Jim Carrey

JIM CARREY HAS NEVER LOOKED WORSE

But he doesn’t HAVE to look this bad.  This photo of Jim Carrey was taken early in the pandemic when he advised everyone to grow beards until the pandemic was OVER and then shave them off to celebrate. This was a bad idea for more than one reason. The first reason being that BEARDS- especially grey beards- make any man look decades OLDER and monumentally less attractive. (I remind readers of this as often as possible) The second reason for NOT having a beard is that they attract and hold GERMS- yes- COVID germs too! Paramedics and health officials are always advised to shave. Maybe we can blame BEARDS for contributing to this pandemic that never seems to end…

PEGGY SUE GOT MARRIED IS WORTH REVISITING

We came across this photo of young Nicolas Cage and Jim Carrey on Instagram and realized it was from a 1986 film we loved – Peggy Sue Got Married. (Named after the Buddy Holly song) Kathleen Turner starred as a woman about to be divorced who faints at her 25 year high school reunion and wakes up in 1960 when she was a high school senior. (This was filmed before Kathleen got that deep voice) Frances Ford Coppola directed the sweet and adorable story and he urged his nephew Nicolas Cage to play the part of Kathleen’s HS sweetheart. Cage’s performance can only be described as weird, but Kathleen got an Oscar nomination. Years later, when Kathleen wrote her autobiography she admitted that she wasn’t fond of Cage and accused him of having two DUIs and kidnapping a chihuahua while filming Peggy Sue. Outraged, he denied all and took her to court and won the case – she had to publicly apologize!

JIM CARREY BEFORE WE KNEW HIM

The look on this kid’s face is unmistakably familiar. It was taken back in the early 60’s when Jim Carrey was just starting to develop his personality. There was no way he was not destined to become someone special. Little Jim’s charisma was most likely a source of huge amusement to his parents but he probably always kept them a bit worried. Not many children have crazy little faces at his age…

JIM CARREY: DITCH THE GREY BEARD AND WATCH YOUR LUCK CHANGE!

Just as we were thinking “Whatever happened to Jim Carrey?” he happened to post this photo on Instagram which answered all our questions. WHY he posted this is unknown but we assume it’s a recent picture. The last time we saw Jim on TV (or anywhere) was Dec, 2019, when he appeared on Saturday Night Live imitating Joe Biden. After that, Alex Moffat took over the job. Around that time Carrey and his girlfriend, actress Ginger Gonzaga, also ended their relationship. Maybe that’s when Jim started growing this horrible grey beard. We urge Jim to shave it off ASAP- nothing good is likely to happen in his life until he does!

SNL’S NEW JOE BIDEN ROCKS

SNL did the right thing when they replaced Joe Biden impersonator Jim Carrey with Alex Moffat. Carrey had been appearing on the show all this season as Biden and stopped after he was elected. Carrey’s portrayal of Biden was rather unnerving and borderline creepy. Jim Carrey tends of overdo it and he turned low-key Biden into a seething madman. Series regular Moffat (last seen as Eric Trump) looks and sounds a lot more like Biden to start with, and he gently made fun of the new President without insulting him. He entered his scene with his booted foot and a cane and when he saw the camera he ditched the cane and turned a somersault to prove his virility. Looks like Maya Rudolph’s Kamala Harris character will obviously be the one in charge – she smoothly hustled “Biden” away to get the Covid vaccine.

JIM CARREY: TOTALLY MISCAST AS JOE BIDEN

We eagerly anticipated the return of Saturday Night Live for this new season – Chris Rock seemed like the perfect host (It’s hard to top Eddie Murphy from last year before the pandemic) with the added bonus of Jim Carrey playing Joe Biden. But what happened? Alec Baldwin carried on as his usual Trump – but Carrey’s inappropriate mugging was totally off the charts. (And not that funny!) Biden is HARDLY the frenetic, tooth flashing character that Carrey played. Joe is calm and subtle – everything Jim Carrey is NOT. Carrey’s exaggerated Fire Marshall Bill kept popping up in the impersonation. Since Jim (as Biden) is set for SNL for the rest of the season, we hope he can tone it down – and punch up the script to make it funnier.

NO KIDDING: JIM CARREY IS BACK ON TV

You can tell by the pageboy haircut that Jim Carrey is up to SOMETHING. In fact, he’s in LA filming his first TV series since the brilliant In Living Color back in the 90’s. Showtime ordered 10 episodes of the dramatic comedy, Kidding, in which Carrey’s character is the nice-guy host of a children’s show who teaches kids the right way to live while his own private life and family are falling apart. Impressive costars include Catherine Keener, Frank Langella and Judy Greer.

ANDY KAUFMAN WAS JIM CARREY’S INSPIRATION

Jim Carrey did an amazing job of channeling one of our favorite comics, Andy Kaufman, in the biopic Man in the Moon back in 1999. We still have a soft spot for Andy, who graduated from Saturday Night Live to the hit series Taxi and became a genuine celebrity. He died of lung cancer in 1984. We took him out to a Chinese restaurant for lunch once and he was always in character – when he took off his jacket he was wearing shirt cuffs with cufflinks – only the cuffs – with a short sleeve t -shirt. Jim Carrey is currently promoting a documentary, “Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond” all about these two oddball comics. It includes original footage of Andy performing and Carrey onset while filming the movie, and has surprisingly good reviews…

JIM CARREY’S BEARD IS NOT FAKE, BUT SOMETHING IS….

First of all, how does a 55 year old man manage to have a long white beard and not a grey hair on his head? We hardly recognized Jim Carrey and maybe he wants it that way. The last few years have not been great for him. Not long ago he was heartily criticized by the medical profession for advising parents NOT to vaccinate their children. In 2015, his Irish makeup artist girlfriend died of a drug overdose and her family sued Carrey for supplying her with the illegal painkillers she used to kill herself. Other sordid accusations followed, some involving sexually transmitted diseases. Coincidentally or not, he plays a serious not-funny character in his next movie – a crime thriller called True Crimes.

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY: WHAT’S SO FUNNY?

Matthew McConaughey maintained the deadpan look on his face as he walked through the airport with his wife Camila Alves. Maybe the paparazzi were teasing him about Jim Carrey’s SNL impersonation of him in his Lincoln car ads and he wasn’t amused. Ironically, the car the couple left in was NOT a Lincoln.
