If you liked Jim Carrey playing a Rhode Island cop in Me Myself and Irene, then chances are you're more than ready for Jim Carrey as a Texas cop in I Love You Phillip Morris, coming to theatres February 2010.
Texas cop Steve Russell is living the life as a loving Christian husband and father, but all that changes when he discovers that he's gay. He decides he wants a new life, and turns to fraud and con jobs to get it for him. But this can only manage to get him so far--like so far into a Texas prison. When Russell meets Phillip Morris, a fellow inmate who somehow manages to be the love of Russell's life, he engages in a series of escape attempts designed to get him his chance at love. Check out the trailer!
"Gay cop" isn't exactly the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Jim Carrey either, but he's done stranger things. He's pulled off some strange roles before, but will this one be remembered in the same breath as his classics? Hit the comments section below and weigh in. Thanks for watching!
