Mel Brooks on Get Smart


The Los Angeles Times interviewed Mel Brooks, who co-created “Get Smart” with Buck Henry in 1965, about the upcoming Steve Carell action-comedy. Here’s a clip:

It’s got a good director, Peter Segal. Wonderful director. The writers were great. The producers were young and aggressive and smart. But the brilliance is Steve Carell. To choose a guy who’s right in the Don Adams groove. You couldn’t get a better guy than Steve Carell. And yet he doesn’t do Don Adams. He does none of his delivery. He just does Steve Carell.
