Should have been a fireman...
~ Carl Bentley
Yeah, man. And I could've turned this whole town around. (Alan Parrish: Your shoes?) Right.
~ Carl to Alan remembering the incident at the shoe factory 26 years ago prior to Alan discovering Jumanji.

Carl Bentley is a major character from the 1995 fantasy film, Jumanji. , He was portrayed by comedian, David Alan Grier.

Biography

Carl was a close friend of Alan Parrish, and an employee of Alan's dad Sam's shoe company Parrish Shoes until he got fired from the Parrish Shoe Factory for a shoe Alan busted after Carl shows Alan a prototype shoe to show his dad, and was working as a policeman 26 years later.

After Alan is freed from the "Jumanji" game, he bumps into Alan while driving, (not knowing who he was) and asking Judy and Peter if this unknown man is related to him before the monkeys fool around with his police car, forcing him to go after the monkeys. While trying to investigate at Alan's old house, he sees Van Pelt and tries to arrest him, but Van Pelt damages his police car.

Carl then takes Alan in for questioning before Peter tries to cheat and transforms into a monkey. Carl eventually recognizes Alan and Alan handcuffs him to his car and Alan drives his car to the Sir-Sav-A-Lot store where Alan can reunite with the kids and Sarah. He and Nora try to open the door before the flood and the crocodile is released.

After Alan finally wins the game and time is reversed to 1969, Alan tells his dad that he caused the accident in the factory, not Carl, as Carl gets his old job back.

Towards the end of the film, he is seen at a Christmas Party in Alan's house, playing his guitar and Carl still works at the Parrish Shoe Factory as the Plant Supervisor while Alan takes over his dad's business while his dad is retired and living in a retirement home elsewhere.

Trivia

  • Before David Alan Grier was cast as Carl Bentley, Eddie Murphy, the late Bernie Mac and Sinbad were considered for the role of Carl Bentley.
