Sean Young Filmed some Behind the Scenes on Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

It seems that Sean Young managed to get some behind the scenes shots on Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Tone Loc steps right up to the camera but Jim Carrey just doesn’t want to at all it would seem. Sean doesn’t mind getting in the shot and gives a very detailed sense of what it’s like to work with Jim Carrey. Jim gets in the shot more than once but usually it’s during filming and you don’t really get to see any other reaction that isn’t scripted. In short this is kind of a film for Sean Young’s benefit since she’s

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: For Natalie Portman, Second Time’s Not Quite the Charm When It Comes to Hosting

‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: For Natalie Portman, Second Time’s Not Quite the Charm When It Comes to Hosting
Natalie Portman’s hosting gig back in 2006 isn’t all that memorable. You might think it was, because it featured the unforgettable “Natalie Raps,” but chances are that’s all you remember. (The episode also had the final appearance of The Needlers, if anyone was clamoring for that fun fact. The episode actually is pretty good as a whole though.) So 12 years later, with the memory of that rap — and nothing else — in the lead-up to this episode, there was, of course, palpable excitement. Plus, it’s kind of unheard of for such a big star — and a consistent one at that — to host “Saturday Night Live” once, leave a lasting mark in at least one form, and then just not host again for over a decade. It’s almost as gangsta as the Natalie Portman we know from her rap.

They’re Just Friends (and Maybe Also Lovers) in Friends Pitch Meeting

Screen Rant reveals what must have happened during NBC’s early ’90s pitch meeting in which all the most iconic aspects of F.R.I.E.N.D.S came to be. NBC revolutionized the Thursday primetime line-up. Thursday was a death sentence until Friends came along, and it became Must See TV. Populated with a bunch of relatively unknown actors (Courteney Cox was the most famous at the time but she pretty much only had Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and that one Bruce Springsteen video going for her), the sitcom would go on to be one of the most influential series in television history. And those fledgling actors would eventually become major Hollywood players pulling in a whopping million dollars per episode.

Iffam: Udo Kier to Receive Career Award

Iffam: Udo Kier to Receive Career Award
Veteran German actor, Udo Kier is set to receive a career achievement award this week at the International Film Festival & Awards. With more than 200 films to his credit, he deserves an award for longevity, if nothing else.

In his career early days, Kier was associated with numerous horror and genre films, ranging from the niche, to the mainstream and art house. Some had titles like “Spermula,” “Oi Erotomaneis,” and “Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein.” But the 1970s also saw him star in notorious Bdsm drama “Story of O,” and Dario Argento’s horror classic “Suspiria.”

Since then he has built a career that stretched from Europe to Hollywood, and encompassed TV (“Berlin: Alexanderplatz,” “Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated”) as well as film. Hollywood roles include “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” “Blade” and disaster film “Armageddon.” Big-budget Euro-Chinese indie, “Iron Sky: The Coming Race” recently brought him to China to shoot.

Ace Ventura being lined up for a reboot

Simon Brew Oct 27, 2017

Ace Ventura, Dead Ringers, Young Guns and more are set to be resurrected...

Remember the rules of these stories, chum: don’t shoot the messenger.

Anyway, a rebrand of Morgan Creek Productions, to salute its 30th anniversary, has brought with it fresh plans to exploit its impressive catalogue of titles.

It’s had these plans before, but according to a new report, Morgan Creek is now accelerating things. As such, it looks as if various titles are bubbling to the top of the pile. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, for one, which is set to head back to the movies.

Co-founder of Morgan Creek, James G Robinson, said that he’s not looking for a remake of the original movies though, but “we wanted to do a mainstream theatrical production relaunch”. It’s hard to see Jim Carrey being too interested in reprising the title role, but stranger things have happened.

Why Was Sean Young’s Role So Minimal in Blade Runner 2049?

