Jim Carrey Talks About Voicing Dr. Seuss' "Horton"

by | February 5, 2007 | Comments

Jim Carrey did such a bang up job as the live-action "Grinch" that he’s landed himself another Dr. Seuss gig. The "Horton Hears a Who" film will be animated with Carrey only providing the voice of Horton, but it pays to please the Seusses.

"I love, and have always loved all Dr. Seuss, and I’m lucky enough to have been the Grinch," said Carrey. "Audrey Geisel, Dr. Seuss’ widow, liked what I did and she asked me to do Horton."

The Horton story has bled into Carrey’s own personal musings on life. "I love that idea that a person is a person no matter how small and the idea of worlds within worlds within worlds. Because sometimes I sit out in my backyard and I look at the birds, and a hummingbird will come down, ‘Wap!’ goes flying past my head and will threaten me and stuff like that and I realize that he has no respect for my deed to the land. That’s his property as far as he’s concerned. And that’s just the reality, we think that we’re the ones in control, everybody does."

Carrey’s "Bruce Almighty" costar Steve Carell will voice the Mayor of Who-Ville, but they won’t cross paths until the film is done. "Everybody pretty much does their thing solo in those cartoons. We’ll be promoting it together I’m sure."
