Carell also happens to be one of many celebrities rounded up by E! who are decrying Sony's move to pull The Interview. "Sad day for creative expression. #feareatsthesoul," he tweeted yesterday. (One Interview star says it's sad that North Korea's own fear and intimidation tactics also "work on our soil.")
