A funnyman will do whatever it takes for the sake of his character apparently, that’s why Jim Carey is trying to gain 50 lbs to play the role of Curly in the Three Stooges movie, even though he has not been cast for the part yet!
Jim is rumored to be in line for the part alongside Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro, and he’s taking all the necessary steps to make sure he gets the part.
One person who has to put up with all the stooge antics is Jim’s girlfriend, Jennie McCarthy, who recently spoke out about the role preparation, saying,
“He’s definitely practicing the role of Curly… He’s basically enjoying his desserts… He’s going to gain 50 pounds to play Curly. He’s just having so much with it. I have no idea what it’s gonna be like when he hits near 300 (pounds) but, in his comedy, he works hard at it. I listen to him walking around doing Curly… People are gonna be blown away when they see him.”
If anyone has the chops for a Stooges movie, it’s Jim Carey!!
