Steve Carell: 'I'm Always Surprised That I'm Working'

Steve CarellSteve Carell never plans his next career move - because he still can't believe he is a successful actor.

The 47 year old made his name with parts in Bruce Almighty and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, before landing the top role as annoying boss Michael Scott in the U.S. version of hit Brit show The Office.

And Carell, who stars in new comedy Date Night with Tina Fey, is still stunned he is leading movies.

He tells the Associated Press, "It doesn't sound sincere but it is: I'm always surprised that I'm working, that I have a job doing what we're doing. Tina felt the same way the first few days of shooting. So, no, I tend not to plan ahead."
 
"Five years ago, I could have never imagined any of this happening. I try to just enjoy it."
