Steve Carell’s ‘Foxcatcher’ role builds upon his solid dramatic work in 2007’s 'Dan in Real Life' and 2013’s 'The Way Way Back.' But more importantly, it’s a part that’s tailor-made for the comedian, given that it functions as something like the dark flip-side to his trademark funnyman persona.

Even lauded talents star in terrible films, but sometimes—as is the case with these ten thespians—they happen to star in the worst of the bunch during the exact same calendar year that they turned in those Oscar-worthy works. Oops.

As director Bennett Miller said, the whole premise behind 'Foxcatcher' -- that of a disturbed millionaire coaching a team of Olympic wrestling hopefuls at his home without knowing a thing about the sport -- was "funny...until it's not, and then it's not funny at all." Following the film's NYFF debut, a new 'Foxcatcher' trailer premiered online to show off the powerhouse performances from Steve Carell, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo, and provide a full-length look at this early Oscar contender.

"It’s the kind of thing that’s funny until it’s not, and then it’s not funny at all," 'Foxcatcher' director Bennett Miller told reporters at New York Film Festival of his latest film. The man behind 'Capote' and 'Moneyball' tackled the story of John du Pont, the disturbed successor of the du Pont family fortune who became obsessed with two Olympic wrestling brothers and tragically shot one to death on the grounds of his estate. 'Foxcatcher' was pegged early on as a prospective Oscar contender, and the director and cast members Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo, Sienna Miller, Anthony Michael Hall and Vanessa Redgrave went a bit more in-depth on its creation.

Steve Carell is a man of many talents -- just look at his acting range -- but his prodigious gifts are not just limited to his work on the screen. This is a guy who can do everything with style, grace, and humor -- like catching grapes in his mouth on national television and weaving a believable tale about his molting pet salamander Anderson Cooper.

‘Foxcatcher’ – directed by ‘Moneyball’ director Bennett Miller – premiered Monday at the Toronto International Film Festival after a highly successful debut at Cannes earlier this year. It’s the true story of the intricate relationship between two brothers and Olympic wrestlers -- Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) and Mark Schultz (Channing Tatum) – with their wrestling team financier and sort of coach, John du Pont (Carell), of the famed and extremely wealthy du Pont family … a relationship that ends in paranoia and disaster.

Instead of one full-length 'Foxcatcher' trailer (which would traditionally run around 2:30), Sony Classics has been issuing one-minute teasers for the film. We've got another new teaser trailer today, which focuses on Steve Carell's role as John du Pont (you can watch the previous teaser, focusing more on Channing Tatum's character, below). It really is remarkable to see how Carell has not only changed his looks (those teeth, my god, those teeth), but also his cadence. With labored breathing and long pauses, it doesn't sound like Steve Carell at all.

Here's some news we never expect to report today... Warner Bros. is planning a spinoff of their classic Looney Tunes franchise that would be based on Acme Corp. - the company which Wile E. Coyote and others use to buy their anvils, dynamite and earthquake pills - and would Steve Carell. And, before you ask, no, there won't actually be any Looney Tunes characters in the movie. Huh?
