Following recent rumors about Jim Carrey reportedly reprising his iconic role as the Grinch in an upcoming movie, the Golden Globe winner immediately addressed The Grinch 2 casting rumor.

According to People, Carrey’s representative debunked the reports about the acclaimed actor’s return as the Grinch in a potential sequel to 2000’s classic Christmas movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas. “There is no truth to Jim reprising his role as the Grinch in a sequel to The Grinch,” said the rep.

This Grinch 2 rumor comes after Carrey previously announced his decision to retire from acting following his performance as Dr. Robotnik in 2022’s Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Now that he has decided to step away from acting, it’s currently unclear if he will be reprising his role as the villain in the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog 3.

Seaman. Besides Carrey, the film starred Christine Baranski, Taylor Momsen, Jeffrey Tambor, Bill Irwin, and Molly Shannon.

During its theatrical run in November 2000, the film received a worldwide gross of over $345 million at the box office, making it one of the highest-grossing holiday movies of all time. The story was adapted into an animated film by Illumination, which featured the voice of Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular character.
