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

  • He was originally cast as "Dr. Evil" in _Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997)_ (qv), but he had to drop out of the role due to a scheduling conflict with _Liar Liar (1997)_ (qv).
  • Attended Agincourt Collegiate Institute (High School), in Scarborough.
  • Was considered for the role of Captain Jack Sparrow in _Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)_ (qv)
  • Turned down the offer to induct 'Jerry Lawler' (qv) into the WWE Hall Of Fame in 2007, for he believed the people in the audience would have come to the ceremony to see him, not the legends being honored that night.
  • Once performed "Rocket Man" on stage with 'Elton John' (qv) at one of Elton's concerts (1998).
  • As a kid, he was a member of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadets.
  • At one point his family lived out of their car/trailer.
  • Possibly out of slapstick to his nationality, his "Dick Harper" character of _Fun with Dick and Jane (2005)_ (qv) has been compared by fans to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
