    Jim Carrey Wants To Be 'Bruce Almighty' And/Or 'Dumb And Dumber' Again

    There's merit to the idea of stars aging and eventually losing sight of what their fans want.

He's already got another hot television series on the other side of the ocean in "Luther," he played Heimdall in the box office hit "Thor" and he's currently working with Ridley Scott again (he was in "Americ...
