MARSHFIELD: Carell expected to film locally

Local fans of actor Steve Carell are looking forward to the prospect of the part-time Marshfield resident filming on the South Shore this summer. Carell, star of TV’s “The Office” and numerous feature films, is expected to be in Massachusetts to shoot scenes from “The Way, Way Back,” which, according to the Internet Movie Database, is a comedy written and directed by two of the writers of the Oscar-winning adapted screenplay for “The Descendants.” Although media reports have said rumors are circulating that Carell will film in Marshfield, that information has not been officially confirmed. Molly Putnam, a clerk at the Marshfield Hills General Store owned by Carell, said, “Yes, there will probably be a movie on the South Shore, but we don’t know where at all.” Chuck Slavin, an actor and creator of the online group New England Talent Crew, said scouts are checking out locations in Massachusetts.
