“[Steve Carell] just slays me,” he said. “There’s something in his eyes. There’s a lot of times when I was doing a scene with Steven and I had to look at his chin, otherwise, I would just lose it.”
Helms went on to reveal that Carell was so funny in a particular sequence from the season six Christmas episode “Secret Santa” that he simply could not keep it together.
“There’s an episode where he’s playing Santa,” Helms explained. “Kevin is sitting in his lap, and he’s so awful about it, because it’s uncomfortable for him, and he’s just being really rude and weird and mean about it. I had to duck behind a plant—you can see in the actual episode. And by the way, that was like take 30, because I had been laughing in every single take. He’s a genius.”
