First Look At Steve Carell And His Prosthetic Nose In Foxcatcher

Bennett Miller’s follow-up to Moneyball features Steve Carell as John Du Pont, in this real-life tale of a murderer.

Today we got our first look, via EW, at Carell and the make-up work that has been done to achieve a particular look for his character.

And here’s a picture of John Du Pont for comparison.

I’m never convinced that actors need to necessarily look like the people they’re portraying and efforts to do so with make-up are occasionally very distracting. Hopefully this is isn’t a J. Edgar sort of situation and the prominent make-up will not be the focus of ones attention when watching the film.

Foxcatcher will be released in America on December the 20th and the UK on January the 17th.
