Carell got a LOT of work in the aughts. His stint as a correspondent on "The Daily Show" was only the beginning. But things really go cooking in 2005 with the one-two punch of the American version of "The Office" premiering on NBC and the summer blockbuster "The 40-Year-Old Virgin." Following up the next year with the indie darling "Little Miss Sunshine" didn't hurt either.
