Jim Carrey has plenty of trademark characters to trot out -- Ace Ventura, the Cable Guy, Fire Marshall Bill, the Riddler (wait, scratch that one) -- but the funny man seems to be quite recently endeared to a new, highly specific one: fellow actor Matthew McConaughey in his Lincoln commercials. Carrey debuted his take on the admittedly overly dreamy commercials during last week's 'Saturday Night Live,' but he's not done with it just yet.
Comic book fans surely remember the '90s. It was a strange time to be a superhero fan. A dark time. A time when Joel Schumacher was directing Batman movies and baffling the entire world. A decade before Christopher Nolan made 'Batman Begins,' Schumacher made 'Batman Forever,' which featured Jim Carrey as The Riddler and Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face. No one remembers either performance fondly, but it turns out that there's some pretty interesting stories regarding their casting. It turns out that Jones did not like Carrey. Like, at all.
This coming weekend's 'SNL' will already be one to watch, returning Chris Rock to the stage after nearly two decades away, alongside legendary musical guest Prince. If that weren't exciting enough, the formerly known as "formerly known as" artist will also make 'SNL' history, eschewing his two performance slots for one eight-minute uninterrupted jam session. Plus, check out a Mike O'Brien digital short deleted from last week's Jim Carrey installment!
When the sketch embedded above begins, you think you know what's going to happen. All of the 'SNL' cast members at the office Halloween party will show off their increasingly elaborate costumes and accompanying impressions. But no! What ends up happening is far stranger and more specific.
Yeah it is a little strange that a newly minted Oscar winner like Matthew McConaughey would be caught dead making television commercials for Lincoln cars. However, it did lead to a series of fake 'SNL' commercials featuring guest host Jim Carrey playing the 'Dallas Buyers Club' and 'True Detective' star, so who are we to complain?
The first time Jim Carrey hosted ‘SNL,’ back in 1996, is still one of the most popular in the show’s history. His return in 2011 featured jokes about the upcoming 2012 apocalypse (that never happened). Carrey’s third time as host – with this heavily-themed Halloween episode -- will be most remembered for an impression of a music video that you may or may not have ever seen. Hey, here’s an ‘SNL’ Scorecard, just for you…
Only the second most exciting 'SNL' news of the week, this Saturday will see Jim Carrey returning to the stage for a third time alongside pop star Iggy Azalea. Ostensibly the show's Halloween episode, take at look at Jim Carrey's murderous and impression-heavy round of 'SNL' promos with Aidy Bryant!
This past weekend's 'SNL' with Bill Hader proved the best of the season so far (despite garnering an all-time low in ratings, ouch), but the laughs might get a little dumber toward the end of October. Jim Carrey has been confirmed to return to 'SNL' for a third hosting gig alongside musical guest Iggy Azalea, while this past weekend's show has spit out a new deleted sketch with Bill Hader.
Just when we thought news of 'SNL' season 40's big shakeups and early host announcements had come to a standstill before the September 27 premiere, yet another famous face may make a return appearance on the long-running NBC sketch comedy series. According to a new report, Jim Carrey will make his third hosting turn in an early season 40 episode, in promotion of upcoming sequel 'Dumb and Dumber To.'
