Holiday Movie fun fact of the day: Jim Carrey was actually first choice to play Buddy The Elf in Elf…. can’t see anyone else playing Buddy but Will Ferrell. Worked out pretty good that he didn’t get the part because he went on to star in How The Grinch Stole Christmas. The Grinch is a much different character from Buddy and we can’t really see anyone else playing him either. All worked out in the end.
