Starting with ''Film/TheTrumanShow'', [[TomHanksSyndrome he has successfully made the transition to more serious films]], with ''EternalSunshineOfTheSpotlessMind'' probably his most lauded serious role. It hasn't stopped him from appearing in goofy comedy as well, though, and nowadays he's well respected both aspects of his acting range. While not as popular as he was at his height in TheNineties, his career has proven surprisingly durable.

'''James Eugene Carrey''' (born January 17, 1962) is a colorful actor with a face for molding and often plays the central character. He had been acting since the mid-1980s, most notably in the short-lived sitcom ''The Duck Factory'', but came to attention as a TokenWhite cast member on ''Series/InLivingColor'' who managed to hold his own with several popular sketch characters, including Vera, the Mannish Bodybuilder, Fire Marshal Bill, a masochistic, cartoonishly destructive fire marshal hired to teach people fire safety (with disastrous results) whether or not he's somewhere where fire safety is needed, and Grandpa Jack, the depressed, divorced, alcoholic host of ''The Dysfunctional Home Show''. Some notable celebrity impressions include PaulReubens (as Pee-Wee Herman), Vanilla Ice, Tom Hanks (in a parody of the movie ''Philadelphia''), Sgt. Stacy Koon (from the infamous Rodney King beating trial in the early 1990s), George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Michael Bolton.

At the three-minute mark, Carrey!Conan makes fun of the facial contortions and catchphrases of Ace Ventura and The Mask.
