Jim Carrey Is America's Favorite to Play Uncle Sam


Jim Carrey


The 'Bruce Almighty' actor gets forty-six percent of the votes in an online poll to find out who people want to see as the depicter of the U.S.' personification in a movie

Patriotic internet users are calling for Canadian-born Jim Carrey to be cast as Uncle Sam in a movie about the fictional symbol of all things American. In an online poll to mark Independence Day in the U.S. on Sunday, July 4, visitors to WENN.com were asked who they would choose to play the bearded and top hat-wearing character.

And nearly half chose the rubber-faced funnyman, who gained U.S. citizenship in 2004. Forty-six per cent voted for Carrey, 26 per cent for Robert De Niro, and comedian Chris Rock a close third with 25 per cent.

Uncle Sam first materialized in the early 19th century as a symbol of America and its government and has since appeared in numerous books and cartoons.
