Just days since we all saw that Paddington is going to have its title character shove ear wax in its mouth, Colin Firth has decided that maybe that's not the kind of bear that should sound like Colin Firth. So, the actor has all at once dropped the project, telling EW that he'll no longer provide a voice for the film--which is still on schedule for a winter release.

"After a period of denial, we've chosen 'conscious uncoupling,'" the actor said in a statement.

As is usual when he makes big-screen drama out of his awkward refusal to just speak into a microphone, Firth is now frontrunner for Best Actor.
