JIM CARREY (Ace Ventura) follows his 1994 triple play of hits, "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective," "The Mask" and "Dumb and Dumber," and the recent blockbuster "Batman Forever," in which he starred as the Riddler, with a reprise of his Ace persona in "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls."

Carrey, a native of Canada, began his stand-up comedy career in Toronto at age 15. By age 19, he had moved to Los Angeles, where he soon became a regular at Mitzi Shore's Comedy Store. Soon after, Rodney Dangerfield, impressed with the young comic, hired him to open for Dangerfield on tour. Then, in 1982, Carrey made his television debut when he starred in the NBC comedy series "The Duck Factory." Although the show lasted only 13 weeks, it left an indelible impression of the actor's talents on the industry.

In 1984, Carrey starred with Lauren Hutton and Cleavon Little in the comedy feature "Once Bitten," followed by roles in Francis Ford Coppola's "Peggy Sue Got Married," Julien Temple's "Earth Girls Are Easy" and Clint Eastwood's "The Dead Pool." During this time, he was also cast as an original member of the Fox Network's weekly ensemble comedy series, "In Living Color," where he quickly became known for the range of outrageous and popular characters he created, including Fire Marshall Bill and Vera De Milo, the female bodybuilder. Carrey's Showtime comedy special, "Jim Carrey's Unnatural Act," premiered in November, 1991, to rave reviews. He also starred in a dramatic telefilm for the Fox Network entitled "Doing Time on Maple Drive," which was nominated for several Emmy Awards. In 1994, Carrey's no-holds-barred portrayal in "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" made that film the first breakout hit of the year and established Carrey as a major new star. He followed with the title role in the comic action-fantasy "The Mask," which became one of the biggest hits of last summer. Then, at year's end, Carrey completed his big-screen hat trick by starring opposite Jeff Daniels in the smash hit "Dumb and Dumber."

Ks record-breaking success has already continued into 1995 with this summer's blockbuster hit "Batman Forever." Next up for Carrey are starring roles in "Cable Guy" and "Liar, Liar," followed by a sequel to "The Mask."

IAN McNEICE (Fulton Greenwall), the versatile British character actor who has appeared in more than 80 film, television and stage productions, most recently starred with Hugh Grant in the critically acclaimed picture "The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain."
