As Carrey told The Wrap — focusing on his first profession as a performer rather than painter or critical-theory post-doc — “As an actor you play characters, and if you go deep enough into those characters, you realize your own character is pretty thin to begin with. You suddenly have this separation and go, ‘Who’s Jim Carrey? Oh, he doesn’t exist actually.’” An intriguing new resonance to be sure. He added, “There’s just a relative manifestation of consciousness appearing, and someone gave him a name, a religion, a nationality, and he clustered those together into something that’s supposed to be a personality, and it doesn’t actually exist. None of that stuff, if you drill down, is real.” Again, the continental and Eastern influences are there for the taking.
Jim Carrey? Seeing the actor—one of the most indelible, singular performers of his generation—mobbed by fans as he exits Deadline’s Toronto Studio, this seems an absurd question. Beloved for his signature, almost athletic gifts before the screen, Carrey has carried such comedic classics as Ace Ventura, The Mask, Dumb and Dumber, Liar Liar, The Truman Show and Man On The Moon. Smith: We went through that and then once we had a handle on the material, we set up a time to sit down with Jim and talk through everything, without any preconceived notions as to exactly what it would be, just hopes of different directions it could go in.TVLine Items: Supernatural Casts New Michael, Will & Grace…

Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond is about the making of Carrey’s 1999 Andy Kaufman biopic Man on the Moon, following Carrey as he looks back on his absorbing role as Kaufman. But, of course, the two eccentric comedians couldn’t resist poking some holes in the serious documentary genre, giving the film the full title, Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton.

TheWrap while at the Toronto International Film Festival to promote the documentary Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – The Story of Jim Carrey & Andy Kaufman Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton. It’s more than possible that being back in that Andy Kaufman headspace is what’s reviving Carrey’s dogged style of method acting/living — he referred to his creative process for the biopic Man on the Moon as being “psychotic” at times — and while this post-human zen-esque outlook is baffling to hear about, I’m all for it if that’s what makes the actor comfortable with his day to day life. But then, considering Kaufman was a master at manipulating situations that weren’t entirely real, who knows what Carrey is up to?

Man on the Moon. What followed was an intensely bizarre and emotional film production. Surrounded by Kaufman’s friends and family on set, Carrey thoroughly “became” Andy and, alternately, Tony Clifton, Kaufman’s obnoxious lounge singer alter ego. Much like Kaufman’s comedy, Carrey’s acting took on a performance art quality during the film. He never broke character on set, the cast and the crew referred to him as either ‘Andy’ or ‘Tony’ depending on who he was embodying (he had created complete and separate identities for each).Regarding the process of actually filming Man on the Moon, Carrey stated that “I was at a point in my life where I don’t care what the result is. It’s not about the result, it’s about being authentic.”
