Jim Carrey

S17/EP3

Bravo starts the year off on a high note as Golden Globe-winner Jim Carrey, one of the most sought-after guests in Inside the Actors Studio history, takes the hot seat on Monday, January 10th at 8pm et/pt. Host James Lipton first invited Carrey 17 years ago to appear on the show and on the night of the memorable taping, told the audience Carrey is worth the “17 years of foreplay.”

Leaving no stone unturned, Lipton courses through Carrey’s early days as a class clown in school to the janitorial job he had to take in order to support his family. Carrey talks about how he developed his character for Ace Ventura and reveals that his technique was similar to Anthony Hopkins method for creating Hannibal Lector. Carrey traverses his career from In Living Color, The Mask, The Truman Show, and his most recent blockbuster hit, I Love You, Phillip Morris, which was just nominated in the category of "Best Comedy" for the 16th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.
