Jim Carrey’s new SHOWTIME character is a Buckeye

Can you image Jim Carrey as a Mr. Rogers-esc character?

If you can’t, take a peek at the trailer for his newest SHOWTIME show, “Kidding,” where his character is from our very own Columbus, Ohio (minute 1:38 in trailer).


While Carrey’s character Mr. Pickles may play Mr. Roger’s bff while the cameras are rolling, behind the scenes, his life is tearing at the seams (rhyming not intentional).

“Kidding” looks to be a raw, emotional depiction of a double life. And though the scene is a mere backdrop in the dark comedy, it’s always nice to get a little love from Hollywood!
