FIRST PEEK: Fairly Odd live action

Not quite as jarring as the Yogi Bear movie, but here’s the first image of Jason Alexander and Cheryl Hines in makeup for Nickelodeon’s new live-action movie, A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow up Timmy Turner.

Note to Jason Alexander: I’m a fan – but stop doing cartoon characters! You didn’t do Boris Badenov any favors and do you really want this on your resume?

For comparison, below are the original cartoon characters (left); two fans at Comic Con who look a bit more accurate (center); and Jason as Badenov in the 2000 Rocky & Bullwinkle film.
