Is Steve Carell's beaver named Mr. Hat?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Office‘s Steve Carell is attached to The Beaver, “a script fromfirst-time writer Kyle Killen about a man who walks around with abeaver puppet on his hand, treating it as something close to ahuman creature with human feelings.” The film is currently shopping for a director, and we’d like to suggest South Park‘s Trey Parker for three reasons: (1) Reading the movie’s synopsis made us think of Mr. Hat, Mr. Garrison’s hand puppet (pictured). (2) After Team America: World Police, we’re confident Parker could make us feel for felt. (3) We think he would enjoy having “The Beaver” on his résumé.
Is Parker your pick?
