James Eugene Cary (born January 17, 1962) is a Canadian-American actor, comedian, writer, and artist.

Cary first gained fame in America in 1990 after landing a recurring role in the sketch comedy television series In Living Color.

His first leading roles in motion pictures were with Ace Ventura: Pet Detective (1994), Dumb and Dumber (1994), The Mask (1994), and Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (1995), as well as the lead role in Liar Liar (1995).

He came to fame as a leading actor in The Truman Show (1998) and Man on the Moon (1999), earning him the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor. He gained more attention in the 2000s for his portrayal of the Grinch in How the Grinch Stole Christmas and as part of Bruce Almighty (2003), The Spotless Mind (2004), for which he was nominated for the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, Lemony Snicket. (2008), Yes Man (2008), Horton Hears a Who! Carol and A Christmas Carol (2009). He appeared in Mr. Popper's Penguins (2011), The Amazing Burt Wonderstone (2013), Kick-Ass 2 (2013), and reprised his role as Lloyd Christmas in Dumb and Dumber to (2014).

Since 2018, he has portrayed Jeff Piccirillo in the Showtime series Kidding, and he's likely to play Dr.Robotnik in the live action Sonic the Hedgehog (2020) film.

Early life

Cary was born in the Toronto suburb of Newmarket, Ontario, Canada, to Kathleen (née Oram), a homemaker, and Percy Carney, a musician and accountant. He was raised as a Roman Catholic and has three older siblings, John, Patricia, and Rita. His mother was of French, Irish, and Scottish descent, and his father was of French-Canadian ancestry; the family's ancestral surname was Carré.

He began making faces in front of a mirror and discovered a gift for doing impressions at age eight. Cary wrote a letter to Carol Burnett of the Carol Burnett Show pointing out that he was already a master of images and should be considered for a presence on the show; he was ecstatic when he received a form letter back. Monty Python's Flying Circus, whose television version of Monty Python's Flying Circus, appeared on Monty Python's Best Bits (Mostly) in 2014 and recalled the effect on Ernest Scribbler (played by Michael Palin) who yelled himself to death in his "The Funniest Joke in the World" sketch. "You'll know why immediately: Palin's appearance is uncannily Carinesque," Radio Times reports.

Cary spent his youth in Scarborough, Ontario, part of Metropolitan Toronto, where he attended Blessed Trinity Catholic Elementary School in North York. Jim and his family later moved to Burlington, Ontario, where they would spend eight years; Jim attended Aldershot High School when he was there. When teenage Jim and his brother spent months in a tent on the Lake Ontario shore in Lincoln, Ontario, he became homeless and lived together in a Volkswagen van some time later. The family was struggling financially, but when his father began working in the accounting department at the Titan Wheels tire factory in Scarborough, their situation began improving. In addition, the family, mainly teenage sons Jim and John, will work as janitors and security guards at the tire factory, working eight-hour shifts from 6 p.m. to the next morning. Jim started attending Agincourt Collegiate Institute before dropping out of school on his sixteenth birthday. He began to perform comedy in downtown Toronto while still working at the factory.

"If my show business career hadn't turned out, I would probably be living today in Hamilton, Ontario, at the Dofasco steel mill," Cary said in a 2007 Hamilton Spectator interview. As a young man, he could see the steel mills around Burlington Bay and often thought that this was "where the great jobs were located."

Personal life

Cary suffers from depression, and she has taken Prozac to treat the signs. He has confirmed that he no longer takes drugs or stimulants, including coffee.

Cary has also been diagnosed with ADHD. "He was always a restless child and told the class that he would finish his assignments quickly and then begin to disrupt the other students."

He gained citizenship in October 2004 and remains a dual citizen of the United States and his native Canada.

Jim Cary dated singer Linda Ronstadt for eight months in 1983. Cary has been married twice before. Melissa Womer, a former actress and waitress, married on March 28, 1987, was his first marriage. Jane Erin Cary, the couple's daughter, was born on September 6, 1987. Jane was a 2012 contestant on American Idol. In 1995, Cary and Womer were divorced.

Cary married Lauren Holly, a Dumb and Dumber co-star, on September 23, 1996; the relationship lasted less than a year. Cary was involved with Me, Myself, and Irene co-star Renée Zellweger from 1999 to 2000. In 2002, January Jones began a relationship with Cary. In 2005, Cary first encountered model and actress Jenny McCarthy and revealed their friendship in June 2006. The two people's friendship in April 2010 came to an end. McCarthy and McCarthy remained close friends in October 2010.

