Carell wasn’t on Wednesday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” just to poorly mime eating a popsicle. He was also there to promote his apocalyptic comedy “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World.” The film, which co-stars Keira Knightley and a cute dog, opens June 22.

The actor has also started to do promotion, albeit in a very small way, for another, extremely buzzy project he’s involved in. I’m referring to “Anchorman 2,” of course.

Carell sent out this tweet, a reference to his “Anchorman” character Brick Tamland, earlier this week:

Looks like I am going to eat another big red candle.
