Jim Carrey is the “Hollywood Movie Star of the Week”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: During his sit down on Bravo’s “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” Jim Carrey floored me with his range.
No, not the range of his facial expressions, which undoubtedly are as rubber as advertised. But the range of the projects that he chooses. Pure-bred comedies like “The Mask” and “Dumb and Dumber” are offset with deeper, human dramas like “The Truman Show” or “Man On the Moon.” The common denominator in each, whether it’s “Ace Ventura” or “Eternal Sunshine,” is Carrey … who is terrific in virtually everything.
Carrey’s latest is another for the kids. “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” casts the comedian as a corporate executive who reconnects with his estranged family with the help of six scene-stealing penguins. And while the film is getting good reviews, it was Carrey’s antics on the publicity trail that turned our heads.
For decades, Jim Carrey has been committed to entertaining us, both on screen and off. And that’s why, with “Penguins” pleasing families this Father’s Day weekend, we are very pleased to announce that Jim Carrey has been named our “Hollywood Movie Star of the Week.”
