Steve Carell As Burt Wonderstone: Magician Makeup For Former 'Office Star' (PHOTO)

Through the magic of makeup, Steve Carell has been rendered unrecognizable.

The former "Office" boss has turned his attention full time to the big screen; he starred this summer in "Crazy, Stupid, Love." and one of his next big post-sitcom flicks is the comedy "Burt Wonderstone." Carell, in the title role, plays a traditional Las Vegas magician who gets overshadowed by an edgy new performer, played by Jim Carrey. Plunged into an existential crisis, he must find a new approach and rediscover his love of magic before his act goes poof forever.

The cast also includes Olivia Wilde, Steve Buscemi, James Gandolfini and Carell's "Little Miss Sunshine" co-star Alan Arkin.

Carell's next movie is "Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World," a dark apocalyptical romantic comedy co-starring Keira Knightley, Connie Britton, Adam Brody and Patton Oswalt.
