Article about "The Truman Show"
19 Aug 1997    

From Entertainment Weekly Online (August 19, 1997):

In his first dramatic role since hitting it big, Carrey wants to prove his range is as stretchable as his face. The $20 million man (who took a paltry $12 million for this part) stars as Truman Burbank, an insurance salesman who's unaware that his entire life is, in fact, the world's most popular 24-hour-a-day television show--and that everyone from his mother (Taylor) to his wife (Linney) is just an actor. Says Linney of Carrey's new role: "You get to see a far more vulnerable person in a wild world." Carrey, according to producer Edward Feldman, took a little time to make the transition. "At first, Jim was continuing some of his normal behavior," he says. "The second week he did everything fresh." He also had a fresh costar; Harris' role (as the man who created Truman's show) was originally filled by Dennis Hopper, who lasted just one day of filming, then departed after differences with the director.
