Jim Carrey as the Genie?


Will Smith was better than I thought he would be as the Genie, but I can't help but wistfully imagine how Jim Carrey's take would have been. Being an improv actor as well, he would have been my second choice for the animated Genie if for some reason, Robin Williams couldn't do it - I mean come on, his character as the Mask is a dead ringer for the Genie!

I would prefer Jack Black.
The original genie was fat, not full with muscles. A blue Jack Black would be great as the genie

Jack Black would have been interesting. But the improv skills and impressions I saw Jim Carrey do in The Mask...I would have loved to see what he would have incorporated into the character. I wish he would have at least been the Genie on Broadway.
