Revealing whether there's any truth to reports that he was being sought out for a role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy film, make the jump and check out what actor/comedian Jim Carrey has to say!

During the 2013 South by Southwest (SXSW) premiere of The Incredible Burt Wonderstone comedy, GeekscapeDotNet caught up with veteran Comedian Jim Carrey, when the Kick-Ass 2 actor addressed his rumored involvement with Marvel’s forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy adaptation. “Never heard of it,” Carrey said unhesitatingly. “There’s a whole world out there created on its own.” About the Kick-Ass sequel, however, the actor says, “It’s gonna be fun...I had a blast.”

It was reported back in late January that Jim Carrey and fellow comedian actor Adam Sandler were inquired about their availability for roles in Guardians of the Galaxy; presumably to voice either Rocket Raccoon or Groot. However, given that Carrey has “never heard of” the 2014 space epic, it was either untrue or Marvel’s inquiry didn’t get pass the comedians’ reps. What do you think?

Marvel Studios presents “Guardians of the Galaxy”—A big space epic featuring an unlikely cast of Marvel characters, including Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot and Rocket Raccoon, who must team up in order to defeat a cosmic force of epic proportions. So far starring Chris Pratt and directed by James Gunn from a screenplay by James Gunn, “Guardians of the Galaxy” is based on the Marvel comic book series “Guardians of the Galaxy,” first published in 1969 and revived in 2008. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures will distribute “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014, in 3D. In addition, Marvel Studios will release a slate of films based on other iconic Marvel characters including “Iron Man 3” on May 3, 2013; “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; the sequel to “Marvel's The Avengers” on May 1, 2015; and “Ant-Man” on November 6, 2015!

Wildaniel - 3/9/2013, 11:50 AM
Worst casting ever if he is in the movie!
Jaspion - 3/9/2013, 11:54 AM
Was he involved with this?
mawilli4 - 3/9/2013, 12:01 PM
I could see him doing the voice of Groot.. but that's it.
SimyJo - 3/9/2013, 12:06 PM
LLLLLLLLike a Groot.
MarkJulian - 3/9/2013, 12:18 PM

Spidey91 - 3/9/2013, 12:20 PM
c'mon guys,of course he could only provide the voice for Groot or Rocket. what did you think? that he was being considered to play Star-Lord or Drax? lmao
DaenerysTargaryen - 3/9/2013, 12:24 PM
better than Sandler
darkjoker1 - 3/9/2013, 12:25 PM
blahahaha i love jim carrey but noo i dont want him to ruin GOTG....-__- and look he denies so it was a rumor thank god its not true..-_-
AC1 - 3/9/2013, 12:27 PM
If Sandler is cast in this movie, I won't watch any more Marvel Studios movies. I seriously can't stand him. So [frick]ing annoying. Makes me want to pull out my eyeballs and shove them into my ears so I can't see or hear him anymore.

Carrey wouldn't be the worst guy to cast in this though. I mean, he's definitely not someone I'd actively want in the movie, but he wouldn't make or break the film for me, especially if he just played Groot (that means he'd just say 'Groot', right?). I like Jim Carrey, but there are far better choices for Rocket Raccoon, and I hope they get an actor with a voice that seems like a mismatch for the character but is hilarious, quirky and awesome when you actually see it for yourself.
ForeverPowerful - 3/9/2013, 12:27 PM
Carrey I dont mind. He can be good when he wants to be.

Sandler please dear god no. Just....no.
AlanWarlock - 3/9/2013, 12:27 PM
Thanks, Jim. I remember when you were funny.
WelcomeBackFrank - 3/9/2013, 12:28 PM
To me, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, or Steve Coogan would be the ideal Rocket Raccoon. As for Groot, someone like Tony Todd or Peter Mensah.
Nivekian - 3/9/2013, 12:29 PM
I like the suggestions of Jason Statham or Cary Elways.
AC1 - 3/9/2013, 12:32 PM
Just to clarify... that stuff I said about Sandler... I meant I hate him in movies. I'm sure he's an alright guy in real life. But I hate him as an actor.
Bread - 3/9/2013, 12:34 PM
Jon H. Benjamin for Rocket Raccoon
bayouboyz - 3/9/2013, 12:40 PM

Perhaps, Charlie Day for Rocket Raccoon?
BlueDemon - 3/9/2013, 12:42 PM
Give him Rocket Raccoon!!!

typicalfanboy - 3/9/2013, 12:43 PM

DocDrop - 3/9/2013, 12:49 PM
Jason Statham for Roccet Raccoon!
ThePowerCosmic - 3/9/2013, 12:51 PM
Marvel would NEVER put him or Sandler in a film. I guarantee it.
yinyangpalms - 3/9/2013, 12:51 PM
He doesnt look well.
SpideyQuad - 3/9/2013, 12:53 PM
Marvel should hire me to do the voice of Groot. I will do it purely if they pay my expenses.
KnobGoblin - 3/9/2013, 12:57 PM
Carrey's gonna own Kick Ass 2.
maryboo - 3/9/2013, 1:07 PM
And people still trust Latino Review.
SaxoWolf - 3/9/2013, 1:27 PM
DrRockso - 3/9/2013, 1:28 PM
Maybe they'll get Ray Romano to voice Groot
TheGambitFreak - 3/9/2013, 1:33 PM
screw Romano, get Brad Garrett!
AmazingFantasy - 3/9/2013, 1:35 PM
for RR:

AmazingFantasy - 3/9/2013, 1:35 PM
Garret as Groot would be phenomenal
Inhuman - 3/9/2013, 1:48 PM
Jason Statham should be Rocket Raccoons voice!
NebulaFields - 3/9/2013, 1:49 PM
No, no, no...
Get the best voice actor ever in Billy West.
He could do anything you wanted him to do and nail it.
NoJobBOB - 3/9/2013, 2:54 PM
Love Jim Carrey. Would be awesome to see him in GOTG
WhiteSAMURAI - 3/9/2013, 3:13 PM
Couldn't care less.
InfiniteMonkey - 3/9/2013, 3:23 PM
Keep this bloke as far away from any Marvel made movies.
Send him to a DC movie, seeing as how he's already a veteran of it.

Keep Marvel movies safe.
ComfortablyNumb - 3/9/2013, 3:24 PM
Do it.
Tony93 - 3/9/2013, 3:28 PM
