Jim Carrey is an eager beaver

Carrey linked to Kyle Killen’s “The Beaver”

Jim Carrey is reportedly attached to the lead role in The Beaver, with Jodie Foster eyeing the comedy as a directing vehicle.

The Kyle Killen script has attracted the attention of Carrey, who will portray a man who walks around with a beaver puppet on his hand believing it to be real. Steve Carell was previously attached to the project.

Carrey will next be seen in Robert Zemeckis’s A Christmas Carol, to be released later this year.
