Steve Carell In Boston Last Night

6/20/2008 10:27:00 AM
Despite all the newspapers and news websites I read each day, I figure I still miss about 90% of what's going on in Boston. Apparently, Steve Carell was in town last night for a fundraiser and screening of his new movie "Get Smart."

Concord native Steve Carell returned to town last night, hosting a special screening of "Get Smart" at the Citi Performing Arts Center. The event was a fund-raiser for the Zachary Carson Brain Tumor Fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

Any high rollers out there that can shed some light on how you get invited to these events? Although I suppose even if I did get an invitation, I probably wouldn't be able to afford to go.

At a reception before the movie, guests bid to have the actor's "Office" character, Michael Scott, provide the message on their answering machine. And one big spender bid $42,000 to drop by the "Office" set. With ticket prices ranging from $100 to $500, last night's event was a big moneymaker for Carson's cause, raising more than $400,000.

    Get Smart looks okay over all, though Steve Carell seems to be veering more and more toward not so funny slapstick humor
