Carol Burnett Goes To Work

“Horton Hears a Who” will be hearing Carol Burnett. She is joining Jim Carrey and Steve Carell in a new CG feature from 20th Century Fox Animation.

In the film version of Ted Geisel’s, “Dr. Seuss'” book, Carol will voice the role of Kangaroo. Carrey, who previously played the title role in the film version of Dr. Seuss’ “The Grinch” (“How the Grinch Stole Christmas”), is now the voice of the immortal Horton, the elephant. Carell voices the Mayor of Who-ville.

Carol’s previous outing as a film voice in an animated film was in “The Trumpet of the Swan” in 2001. She costarred with Jason Alexander, Mary Steenburgen and Reese Witherspoon. Lately, Carol has been on a Q&A tour raising funds for the Carrie Hamilton (her late daughter) Theater at the Pasadena Playhouse.
