Creepy or not (and, yes, we still vote “not”), the upcoming Paddington Bear feature film, simply called Paddington, like he’s Cher or Madonna or another one-named pop star, is now in need of something pretty crucial: someone to voice the traveling Peruvian teddy bear. Entertainment Weekly reports that star Colin Firth (that would be “the thoroughly British” actor who, at least on paper, sounds like a nice fit for the curious bear with an exceedingly British fashion sense) has left the project, leaving the animated bear without a voice. Okay, now that is actually creepy. Firth, who will be forgiven for referring to the decision to part ways as a “conscious uncoupling” in a statement to the outlet, shares that he’s left the project for a seemingly simple reason — because he’s just not right for the part. Again, Colin Firth is the wrong person to play an animated teddy bear. Noted. Consider his offer to play Pooh in the next (totally fictional and only exists in our minds) Winnie the Pooh outing rescinded.
