And for his next Hollywood trick, Steve Carell will magically appear on… Pawn Stars! The former anchor of The Office – and star of the big-screen prestidigitation comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone – returns to the small screen for a segment on History’s popular reality series, EW has learned. He’ll be seen looking around the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop in Las Vegas, drawing the attention of Rick, Old Man, Corey, and Chumlee, and negotiating with Rick over an item that he’s interested in buying.
Carell, who along with his daughter is a Pawn Stars fan, also filmed a promotional tie-in spot for the Vegas-shot Burt Wonderstone that will unspool during Pawn Stars’ March 11 episode: In the integrated ad, Rick needs help assessing the value of a magician costume so he calls in an “expert,” who is revealed to be Carell (see photo).
Burt Wonderstone hits theaters on March 15. Carell’s guest spot on Pawn Stars will air sometime this spring. And the Office series finale airs May 16, for those holding out hope for a secret cameo from a certain someone.
