He might not be making movies currently, but there's a lot of reason to be excited for what Jim Carrey is doing next. And while the idea of him playing a beloved kids TV presenter losing his mind might sound a little... overdone in his world, Kidding should be far more complex than that.
It's directed by Michel Gondry for a start, and the way Showtime boss David Nevins talks about it makes it sound brilliant:
“No one inhabits a character like Jim Carrey, and this role – which is like watching Humpty Dumpty after the fall – is going to leave television audiences wondering how they went so long without him. With his ‘Eternal Sunshine’ partner Michel Gondry on board to direct, we are on our way to a magnetic, volcanic and emotional viewing experience.”
