The Forty Year Old Virgin Steve Carell
The quirky sidekick of John Stewarts Daily Show, Steve Carell, is staring as a most ineligible bachelor, or at least has been for his whole life thus far, in The Forty Year Old Virgin.

Correll is a Virgin

This film is expecting a lot of laughs, on the premise of a coming-of-age story of a group of friends rallying around to get their friend Andy (Carell) laid at all costs. To me this seems that it may be one of those films that everybody talks about for two days and next thing you know it is out for rental. Nonetheless it has the support of a major studio, Universal pictures, and Jude Apatow (Anchorman) is directing.

The 40 Year Old Virgin is scheduled for an August 19 release, so there is still plenty of time for Universal to release more info on this odd-ball comedy.

This film is also staring Catherine Keener, Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Romany Malco, Elizabeth Banks, Leslie Mann and Jane Lynch.

Here is a synopsis for The Forty Year Old Virgin:

40-year-old Andy Stitzer (Steve Carell) has done quite a few things in his life. He's got a cushy job stamping invoices at an electronics superstore, a nice apartment with a proud collection of action figures and comic books, good friends, a nice attitude. But there's just one little thing he hasn't quite gotten around to doing yet--something most people have done by his age. Done a lot. Andy's never, ever, ever had sex--not even by accident. So is that such a big deal?

Well, for Andy's buds at the store, it sure is. Although they think he's a bit of an oddball, there's certainly a planetful of stranger (and homelier) guys who've at least had one go at having a go. They consider it their duty to help Andy out of his dire situation and go to great lengths to help him. But nothing proves effective enough to lure their friend out of lifelong chastity until he meets Trish (Catherine Keener), a 40-year-old mother of three. Andy's friends are psyched by the possibility that "it" may finally happen...until they hear that Andy and Trish have begun their relationship based on a mutual no-sex policy.
