MTV First: Jim Carrey and Steve Carell13 Mar 2013
By Priya Baboota (Web correspondent)
Jim Carrey and Steve Carell joined Josh Horowitz, the host of MTV News, to talk about their upcoming movie "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone".
The show began with Josh introducing the two actors - Carell was laying on his lap and Carrey was resting his face on his shoulders and he also burped!
Each time Josh was asking them questions, both the actors changed their positions on the couch - sometimes leaning on each other, Jim massaging Steve's ears and climbing on the shoulders of Josh. Jim was also admiring Josh's ass.
In the interview, Steve and Jim talked about how they admire each other as good and talented actors. Steve recalled joining Jim in "Bruce Almighty" while he was still a correspondent on "The Daily Show." "I was in awe of him then. I am in awe of him now," he said. "That has not changed, absolutely honest. I couldn't believe I was doing a movie with him in "Bruce Almighty."
"Now you're a huge star, and my career is sucking eggs," Carrey joked. "Come on, let's be honest. Let's be honest!"
Then they talked about their characters in the movie and that they both are interested in doing another movie together in the future.
When Horowitz brought up Carrey's "Dumb and Dumber" character, Lloyd Christmas, in the context of Carell's equally dumb Tamland, it seemed to inspire Carrey's creative juices.
"We should make a mash-up," Carrey suggested. "It will be like an old monster movie — 'Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man.'"
"Want to do a cameo?" Carell whispered to Carrey. "Do a cameo as Lloyd? Come and meet Brick?"
"Maybe I will do a cameo in that movie. You never know!" Carrey said. And now that we're on the topic: What of that long-gestating "Dumb and Dumber" sequel?
"If they stop peeing on themselves long enough to make a decision, I'm in," Carrey said. "I think it's probably going to happen someday down the road. I'd like it to happen, so don't blame me. I want it. Oh, I want it bad."
At the end of the interview Jim said he is eagerly awaiting for "Kick-Ass 2" to release soon as he is excited about his role in the movie where he is unrecognizable.
