Do you believe in magic? We sure hope you do — but even if you don’t, we’re sure to make believers out of you with “MTV First: The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.”
Airing Tuesday (March 12) at 7:56 p.m. ET, our latest round of “MTV First” goodness takes two of the magic world’s greatest rivals (or, at least, two of the comedy world’s greatest talents playing two of the magic world’s greatest rivals) and places them together on the same stage. “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” stars Steve Carell and Jim Carrey will be together in the hot seat, joining forces with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz to present an on-air clip from their new comedy at 7:56 p.m. ET. After that, they’ll all stick together for a 30-minute sit-down interview airing on MTV.com. Carell and Carrey will be doing more than just answering Horowitz’s silly line of questioning (yes, Josh, it really is important that you call them “illusions,” not “tricks”), as they will be opening the floor for fan questions, too.
If you’re still in need of more magic after our latest “MTV First” comes to a close, you won’t have to wait long for another dose. “Burt Wonderstone” leading lady Olivia Wilde will be joining Horowitz and MTV News later in the week on Friday (March 15) at 8 p.m. ET for “Rated MTV: Movie Awards Edition.”
Starring Carell, Carrey and Wilde, “Burt Wonderstone” tells the story of the titular Las Vegas superstar and his budding rivalry with street magician Steve Gray. The comedy hits theaters on March 15.
