Get ready to see The Office star Ed Helms in a new light! The funnnyman plays the role of The Once-ler in the new animated film adaptation of the beloved children's book The Lorax. And in this iVillage exclusive clip, Helms offers a behind-the-scenes look at the movie (in theaters March 2) -- and explains what attracted him to the part.
"I remember reading the Dr. Seuss book The Lorax when I was much younger, and it became one of my all-time favorite books," he says. "The character of The Once-ler was always a bit of a mystery because you didn't get to see all of him in the book. And now here I am, playing The Once-ler in the new movie version of the classic story -- and it was really fun to see him in a much larger dimension."
