From Grinch to Scrooge; Insider GOSSIP heart 100.7.

IT'S time for Jim Carrey to go all 'bah humbug' again. A few years after his performance as The Grinch, Carrey has signed up for the role of Scrooge in a 3-D adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

Rumour has it Bob Hoskins could also be in line for a role. Expect the release in the UK next Christmas.

WITH only a couple of weeks until The Simpsons movie hits the screens, one of its lead character voices Harry Shearer (aka Mr Burns and Otto) has spoken out.

He claims one of the major reasons the show is such a hit is that its owning TV network Fox has left them alone and not messed with the storylines. Apparently the writers have a clause in their contracts stating Rupert Murdoch's men can look but not touch!

REPORTS suggest Beyonce will play the role of Aida in a new film adaptation of the opera. Funnily enough, the role in the stage production was played by her Destiny's Child pal Michelle Williams.

SEEMS even dads sometimes don't know everything. Lionel Ritchie has admitted he has no idea if the gossip that his daughter Nicole is pregnant to her rock singer boyfriend Joel Madden is true. He stands up for his girl though. "If the internet camera phones and chat rooms were around when I was in the Commodores then God knows what my parents would have s aid!"
