Jim Carrey is coming back to Hollywood with a new “Mr. Rogers” themed TV show.
Jim will be playing Mr. Pickles in the newest Showtime show “Kidding”. Kidding is a dramady about a children’s TV host whose life outside of the show is in shambles.
Jim was also just on the cover of the Hollywood Reporter and talked about his long absence from acting:
I just didn’t want to be in the business anymore. I didn’t like what was happening, the corporations taking over and all that. And maybe it’s because I felt pulled towards a different type of creative outlet and I really liked the control of painting.
He became an artist for many years with over 18 million Twitter followers who are devoted to his creations. A lot of art centred around political cartoons and most featured jabs at U.S. President Donald Trump.
I have always loved Jim Carrey’s movies growing up (Bruce Almighty and How The Grinch Stole Christmas were my favourite), so I will definitely be tuning in to this one! Kidding premieres on September 9th! Check out the trailer:
