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.
