BIOGRAPHY:

James Eugene Carrey is a Canadian-American actor, comedian, impressionist, screenwriter, producer and painter. He is known for his energetic slapstick performances.


TRIVIA:
  • Played a fictional man who is not (yet) aware he is on television on "The Truman Show" (1998) and a real life man who believed he was always on television "Man on the Moon" (1999).
  • Bought a Harley Davidson motorcycle and got a vanity license plate for it which read "NO TAG" as a joke. This resulted in Jim receiving numerous traffic tickets in the mail that were meant for other people. As it turns out, when filling out a ticket, police officers write "no tag" in the license plate number slot on the ticket when the offending vehicle has no license plate. In some cases, this was interpreted as the actual license plate number, as it was in Jim's case, which caused the tickets to be routed to him.
  • His total of nine MTV movie awards as of 2001 is the most MTV movie awards won by any person.
  • Is a huge fan of the cartoons Johnny Bravo, Spongebob Squarepants and Dave The Barbarian.
  • Wrote himself a check for $20 million and kept it in his wallet until he earned that amount for _The Cable Guy (1996)_ (qv).
  • Wrote letters to 'Tupac Shakur' (qv) when Tupac was in prison to help him laugh and smile. Tupac said that Carrey was his favorite actor.
  • His performance as "Ace Ventura" in _Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994)_ (qv) is ranked #97 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.
  • Was originally offered the lead role in the movie _The Master of Disguise (2002)_ (qv).
