Mentally ill billionaire Steve Carell introduces himself to wrestling hopeful Channing Tatum in a new clip from the upcoming drama “Foxcatcher.”

The Annapurna/Sony Pictures Classics film, directed by Bennett Miller (“Moneyball”), follows the true story of wrestler brothers Mark (Tatum) and Dave Schultz (Mark Ruffalo) as they live and train at the Foxcatcher Farm, which has been turned into a wrestling facility by paranoid schizophrenic heir John du Pont (Carell). After du Pont kills Dave, Mark vows to seek justice.

Carell's performance as a pampered aristocrat teetering on the brink of insanity is a complete departure from his previous comedy films. ”Foxcatcher” was originally supposed to be released in 2013, but Miller reportedly wanted more time to fine-tune the film.

“Foxcatcher” also stars Sienna Miller, Vanessa Redgrave and Anthony Michael Hall. It opens in theaters on a limited release on Nov. 14.
