when it went to afterschool reruns later. I think Steve Carrell was made for theis park.

    Mark,

    Good to see you too! I have to say that Country BBQ here in Greensboro is pretty darned good. We used to eat at Bo-Hogs until they closed it down. I’m sure we’ll run into each other again eventually. Thanks for visiting too!
