We can’t think of anyone more perfect to play Curly in the upcoming Three Stooges movie. Unfortunately, Jim Carrey decided to drop out for reasons unknown until now — he was worried that the weight he would have to gain for the character could cause drastic health problems.

Said Carrey:

"There wasn't any creative difficulties that led to this exit, but rather the weight gain for the role. For me, I don't really want to do anything halfway, and I don't feel like a fat suit does it. I started experimenting with it a little bit, and I gained 35, 40 pounds. I wanted to gain another 30, 40.”

Carrey explained that he was concerned that because of his age he would have trouble losing the weight when the movie finished:

"When you're (Robert) De Niro in your 20s or early 30s, you can kind of come back from that (weight gain). It's a tough thing to come back from when you're upwards of 30. Your body can't carry it or you can have a cardiac arrest."

We support his decision to pull out, even thought he would have been great!

Who do U think should replace him?
