The film was about the life of the late comedian Andy Kaufman that I had a small role in playing, shock, as a wrestling announcer. Jerry Lawler and the real Andy Kaufman became great friends during their wrestling rivalry in Memphis that culminated with Lawler slapping the fire out of Kaufman on the David Letterman Show. During the filming of this movie, Carrey refused to answer to his own name and insisted he be called “Andy” or “Mr. Kaufman” during the entire filming of the movie even by the cast and crew. Famed director Milos Foreman, an Oscar winner, even had to call Carrey “Andy”. Carrey stayed “in character” for the entire filming of this movie. Jim Carrey is a hugely talented performer but one strange dude. I will share some Jim Carrey stories with you in the future.(There’s some “out there” Courtney Love stories from that experience too.) I saw the movie again just the other day on cable.
