Would Jim Carrey Ever Reprise His Most Iconic Movie Roles? He Says…

“My vision board is now more of the spiritual field of dreams,” he shared. “I want to learn how to stay in an expanded state of consciousness and yet still be able to deal with the world and pour myself back into this little shoebox called ‘Jim Carrey’ in order to do something to find commonality with other human units.”
One thing that’s definitely not on Carrey’s vision board: revisiting his previous roles, something many fans would love to see him do, especially after he reprised his Cable Guy character in a 2022 Super Bowl commercial.
“Unless some genius person, director, auteur, comes to you with a completely new take on what’s going on—like, if Chirs Nolan came to me and said, ‘I wanna make Ace Ventura real, and I wanna do something more interesting,’ then I might listen,” he revealed. “After a certain time, there’s not one cell in your body that is that person anymore, so you end up just imitating what you did in the old days, and the original inspiration isn’t there.”
So while fans might not see the return of Bruce Almighty or The Truman Show anytime soon, fans can check out Carrey this weekend when Sonic the Hedgehog 2 hits theaters April 8.
