The Bad Batch - Jim Carrey Character Details07 Sep 2016
By Eva Araújo (Web correspondent)
As we previous reported, "The Bad Batch" premiered yesterday at the Venice Film Festival, both the director Ana Lily Amirpour and the leading actress Suki Waterhouse were at the press conference for the movie that was streamed live.
The film opens with Suki Waterhouse playing Arlen, a young woman being escorted out of Texas via a criminal processing system and into dystopia where members of the "bad batch" are kept out. In the desert they must kill or be killed, or struggle to find refuge in a sort of safety zone called Comfort. Jim Carrey plays a mute vagabond/good Samaritan strolling around the desert wasteland with shopping cart in tow.
According to the information we now know about the movie, thanks to the people who have seen it, Jim speaks no words in the movie but saves the life of two characters in the process.
"He's kind of like the soul in this harsh environment," explained Amirpour. "In the script it was just a few scenes and there's no dialogue. You send a part like that to a big actor."
"You couldn't tell how important it was but he could tell, because I feel like in a way he is the hermit," she continued. "He's like the homeless guy you ignore at every street corner. It's like two sides of the same coin, being that famous, no one really sees who you are, and being that kind of poor homeless guy, no one really sees who you are. I feel like there's something really connected there."
We're so excited to know more about Jim character and why he was chosen to play it.
We at JCO will keep you updated as more news come.
