Two high profile comedic actors, Steve Carell and Jim Carrey, are all set to join forces for the second time, having already starred together in the 2003 hit Bruce Almighty. The catch is, technically, neither of them will actually be seen on the screen. As it turns out, the union of these two comedians will not be seen, only heard, as they plan to team up for a big-screen adaptation of Doctor Seuss' famous children's classic Horton Hears a Who for 20th Century Fox. Remarkably, this will be the first time Carrey has lent his voice to a CGI character -- but not the first time he's done a Doctor Seuss adaptation (remember the Grinch film?). As far as who plays who, Carrey will voice Horton, while Carell will speak for the tiny mayor.

I imagine many of you out there (including myself) have particularly fond memories of Horton Hears a Who. And oddly enough, I find myself rather excited by the idea of a CGI version of it. It'll be interesting to see if they can successfully stretch it out into a full length movie, and I expect I'll be in the theater to check it out. What do you think?
