Jim Carrey Talks GOODFELLAS, Don Knotts and MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS

Jim Carrey interview MR. POPPER'S PENGUINS slice 2

I’ve learned a valuable lesson: if I wear my Goodfellas t-shirt during an on camera interview, I should expect whoever I’m speaking with to talk about the movie.  The last time I wore it was for The Adjustment Bureau, and I spent most of my time with Matt Damon discussing Martin Scorsese and his gangster masterpiece.  Actually, if you missed that interview, it’s one of my favorites.  Make sure to watch to the very end as Damon tells an awesome Godfather story.

Anyway, the reason I’m talking about my Goodfellas t-shirt is that I wore it when I interviewed Jim Carrey for his new family film, Mr. Popper’s Penguins, and like last time, we spent a lot of time talked about the film.  Of course, we also talked about how he got involved with Mr. Popper’s Penguins (he admits to loving the animals) and the conversation even moved to the late/great Don Knotts at one point.  Hit the jump to watch.

Based on the 1938 children’s novel, Carrey stars as a divorced New York real estate developer who inherits some penguins from his kooky father.  The film also stars Carla Gugino, Angela Lansbury, Clark Gregg and Madeline Carroll.    You can watch the trailer here.
