I don't devalue comedy as compared to drama. Not one bit.
There's always an element of fear that you need to work a lot until people get sick and tired of you or finally figure out that you're a fraud after all!
I have a lot of nervous energy. Work is my best way of channelling that into something productive unless I want to wind up assaulting the postman or gardener.
I would like to do more dramas when I find a good role that will allow me to politely upset people's expectations of me as a comic actor.
The failure of The Cable Guy impacted my career. I had to start writing and acting again.
Jim Carrey, a comic genius, has a harder time overcoming the public's desire for him to be funny simply because he's so good at it.
