Thompson on Hollywood


Jim Carrey will at last appear on James Lipton's Bravo series Inside the Actors Studio on January 10. After seeing Carrey on TV's In Living Color, Lipton became a huge fan: "His was one of the first invitations I ever sent out,” he said.

But it took 17 years to get the response he was hoping for: "Jim’s extremely shy. It was a marathon getting him on. It wasn’t that he didn’t want to do it — he just didn’t have the courage.” He finally accepted when Lipton ran into him and fellow Actors Studio guest Bradley Cooper on the set of the film Mr. Popper’s Penguins. "I specialize in shy!" Lipton told him.

Carrey is battling for a comeback. His gay comedy I Love You Philip Morris nabbed a surprise Writers Guild nomination, and Carrey hosts Saturday Night Live this weekend. Watch for good ratings: audiences love Carrey in funny man mode.

Here's EW's exclusive Inside the Actors Studio clip.

    Let's see if Jim Carrey can outdo Anne Hathaway's excellent SNL ( the best in years) hosting gig last November. Jim is talented , but I loathe when he goes over-the-top and weakens his performance.
