Trailer Alert – Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond
Anyone like me who has seen and enjoyed Man on the Moon has to be interested in this new Netflix documentary featuring a ton of behind the scenes footage from the set. Andy Kaufman was such a unique and singular figure that it almost seemed impossible for someone to be able to portray him accurately, but Carrey’s turn as Kaufman was great. If you’re wondering how someone could transform into Kaufmann without losing a bit of themselves, you mustn’t wonder anymore, as Carrey seems to go into full detail about how he lost himself in this role. Kauffman was one of his comedic inspirations, so it’s easy to understand why he wanted to commit so fully to the part, but it clearly took a toll on him and everyone on set. Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond premieres on Netflix November 17th.
