• Happy Birthday Jim Carrey !!!

    17th January 2012

    Actor-Comedian Jim Carrey will be celebrating his 50th birthday today.

    Jim Carrey was born on 17th January 1962 in Newmarket, Ontario, the son of Kathleen , a homemaker, and Percy Carrey, a musician and accountant.

    Jim Carrey is arguably one of the best and top most comedians in Hollywood.

    He debuted at the Comedy Club at the age of 16. By age 22, he was making a good living as a standup comic, and was starring on the short-lived sitcom "The Duck Factory" -- a series which curiously did little to take advantage of its star's uncanny physical dexterity.  1994 proved to be "The Year of Carrey," with the release of three top-grossing comedy films to his credit: "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective", "The Mask", and "Dumb and Dumber".

    By the end of the year, Carrey was commanding seven to ten million dollars per picture. In 1995, the actor/comedian took over for Robin Williams as "The Riddler" in the blockbuster film Batman Forever, and, in 1996, he tried his hand at a darker and more menacing role as a maniacal cable repairman in "The Cable Guy".  Following a return to all-out comedy in "Liar, Liar"  as a chronically dishonest attorney, Carrey explored new territory with his lead role in the highly acclaimed "The Truman Show" , Peter Weir's eerie comedy drama about the perils of all-consuming media manipulation.

    Carrey returned to straight comedy the following year with the Farrelly brothers' "Me, Myself & Irene", in which he starred as a cop with a split personality, both of whom are in love with the same woman (Renée Zellweger). Though that film fared the least successful of the Farrellys' efforts to that point, Carrey's anarchic persona was given seemingly free range and the result was his most unhinged role since "The Mask". That same year, he bagged the lead role in Ron Howard's Dr. Seuss's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". He went on to receive a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor.

     Carrey returned again to both comedy and box-office success with "Bruce Almighty" opposite Jennifer Aniston. After handily proving that his power as a big-screen star was very much intact, Carrey embarked on his most ambitious project to date, the 2004 mind-bending romantic-dramedy "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind". Scripted by Charlie Kaufman and directed by Michel Gondry, the film garnered rave reviews and featured what was arguably Carrey's most subtly complex and subdued performance to date.Later in 2004, Carrey was seen alongside Meryl Streep and Jude Law in the much-anticipated adaptation of the children's book "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events". He also starred in a thriller/mystery film "The Number 23". His portrayal of Carl Allen in the film "Yes Man" earned him various awards and critical appreciation from audiences.
