Actor Steve Carell is not really 40 (he's 46), nor is he a virgin (he's married to Nancy Walls and has two kids). But, gosh, he's funny....

Fans of cosplay, prepare to have your worlds rocked! Everyone's getting in on the fantasy dress-up action, including the actors who bring your favorite characters to life!

Steve Carell
Steve Carell voiced Gru in Despicable Me I and II. To promote the second film, Carell appeared on Ellen and did the entire segment in character.

For talk show appearances and magazine spreads, our favorite voice actors are getting into character only to be outdone by the actors who show up at Comic Con dressed like, well, um...themselves?

They're real people just like us! But dressed as... the characters they play on TV! Okay, so it's hard to explain if you think about it for too long. 

Lending voice to cartoon characters is a treat for Hollywood's best and brightest, and a legitimate career path for people like Rachel FredericksonThe Biggest Loser winner. 

Let's take a look at a few more voice actors we'd love to see dressed in character in the real world.

There you are, doinking around on Facebook while your wee one watches cartoons when you hear it. A voice you recognize but can't quite place. YOU KNOW THAT VOICE!

You're totally not crazy. Many famous faces lend, or have lent, their voices to the animated screen, bringing characters large and small to life.

Voice acting is actually a lucrative career, one in which Rachel FredericksonThe Biggest Loser winner, worked before becoming a tabloid celebrity because of her dramatic weight loss. 

Some got their starts that way, while others retreated to the world of animation when their faces were too famous for them to play any other roles. 

Scroll through 21 celebrities who have voiced cartoon characters and see which ones you recognize immediately, and which come as a total surprise:

Mandy Moore
Mandy Moore brought Tangled's Rapunzel to life on the big screen. Now she's Sheriff Callie on Sheriff Callie's Wild West.

Paul Walker and Philip Seymour Hoffman's untimely deaths left voids in their unfinished projects.

While the Fast & Furious franchise opted to use Walker's real-life, non-acting brother to finish up, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay​ will go on with a computer-generated image of Plutarch Heavensbee in Hoffman's place. 

None of that would matter had those men had their very own celebrity doppelgänger. 

And after creating this celebrity look-alike gallery, we're sort of shocked no one tapped Joseph Gordon-Levitt to fill in for Heath Ledger. (Just wait until you get to #7 and see what we mean.)

Prepare to have your mind blown, ladies and THGers. These 19 celebrity look-alikes are so similar you won't believe they aren't related. (They aren't. We checked.)

Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel
Zooey Deschanel looks more like Katy Perry than she does her own sister. No Bones about it.

Slow WiFi is a uniquely modern problem, and one that fans of watching trailers and TV spots online encounter pretty much daily.

But worry not. When the TV spot below pauses to buffer, it's part of the video.

Well, unless of course you actually have slow WiFi while playing it. Then, you'll experience the elusive double-buffer (not to be confused with the delicious fast food burger the "double-beefer").

Check out the new Despicable Me 2 TV spot below:

Now THIS is how you market a movie.

Steve Carell appeared on Ellen today for an interview, only he wasn't actually Steve Carell. He was Gru, the lovable villain from Despicable Me and, of course, Despicable Me 2, which comes out on July 3.

Watch the actor stay in character, talk about Starbucks and then make his way through the audience in the following clip. Dancing, of course. Dancing like only Gru can:

Oh, kids. They're notoriously bad at interpreting pantomime.

Steve Carell is bringing back Michael Scott, if only for one night.

Having left at the end of Season 7 more than two years ago, the beloved actor will return to The Office for the series' May 16 finale, according to reports.

Just last week, creator Greg Daniels sought to quell talk of a Carell cameo, saying he did not want to overshadow the ending for the rest of the characters.

Reading between the lines, that meant Michael Scott's return would only be a small part of the series' much-anticipated swan song, not the focal point.

This year’s overall top winner? Funny or Die. The site co-founded by Will Farrell is certainly more funny than worthy of death, winning eight awards.
