Radio interview this week, promoting Carell’s new comedy Date
Night, the comedian, 47, revealed that his contract with the NBC
sitcom only runs through season seven and it looks unlikely that he’ll

basking in retirement when he bids “Happy Trails” to The Office
— Carell reportedly has 10 comedy movie projects in the works.
