JIM CARREY GETS TO WORK ON ‘MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS’ NOW THAT ‘THREE STOOGES’ IS ‘DEAD’

Looking more handsome than ever, Jim Carrey was busy shooting scenes for his new movie Mr. Popper’s Penguins in New York City today (November 11).

Well-dressed as a high-powered NYC business man, the Hollywood funny guy had his hands full of gift bags as he spent the morning filming on Park Avenue.

Directed by Mark Waters, the upcoming comedy co-stars Carla Gugino and Angela Lansbury, and tells the tale of of a businessman who begins to change after he inherits six penguins. And as he transforms his apartment into a winter wonderland, his professional side starts to unravel.

The new movie is set to release late summer 2011.

Meanwhile, Jim says the planned Three Stooges movie is a no go — for now, anyway.

“I think it’s dead,” he tells MTV. “It’s dead at least with me.”

As you recall, Jim was set to play Curly alongside Sean Penn (Larry) and Benicio Del Toro (Moe).

Jim admits that the difference in weight (Curly was a rotund comedian) would have been an insurmountable obstacle.

“For me, I don’t really want to do anything halfway, and I don’t feel like a fat suit does it,” he adds. “I started experimenting with it a little bit, and I gained 35, 40 pounds. I wanted to gain another 30, 40. When you’re [Robert] De Niro in your 20s or early 30s, you can kind of come back from that. It’s a tough thing to come back from when you’re upwards of 30. Your body can’t carry it or you can have a cardiac arrest.”
