'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' Photos with Steve Carell; Trailer Debuts on Friday

Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi, Jay Mohr, and Alan Arkin are also featured in these new shots from the upcoming comedy directed by Don Scardino.
Back in January, a number of set photos debuted from The Incredible Burt Wonderstone featuring Olivia Wilde and Jim Carrey. Today, New Line Cinema has debuted two official photos, offering our first look at Burt Wonderstone himself, played by Steve Carell, before the first trailer debuts Friday, December 21. These shots also feature Jim Carrey as Burt's nemesis Steve Gray, a rival Las Vegas magician who has stolen the title character's thunder. We also get a look at supporting players Steve Buscemi as Burt's magical partner Anton, Jay Mohr as Rick the Implausible, Alan Arkin as Rance Holloway, and Michael Herbig as Lucius Belvidere. Say what you will about magicians, but they sure do have cool names. Take a look at these photos, then read on to see what the cast and director Don Scardino had to say about this comedy.

As you can see in these photos, these magicians hairstyles are just as colorful as their names. Steve Carell revealed this is the first time he has ever had a mullet.

"This is a first, even in real life. I never achieved mullet-ness in all of my years. It's pretty fantastic, isn't it? There is actually a multitude of scintillating looks that I rock in this movie. From the mullet to the lion's mane to a frosted coif."


The actor also spoke about Burt Wonderstone's rivalry with Jim Carrey's Steve Gray, the street magician who detracts from Burt and Anton.

"He's the very edgy magician who begins to pull the attention from Burt and Anton. He's my nemesis."


He also teased that the comedy features a stunt that required himself and Steve Buscemi to be trapped in a glass box, elevated high above the Vegas strip.

"Filming that was more unnerving than I expected. The scariest part was that you could look straight down below you. (Buscemi) was at least as scared as I was. But we had fun."


Director Don Scardino also teased another stunt, described as a "hangman body switch," designed by the film's consultant, David Copperfield.

"It's a great trick, very impressive. Copperfield took note of the hair changes and said, 'I know them all, I went through the same ones.'"

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone was released March 15th, 2013 and stars Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Olivia Wilde, Jim Carrey, James Gandolfini, Alan Arkin, Jay Mohr, Michael Herbig. The film is directed by Don Scardino.
