Steve Carell says he's game for a 'Daily Show' reunion. Let's make this happen immediately!

It was a touching homecoming on last night’s episode of The Daily Show when former correspondent Steve Carell stopped by to promote his latest flick, the wonderful Crazy, Stupid, Love (much to Jon Stewart’s mock disappointment that Carell’s co-star Ryan Gosling couldn’t come by instead.)

Not only did it reunite Carell with his Papa Bear (“I miss you so much,” the actor/nicest-guy-on-the-face-of-the-Earth told the host) but there was something of a mini-Daily Show get-together as fellow alums Vance DeGeneres, Nancy Walls (Carell’s wife) and the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders (who knew?) were also in tow. When Stewart told Carell — who likened visiting The Daily Show to “coming home” — they’ve been thinking of having a full-on Daily Show reunion to get the old gang back together, the star immediately replied, “I think that’s a great idea, I would love to.” In fact, Carell says he’d be up for doing anything, including a field piece. Check out Stewart’s intimate idea at the 4:10 mark of the full clip below, in which the two old pals also reminisce about Daily Show departure parties and Carell getting “fired” from The Office.

I don’t know about you, but this is one of the most exciting things I’ve heard in a while. Not only would it be awesome to see great alums like Ed Helms, Rob Corddry and Mo Rocca — as Stewart put it, he feels like a lame 7th grade teacher, while his talented apprentices have moved on to great things — but this could very well mean a new installment of Carell and Stephen Colbert’s brilliant “Even Stevphens.” Yesssssssssss!

    • laylagalise

      Me, too! I loved it when Steve was on Stephen’s show last year and they did a segment.

    That would be the Best Thing Evaaar!

    I thought Steve Carrell’s wife’s name was Nancy Walls and, I believe, she was most recently credited as Nancy Carrell in her last project.

  • Jon

    I would be all over this.
    I just hope they don’t neglect some of the less famous alums. I want to see Dan Bakkedahl revisit his sad-sack correspondent shtick. The segment he did with the guy who does Superman in from Mann’s Chinese is still one of my favorites.

    I love “Even Stevphens.” My favorite is the one with “Responsible Drinking” and Steve Carrell got so drunk he asked Colbert to punch him.

  • harry

    hell yeah!!!!

    Think about all of the news stories that the DS missed out on covering before it started – ” flashbacks” of DS correspondents covering all of the very mockable news events that came before the DS began.Watergate, Altamont/Woodstock, Bay of Pigs, McCarthyism, Hitler…

  • S.O.

    Don’t forget a “This Week in God” segment.

    • Katie G

      This Week in God was my FAVOURITE segement on The Daily Show.

  • Elizabeth

    Must bring Brian Unger back too – even though he was Daily Show 1.0.
    But yes – this would be the greatest.

    • Bc

      Love the idea of a reunion. And I agree it would be great if they could include people from Craig’s version of the show too.

  • JD

    OMGOMGOMGOMG! They HAVE to bring back Demetri Martin!
