Jim Carrey

<B>Funny resume</B>: “In Living Color,” “The Mask,” “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” “Dumb and Dumber” and a host of other broad comedies relying on Carrey’s face-contorting genius.<br>
<br>
<B>Serious turn</B>: He played <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB002707" title="Andy Kaufman" href="/topic/entertainment/andy-kaufman-PECLB002707.topic">Andy Kaufman</a> in “Man on the Moon,” the trapped reality TV star Truman in “The Truman Show,” and broken-hearted lover Joel Barish in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”<br>

<B>Did it work?</B>: There was a time when the phrase “Aaaaalrighty then” made us want to stick screwdrivers in our eyes, and we could do without missteps like the weepy “The Majestic” and the snooze-inducing thriller “The Number 23.” But Carey has proved himself a winning dramatic actor, and capable of more than restraint when paired with the right material and director.
