Steve Carell Comes to Santa Barbara

Actor Steve Carell is being honored with the 2015 Outstanding Performer of the Year Award at the 30th Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

The tribute will celebrate Carell’s performance in Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher.” The announcement came from SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling.

“He’s made us laugh for so many years with his great comedic abilities, but he shows this year that his range and artistry runs deep with his career-changing performance in Foxcatcher,” Said Durling . “He is unrecognizable physically and emotionally.”

Carell will join an illustrious group of past recipients of the award that include: Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence, Viola Davis, James Franco, Angelina Jolie, and Heath Ledger among other Hollywood heavy-hitters.

The Outstanding Performer of the Year Award will be presented at the historic Arlington Theater on Friday, February 6, 2015.
