Steve Carell commits to something Terrible, Horrible, No Good…

Steve Carell, always a busy guy, has found enough time in his choca-bloc schedule for “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”, based on the kids book of the same name.

Deadline
says “Crazy Stupid Love” and “Burt Wonderstone” star Carell is playing “Ben, Alexander’s dad. The book, one of the more entertaining and humorous of the yarns you read endlessly to your kids at night, concerns young Alexander, who starts a wretched day with the realization that the gum he fell asleep chewing is now hopelessly tangled in his hair, and things get worse from there, to the point he threatens to chuck it all and move to Australia.”
