Steve Carell could make 'Beaver' speak

Anonymous Content recently picked up "The Beaver," a script from first-time writer Kyle Killen about
a man who walks around with a beaver puppet on his hand, treating it as something close to a human
creature with human feelings. It's a whimsical and winning script, according to those who have seen it.

But the real selling point is the talent attached: Steve Carell, who could play the lead.

The fable, which occupies the fantastical territory somewhere between "Being John Malkovich" and
"Lars and the Real Girl," has a lot of studios interested. No one's able to buy it yet because Anonymous is
seeking a director first. (At one point, there was word that Jay Roach might come on board, though that
seems unlikely.) But expect it to move quickly.

i don't know how to do the cbox thing so I'll just inform people here until someone can post it in a more obvious area. You can vote for Steve for People's choice awards at this site:

He's nominated for funniest male star I think and Get Smart is also nominated
