No. 24: Walter Getz in "Peggy Sue Got Married"
In the 1986 fantasy drama "Peggy Sue Got Married," Jim Carrey co-stars as Walter Getz, a close friend of Peggy Sue's boyfriend, Charlie (played by Nicolas Cage, right), and member of their high school singing quartet. The film, about a woman who faints at her high school reunion and wakes up in the past during her senior year, revolves around Peggy Sue and Charlie, giving Walter only a few comedic scenes. While Walter made us laugh, he just didn't have enough screen time, making the character come in last place on our list.

The movie also stars Jennifer Aniston as Bruce's longtime girlfriend, Grace.
No. 6: Steven Russell in "I Love You Phillip Morris"
In the 2009 comedy-crime biography "I Love You Phillip Morris," Jim Carrey stars as Steven Russell, a married cop who finds the courage to come out as a gay man after a car accident. According to Steven, "being gay was expensive," therefore, he turned to crime to finance his new lifestyle. Although based on a true story, it gave Jim the familiar space to portray the type of manic, exuberant characters he's known for while also allowing him to step into new acting territory with gusto. The film co-stars Ewan McGregor as Steven's prison lover, Phillip Morris.
No. 5: Count Olaf in "Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events"

No. 4: Joel Barish in "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"
Jim Carrey broke the mold when he starred as Joel Barish in the 2004 romantic sci-fi drama "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind." The film centers on two eclectic young lovers, Joel and Clementine (played by Kate Winslet), who break up but find their separation is too painful to bear. Instead of coping with their sadness, they decide to have their memories of each other erased, which leads to interesting complications in their real lives. Jim earned a Golden Globe nomination for his performance.
No. 3: The Grinch in "How The Grinch Stole Christmas"
Jim Carrey brought a popular children's tale to life in the 2000 fantasy-comedy "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." The film is a fantastic remake of the Dr. Seuss story of a greedy, angry Grinch who, in an attempt to ruin Christmas for the Whos, discovers his heart isn't as cold and unfeeling as he originally thought. Jim's take on the Grinch set the standard for live-action remakes of animated classics and earned him a Golden Globe nomination.
No. 2: Andy Kaufman in "Man on the Moon"

No. 1: Truman Burbank in "The Truman Show"
Jim Carrey's performance as Truman Burbank in "The Truman Show" is the best of his career. The film, about an insurance salesman who discovers his entire life is actually one big televised show and all the people he knows and loves are merely actors, wasn't just entertaining — it caused us all to question the nature of reality and wonder (even privately) if we're all merely unknown entertainers on someone's favorite TV show. Jim won his first Golden Globe Award for the performance as well as an MTV Movie Award for best male performance.
