If you’re about to undertake the end of the world, Steve Carell might not be the worst companion to have by your side to wait out the apocalypse. Carell teams up with Keira Knightley in the upcoming comedy/drama Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, where the pair — both abandoned by their loved ones — bands together to take an incredible journey before everything comes to a crashing halt, courtesy of a timely meteor. In the video below, Hollywood.com Movies Editor Matt Patches interviews Carell, who discusses why he chose the film, the fun he had working with Knightley, and most excitingly, how well he would fare in a real zombie apocalypse.
Check out Carell’s interview below, and then watch the second video beneath it, in which Seeking a Friend writer/director Lorene Scafaria talk about setting an intimate human story before an epic, blockbustery setting.
