Actor Steve Carell - Once a Mail Carrier

The Littleton, Colorado Independent reports Golden Globe award winning actor Steve Carell is launching a new TV comedy inspired by a post office job he once held.

No one is exactly sure on when Carell was a letter carrier in Littleton, but Police Chief John Kelly suggested it was in the early ‘80s according to an article by Nathan Lamb.

Nathan says the town is offering Carell a key to the town and writes, "...Littleton has another connection with Carell, saying his brother Greg designed the town’s new police station. He said word of the town’s appreciation would be communicated through that channel, and Carell would be invited to receive the honor at his convenience."

According to an entry on the website, "Carell will write the comedy, tentatively titled The Post-Graduate Project. It is described as a sweet and nostalgic take on the period of Carell’s early life as a mail carrier and centers on a small-town post office frequented by a quirky but tight-knit group of local twentysomethings."

A veteran of the “Daily Show” and movies such as “The 40-Year-Old Virgin”and “Evan Almighty”, Carell has earned two Emmy nominations in the past four years for playing office manager Michael Scott on the NBC sitcom, “The Office.”
