So it makes sense that The Office star is an executive producer and one of the first celebrity guests on Riot, a new extreme game show premiering tonight on Fox.

“I have no idea what I’m getting myself into,” Carell jokingly told EW before filming alongside his Office co-star Andy Buckley. The show is based on the international hit franchise Slide Show and puts two teams of celebrities

MTV And Comic Andy Dick Sued
An actress has filed a lawsuit against MTV and comic Andy Dick - accusing them of sexually battering her and emotional distress. R. Sparkle Stillman, a 4 foot 2 inch actress who suffers from a spinal deformity, has filed a lawsuit against Dick and the channel over a comedy sketch that overstepped the mark. Dick, 35, is famous for spoofing celebrities on his show The Andy Dick Show and invites big names such as Mandy Moore, Ben Stiller and Moby to appear alongside him. He is famous for his character Daphne Aguilera, which alludes to pop princess Christina Aguilera and her infamous dress sense. Stillman alleges that upon arriving for filming in a Santa Monica park on June 18th, she was told the skit had been cancelled. However she goes on to report she was told to lie on her back and upon asking what was happening, an assistant director told her to, "shut up." She alleges that an unnamed naked man jumped on top of her and "simulated a sexual attack." Stillman is asking for unspecified damages and a court order to block the channel from broadcasting the episode.

Andy Dick To Direct Feature Film

Andy Dick To Direct Feature Film
One-time bad boy comic Andy Dick will make his big screen directorial debut with a script he's written called Taylor Made. Dick, who proudly reports he's now two years sober from his dangerous drug habit, will also star in the movie. He says, "I'll play Andrew Taylor, the fashion designer character I did for VH-1's Fashion Awards. The film follows Taylor through a whole year, from one fashion show, which is a dismal failure, to the next fashion show. In between he tries to direct music videos, get a fragrance off the ground and falls on and off the wagon. It's going to be pretty raunchy. I describe it as Waiting For Guffman meets Kids, but not as creepy as Kids." Dick expects to start work on Taylor Made in August, after he wraps seven more episodes of his MTV series The Andy Dick Show. And directing the TV show is what gave him the confidence to tackle a big-screen project. He explains, "I advanced a lot. We shoot so much on the series under such gruelling conditions in so little time, it's amazing."
