Over the past four or five years, Jim Carrey has seemed bent on establishing himself as a serious actor, tackling roles in Man on the Moon and The Majestic (even playing a supporting role in Simon Birch). His last full-fledged comedic role (not counting How the Grinch Stole Christmas) was Me, Myself and Irene, which was released in June 2000. But regardless of how much his fans might complain while longing for the good ol' days of Ace Ventura and Dumb & Dumber, Carrey has never moved far from comedy. He may have been hurt when he didn't receive an Academy Award nomination for portraying Andy Kaufman in Man in the Moon, but he also seems to know what he does best.
