Top Five Movies – Sad Clowns

Steve Carell had two big dramatic releases this fall and winter with Beautiful Boy and now Welcome to Marwen. It got Jonathan (@berkreviews), Corey (@coreyrstarr), and Michael (@servermonkey) thinking about their favorite comedic actors more dramatic roles. Thus the topic for the episode is Sad Clowns – that moment when the funny guy or gal suddenly shows a softer side.
