You can see exactly how he gives back to the world community at large in this Funny or Die video, embedded below. At the very least, he’s trying to do good, whether not he’s going about it the right way.
“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” stars Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi as Burt and Anton, respectively. The film is about the duo’s prominent spot in Vegas being jeopardized by a new magician–a street magician whose gaining fans with each stunt and trick:
“Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt’s growing ego. But lately the duo’s greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they’ve grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show looks stale. But there’s still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act—both onstage and off—if Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place.”
“The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” comes out March 15.
