I knew that Lemony Snicket's book series "A series of Unfortunate Events" had been optioned for motion picture-ness. I guessed that the principal child actors, like in the Harry Potter films, would likely be unknowns, so the adults would have to be box office draws.
So, who might lend that Edward Gorey-esque air to the role of evil Count Olaf?
Would you believe Jim Carrey?
I'm already prepared to HATE this film.
As Sunny would say, "BITE!".
