The Ellen Degeneres Show

Jim Carrey is still in talks to play Curly in The Three Stooges, but according to his girlfriend, he's already preparing — by packing on the pounds.

During her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday, Jenny McCarthy discussed how the funnyman has been getting ready for the role.

"He's basically enjoying his desserts," she said. "He's going to gain 50 pounds to play Curly."

Though McCarthy admits she "has no idea what it's going to be like when he hits near 300 pounds," she thinks people will be impressed with Carrey's portrayal of the classic television character.

"I listen to him walking around doing Curly ... people are going to be blown away when they see him."

Do you think Carrey will do the role justice?
