"Elf" pretty much became a Christmas classic as soon as it was released, but in the 20 years since it came out I thought I would have learned more of these behind the scenes facts before now! For example, did you know that Jim Carrey was originally supposed to play Buddy the Elf, not Will Ferrell? Well check out some more of the facts I didn't know below, and see the full list from Buzzfeed HERE!
- Will Ferrell had health problems from all the sugar he ate while filming, including headaches and not being able to sleep.
- Buddy's 12 second burp wasn't voiced by Ferrell, but the same actor that voiced Brain from Pink and the Brain! His name is Muarice LaMarche.
- Will Ferrell turned down $29 million that he was offered for a sequel.
- The jack-in-the-boxes make the same noise as the laughing hyenas at the Magic Kingdom in Disney World.
The Buzzfeed article has even more so check it out, and excuse me while I go watch "Efl"!
