Do you know the most amazing moments of Jim Carrey’s career?

Like, for example, a Czech look-alike quietly pretending to be him at an award ceremony!
HE SINGEDE GUNS N’ ROSES IN A CLINT EASTWOOD FILM
His debut on the big screen, jim carrey performs them with true legends of the seventh art. In 1986, the young Canadian indeed turned under the direction of Francis Ford Coppola with a small role in Peggy Sue got married and then distinguished himself two years later in The Last Target, the last film starring Inspector Harry incarnate by Clint Eastwood.
In The Last Target, Jim Carrey, credited here as James Carrey, plays the character of the rock singer Johnny Squares. The actor has a scene just for him, where we see him shoot the music video for his song Welcome To The Jungle (actually a title of Guns N’ Roses) under the direction of a certain Liam Neeson. Johnny Squares will then be found dead by Inspector Harry, a funeral being organized in his honor in the presence, for a luxury cameo, of the real Guns N’ Roses!
HE PLAYED IN THE OFFICE
Did you know that jim carrey made a cameo in The Office? In 2011, in the episode Search Committee, the last of season 7 of the comedy series, the actor embodies one of those who apply to succeed Steve Carell as regional manager. The episode is rich in luxury guests, since in addition to Carrey, we find in particular Ricky Gervais (the hero of the British version), James Spader or Will Arnett.
This appearance on The Office wasn’t Jim Carrey’s first foray into the world of series. In 1984, the actor was indeed the headliner of the little-known The Duck Factory, a show that sees him play the role of a cartoonist-animator going to Hollywood to find work. Hired by a firm with a very low budget and a very special atmosphere, he was appointed producer following the death of the founder!
Remember that Jim Carrey recently returned to the small screen with the lead role in the Showtime series Kidding, directed by Michel Gondry.
HE IS A PAINTER AT HIS LOST HOURS
world famous actor, jim carrey sometimes indulges… in painting! A “hobby” that the public was able to discover in 2017 with the documentary Jim Carrey: I Needed Color, in which the Hollywood star reveals that it was after a breakup that he took up the brushes. “I think painting frees me from the future, from the past, from regrets, from worries”declares the Canadian.
Jim Carrey’s paintings are varied, but it should be noted that with his works, he once tackled social issues by handling satire, portraying political figures including Donald Trump. Funny when you know that the 60-year-old comedian, on behalf of NBC’s Saturday Night Show, recently dressed up as a Joe Biden criticizing the ex-tenant of the White House!
HE DOES A FEATURING ON THE LATEST ALBUM OF THE WEEKND
At the start of the year, jim carreydecidedly jack-of-all-trades, created a surprise by participating in Dawn FM, the fifth studio album by Canadian singer The Weeknd. In the role of a radio presenter, the Hollywood star acts as a kind of red thread of the record, speaking slowly in a deep and haunting voice on three tracks.
“I just listened to Dawn FM with my friend Abel, known as The Weeknd. It was deep and elegant. It made me dance all over the room. I am delighted to play a part in his symphony”said Jim Carrey on social networks about this surprising collaboration.
A TCH LOOK-AlikeÈWHAT PASSED AS HIM AT A CEREMONY
The scene is somewhat surreal. In 2015, at a major award ceremony in the Czech Republic, a man managed to impersonate jim carrey although he looks very vaguely like him!
Originally from the Balkans, a certain Hari Zinhasovic replayed Jim Carrey’s Liar, Liar in his own way, managing to fool (we can imagine over a fairly long period of time) the Czech Academy of Cinema and Television. In a press release, the latter tried to justify herself: “The perfect communication with the supposed agent of the Hollywood actor, the presence of bodyguards and an interpreter, it was all very professional and there was nothing to suggest that it was a ruse.”
