Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling start to build some crazy buzz [trailer]
Nearly four months out, and the buzz is already growing for "Crazy, Stupid, Love," the Steve Carell-Julianne Moore dramedy about a marriage falling apart and a man reborn.
From the new trailer, viewable below, the Dan Fogelman-penned movie could veer a little uncertainly between comedy and drama. But a large number of the scenes look promising -- especially with Ryan Gosling playing some kind of amped-up version of his own public persona as a bro/lady killer. Carell also manages to mix in the right amount of Michael Scott and "Dan in Real Life" (if it's a hint at what Carell can do with all the time on his hands, this post-"Office" time may be a good one indeed), while younger actors like Emma Stone look like they're actually given something to do.
Most encouraging, it looks like a return to form for "Bad Santa" writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who direct here, after a couple of misses.
