Matt Lauer, Steve Carell, and Julianne Moore on 'Today'Steve Carell is one of the funniest comedic actors around, but every so often he's called upon to play it straight. Matt Lauer brought up Carell's versatility on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC), when he and Julianne Moore stopped by to promote their new film, 'Crazy, Stupid, Love.' He asked Carell if he felt comfortable doing drama, and also how it felt to see 'The Office' go on without him.

To answer Lauer's first question, Carell said, "Yes, I am a very fine dramatic actor. I know that's the point you were trying to make." Lauer laughed and said he wanted Carell to say it himself. "Well, I wanted to say it, and I was hoping that that subject would come up, because I really have a lot of pride in my dynamic dramatic acting," Carell deadpanned, motioning toward Moore. "She was so intimidated by me."

Carell also said it felt weird to know that 'The Office' had started work Monday without him. "It's a little odd," he said. "It's a little strange. I miss my friends." Lauer mentioned that Carell could always go back and do a cameo. Carell said yes, he could go back, then shook his head and mouthed a silent "no." New Sabre CEO James Spader is kind of scary. We don't blame him for staying away.
