Jim Carrey

Funny resume: “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. Serious turn: He played Andy Kaufman 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.” Did it work?: 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.
