We've near dedicated our lives to tracking the many movies finding new life as TV series, and the latest might prove the most metafictional example yet. Among its many future TV offerings, Paramount is reportedly eying development of a TV adaptation of Jim Carrey's 1998 dramatic piece 'The Truman Show,' the reality implications of which already have us going cross-eyed.
Released in 1998, 'The Truman Show' starred Jim Carrey as Truman Burbank, a man who discovers he's been living in a world that's been constructed as a reality television show with him as the star his entire life. The satirical dark comedy was a massive critical and commercial success, and showed audiences a different side of the typically goofy Carrey. Sixteen years later, we revisit the cast of this contemporary classic and see what they're up to now.
In 1994, Peter and Bobby Farrelly made their directorial debut with 'Dumb and Dumber,' a film starring Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels as two incredibly stupid friends with good intentions who go on a road trip to return a briefcase to a beautiful lady in Colorado. The film was a major hit and has become a cult classic over the years, inspiring a lackluster prequel in 2003. This year marks the film's 20th anniversary, and with Carrey and Daniels reuniting for a highly-anticipated sequel, we're revisiting the cast of the film to see what they're up to now.
Released in 1996 and directed by Ben Stiller, 'The Cable Guy' was a dark comedy that showed audiences a different side of Jim Carrey. The actor played Chip Douglas, a lonely and disturbed cable guy raised on TV, who desperately tries to befriend Steven (Matthew Broderick), but when Steven doesn't readily accept Chip's zealous and intrusive overtures, he finds that there are sinister consequences. Produced by Judd Apatow (who didn't receive credit for the work he did on the script at the time), the film was a moderate success and went on to become a cult classic. Seventeen years later, we're revisiting the cast of the film to see what they're up to now.
In 1994, Jim Carrey -- the actor of many goofy faces -- introduced us to a brand new character: Ace Ventura. 'Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,' as the title implies, follows a man who can commune with animals as he helps local detectives locate a missing dolphin mascot, abducted from the Miami Dolphins. Now, 19 years later, we catch up with Carrey and the rest of the cast of this comedy classic to see what they're up to these days.
