Like Stephen Colbert
, Steve Carell
's humble beginnings in entertainment started on a little program called 'The Daily Show.'
So when Carell visited 'The Colbert Report'
(weeknights, 11:30PM ET on COM), the two
insulted their respective career paths.
"I'm the one who moved on, grew up, while you hung around, tricking perfectly nice people into saying stupid things," said Carell.
"Steve, I am thrilled for your success -- Hell, I'm amazed
by it. Nobody who knows you saw this coming." Carell countered: "You are just jealous because you're stuck here in the same building, just a half an hour later. What's the matter -- doesn't Jon Stewart
's teat come with an extension cord?"
But the verbal smackdown eventually turned into hugs and weeping. "At least we're not working for Stewart," said Carell. Colbert agreed: "Yeah, that [beep] really held us back -- while he was launching our careers."
