Jim Carrey is undoubtedly one of the most beloved actors of all time, thanks to his iconic roles in films such as ‘The Truman Show,’ ‘The Mask,’ ‘Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind’ and many such films. That said, his representative has responded to rumors of him starring in the sequel to one of his Christmas classics.
Jim Carrey’s representative has responded to recent reports suggesting that the actor is gearing up to revive his beloved role as the Grinch in a sequel to the 2000 film “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” The original live-action adaptation proved to be a massive success, raking in an impressive $260 million at the domestic box office and solidifying its status as a timeless Christmas classic.
Carrey’s portrayal of the Grinch has achieved iconic status, earning a prominent place in the holiday celebrations at Universal Studios theme parks. The character has become synonymous with the festive season. However, Jim Carrey’s spokesperson has swiftly dispelled the rumors. The representative informed People magazine that there is no truth to such rumors.
“There is no truth to Jim reprising his role as the Grinch in a sequel to The Grinch.”
Carrey’s future in the film industry is already uncertain after he announced that he was ‘fairly serious’ about retiring from acting last year. Regardless, we’ll have to see if he has retired for good.
