Steve Carell is a man of many talents. You may know the 56-year-old actor for his unforgettable comedic timing as The Office's Michael Scott and his dramatic roles in films like Beautiful Boy or Welcome to Marwen, but have you heard his vocal chops? During a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, Steve "serenaded" Ellen with a falsetto version of "O Holy Night" and well . . . just give it a listen.
Steve is an old pro when it comes to the Christmas caroling scene. Growing up in Massachusetts, he would carol in the neighbourhood with his older brothers, and as an adult, he and his wife have been confronted by their fair share of holiday singers. When an overenthusiastic party guest stood up to sing a classic carol at a party Steve was attending, it really made an impact. He broke out his own singing skills to give Ellen a full play-by-play, and even taught her how to "scoop" notes.
Ellen was left laughing out loud, but did tell Steve he has a "very pretty" voice. "Only when I scoop it!" he responded. Watch the video above to hear his rendition in all its glory, and also find out why wearing high heels has been his biggest acting challenge to date.
