In advance of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone’s debut, Steve Carell brings his magic to ESPN’s offices

Actor and comedian Steve Carell stopped by ESPN on Thursday for a Car Wash in promotion of his new movie The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, opening today nationwide.

Carell’s crowded schedule on the Bristol, Conn. campus included stopping by SportsCenter, where he channeled his inner Brick Tamland (from Anchorman) as he commented on “Top Plays” with anchors Sarah Walsh and Kevin Negandhi. He also broke “fake” news that, according to his “sources,” ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter has been sending out bogus Tweets.

In the Front Row video above, Carell talks about his ESPN visit, his sportscaster catchphrase (think Dick Vitale’s “That’s awesome, baby!”) and his ideal SportsCenter co-host.