Sean Young is an American actress who has appeared in a number of well-known movies such as Dune, Wall Street, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. However, her single most famous role was the replicant named Rachael in Blade Runner, who managed to shake some of the titular character’s most fundamental beliefs. With that said, Young’s minimal involvement in Blade Runner 2049 has been noted, which stands out all the more because Harrison Ford returned to reprise his role as the ex-blade runner Rick Deckard.

Batman Forever: Jim Carrey Says Tommy Lee Jones Hated Him On Set

Batman Forever: Jim Carrey Says Tommy Lee Jones Hated Him On Set
Jim Carrey was recently on Norm MacDonald Live where he revealed that Tommy Lee Jones hated him when they were making Batman Forever together. Carrey was playing the Riddler while Jones was playing Two-Face in the Joel Schumacher directed movie. The movie was seen as divisive after the Tim Burton movies with Michael Keaton starring as Batman, though it was not universally hated like the next installment in the franchise, which has definitely not aged well, so don't bother going back for a nostalgic viewing. Anyway, while Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones were getting ready to do a scene together, Jones decided to tell Carrey about his true feelings.

Jim Carrey has talked about the subject before in the past, but the subject came up again when Norm MacDonald asked him about it. Carrey maintains that he still has nothing but the utmost respect for Tommy Lee Jones, but

Jim Carrey Reflects On Batman Forever Rivalry With Tommy Lee Jones

While it continues to be one of the more divisive films to feature the Caped Crusader since its release in 1995, the fact of the matter is that there are still many fans out there who love Batman Forever. Personally, I didn’t hate it, but I’d much rather watch one of the movies directed by either Tim Burton or Christopher Nolan because, quite frankly, it was hard to take much of WB’s third crack at the Bat seriously.

So, if you’re of the same opinion as I am, then odds are that you didn’t take too kindly to how the villains were portrayed. Not to take anything away from Jim Carrey and Tommy Lee Jones as actors, but their turns as the Riddler and Two-Face, respectively, were over the top, to say the least. In short, Carrey was playing Carrey and Jones apparently thought he was playing the Joker.

The Mask: extra nerdy facts about the 1990s Jim Carrey hit

Simon Brew Sep 26, 2017

The Mask started life as a horror movie - but it'd turn into the film that made Jim Carrey a flat-out movie star...

Summer 1994 was an unpredictable time at the box office for Hollywood studios. The year before, Jurassic Park had smashed box office records, but twelve months on, films such as The Flintstones and Beverly Hills Cop 3 were struggling to emulate its success. There were some solid hits: The Client, Maverick and True Lies, for instance. But there was also a sense of things changing. The big money of summer 1994 was being taken by sleeper successes such as Forrest Gump and Speed.

Jim Carrey to Star in New Showtime Comedy Series ‘Kidding’

Jim Carrey to Star in New Showtime Comedy Series ‘Kidding’
Jim Carrey will star in a new Showtime comedy series in his first regular television role since his days on the 1990’s sketch show “In Living Color,” Showtime announced Thursday.

The half-hour series is titled “Kidding,” in which Carrey will play Jeff, a.k.a. Mr. Pickles, an icon of children’s television, who also anchors a multimillion dollar branding empire. But when his family begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. Showtime has ordered a 10-episode first season.

The role further expands Carrey’s relationship with Showtime, as he currently executive produces the dramedy “I’m Dying Up Here,” which was recently renewed for a second season.

The project will also reunite Carrey with “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” director Michel Gondry, who will direct for “Kidding.” Dave Holstein–a writer and producer on both Showtime

The Mask was supposed to have been a horror movie

Simon Brew Jun 7, 2017

Comic book adaptation The Mask helped make Jim Carrey a star. But the original plan for the movie was a bit different...

After his breakthrough success in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, the film that really set Jim Carrey’s career ablaze was The Mask. The comic book adaptation was a film that New Line Cinema had initially modest expectations for in the summer of 1994. But soon, they realised they had a breakthrough movie star on their hands, with Carrey’s physicality also said to have shaved a fair bit off the special effects budget.
