Why Hollywood Won’t Cast Jim Carrey Anymore

From his humble start as a stand-out performer in the ’90s sketch comedy show In Living Color, Jim Carrey became one of the hottest comedians in Hollywood. With memorable starring roles in Ace Ventura, The Mask, Batman Forever, and Dumb & Dumber, Carrey proved himself as one of the best physical comedians of the 1990s. Even his turns in dramatic roles, like The Truman Show and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind were met with huge critical success. But whether you’ve enjoyed him in big-budget comedies or surreal dramas, for some reason he’s been seen on screen less and less in recent years. So, why won’t Hollywood cast Jim Carrey anymore?
