Benedict Cumberbatch Will Voice The Grinch

 

Move over Jim Carrey ’cause you’re being recast. Benedict Cumberbatch is set to voice the iconic character in a new animated movie based on Dr Seuss’ “How The Grinch Stole Christmas.”

Cumberbatch, 39, was chosen for the role according to the CEO of Illumination Entertainment, Chris Meledandri, because: ‘We were determined to make a choice that would not only define this version of The Grinch as absolutely singular, but most importantly, we were looking for a voice to express comedic wickedness while embodying vulnerability. It is that vulnerability that allows us to create a character that is not only highly entertaining, but also has an irresistible appeal.’

Carrey famously played the character in 2000 Christmas hit, Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
