Get Smart

2008 – Steve Carrel was in studio in 2013, and he talked about writing the 40-Year-Old Virgin movie with Judd Apetow.  The idea was from a character from an improv sketch.   He said Judd Apetow had to give him the lecture to get on with it and keep writing this movie, because he would have dropped the ball.  He says owes Judd and Jon Stewart his entire career.  Because of the success of this movie, he didn’t have to audition for Maxwell Smart in Get Smart.  He went to Warner Brothers expecting to audition, and they said they wanted him for the part and were asking him who he wanted as a director, ect.

When JD was in high school, he played the lead role of Maxwell Smart in a play based on the TV series.
