Tina Fey Reunites With Her Hilarious Hero

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Comedy giants Tina Fey and Steve Carell got the chance to catch up – and crack up – this past Sunday (Jan. 27) at the 14th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

30 Rock actress Tina Fey – who won the SAG award for “Best Female Actor” in a TV Comedy Series – once honed her comedy chops at Chicago’s Second City training center, where she studied alongside The Office star.

Fey says, “I remember watching him [Carell] as a student and being absolutely blown away by his talent. To be here with him tonight, and to feel like I’m supposed to be a peer of his is actually really cool.”

And Carell – who, along with his Office co-stars, took a trophy for “Best Ensemble Cast” in a TV comedy series – returned the favor to his funny friend.

Carell said, “I was so proud of her tonight for winning. I think she’s one of the most hilarious women on television. She was great back then and she’s fantastic now.”

And when told of Fey’s compliment, Carell joked, “That’s really great that she said that about me. I would love a copy of that, actually.”
