A few years later he married comedy writer and actress Nancy Walls and the couple moved to NYC in 1999 to join The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. In 2005, Steve made the pivotal move to network TV, starring in the American remake of The Office. The show catapulted Steve to mainstream fame and helped him start a Hollywood film career in movies like Bruce Almighty, Little Miss Sunshine and The 40-Year-Old Virgin.
