Steve Carell to show off his singing pipes in 'Of All the Things'

Now Steve Carell is about to add singer-songwriter to his onscreen menagerie of characters. According to Variety, The Office star has signed on to produce and star in Warner Bros.’ feature film adaptation of the 2008 music documentary Of All the Things – the unusual and unlikely story of Dennis Lambert. In the ’70s and ’80s, Lambert achieved a sort of semi-fame in music circles as the man behind such FM radio staples as “Baby Come Back”, “Rhinestone Cowboy”, and “Ain’t No Woman Like the One I Got”. After his moment in the sun was over, Lambert moved to Florida to sell real estate, only then realizing that he was still huge in the Philippines, where he then went on tour. The Lambert documentary was shown at the South by Southwest Film Festival and AFI Fest and won the audience award at the Nantucket Film Fest in 2008. It was directed by Lambert’s son, Jody. The new script will be written by Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, who recently penned another Carell flick, Burt Wonderstone.

While we can’t vouch for Carell’s singing ability, we do know this: the man can certainly lip sync some C+C Music Factory…