Cathriona White, a makeup artist from County Tipperary, Ireland, met Carthriona White in 2012. They lived between 2012 and 2015. White was discovered dead from a prescription drug overdose on September 28, 2015, and the LA County Medical Examiner declared it a suicide. At her funeral in Cappawhite, County Tipperary, Ireland, Carlbearer Carlbearer at her funeral.

In January 2019, Cary and his partner Ginger Gonzaga attended the Golden Globes 2019 Party together. After less than a year of dating, the couple split.

Cathriona White, the ex-girlfriend of Carthon's, married Mark Burton in 2013. Burton filed a wrongful death case against Carrie on September 19, arguing that he used his "immense wealth and celebrity" to illicitly obtain and sell prescription drugs involved in White's death. The following day, Cary released a statement:

Brigid Sweetman, White's mother, brought a wrongful death case against Carrie in October 2016. Sweetman's attorney claims that Cary tested positive for hepatitis A, HSV (Herpes) I and II, and chlamydia, but then hid the findings from White and had unprotected sex with her. "These records reveal that Jim Cary has lied to the media, the public, and the court," Sweetman said later. Cary is now known for what he is: a spoiled Hollywood celebrity who claims he can say something and fool people simply for being famous."

Both cases were dismissed on January 25, 2018, and both counsels announced that no further court hearings would be launched.

Cary wrote an essay in 2009 disputing the benefits of vaccination for The Huffington Post. Cary led a "Green Our Vaccines" protest in Washington, D.C., to demand that "too many vaccines" be removed from children's vaccinations, many of which are harmful," says the campaign leader Jenny McCarthy. David Gorski, an American surgical oncologist on Science-Based Medicine's blog, was chastised for being anti-vaccina and not "pro-safe vaccine," and Steven Parker on the WebMD website for being "irresponsible."

Cary called California Governor Jerry Brown a "corporate fascist" who was "poisoning" children by enforcing the vaccination requirements on July 1, 2015. The legislation discouraged religious and philosophical explanations for exemption from vaccinations. Arthur Caplan, the head of the Division of Medical Ethics at New York University, and Jeffrey Kluger, senior writer at Time, were chastised for his anti-vaccination remarks as "angry, dense, and immune to reason."

Cary believes in and promotes the so-called "law of attraction." In an interview with Oprah Winfrey on February 17, he revealed that as a struggling actor he'd use visualization techniques to get jobs. He also stated that he visualized a $10 million check for "acting services rendered" and deposited the check in his wallet, and seven years later, he received a $10 million check for his work with Dumb and Dumber.

Carnetal Meditation is a form of meditation.

Since August 2017, Cary has released his own political cartoon drawings, including controversial renditions of then-White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and then-President Donald Trump. On March 31, 2019, he sparked international interest by drawing drawing blaming Benito Mussolini's tragic death with Clara Petacci; Mussolini's granddaughter Alessandra insulted him on Twitter, calling him "a tard" and his artworks "dirty paper." IndigNation, the Maccarone Gallery in Los Angeles's opening on October 23, 2018, featured 108 pen-and-ink drawings from Cary's Twitter feed from 2016 to 2018.

Cary revealed in 2017 that he had been painting for the past six years. In 2011, he exhibited Nothing to See Here in an art show at the Heather James Fine Art Gallery in Palm Springs. In 2017, Cary produced "I Needed Color," which depicted him in his studio. Cary revealed in April 2022 that he had minted his first art NFT via the NFT platform SuperRare. The NFT is based on a painting called Sunflower and is accompanied by the original voiceover.

Jim Carrey Career

Career

In 1977, Cary's first stand-up comedy experience took place alongside his father, who was attempting to help him put together a stage performance, prompting him to debut at the newly opened Yuk Yuk Yuk Yuk Yuk's comedy club, which is located one-night-a-week out of downtown Toronto's basement. Cary had his outfit, a polyester leisure suit, chosen by his mother, who said, "that's how they dress on The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast." The traditional impersonations of pubescent Cartagena were smuggish, proving unsuitable for a club with a raunchy comedic sensibility and raising questions about his potential as a professional entertainer. Yuk Yuk's owner Mark Breslin described it as "poor Rich Little" on two decades, recalling Cary's stand-up debut. His family's financial challenges made it impossible for them to promote Cary's show business aspirations.

As the family's financial situation improved, they purchased a new home in Jackson's Point. Cary returned to the stage in 1979 with a more polished show that culminated in his first paid gig: a 20-minute spot at Scarborough's Hay Loft club on Highway 48 for a reported Can$20 reward on a bill with Mother of Pearl performer The Pig and Whistle. He soon faced his fears and returned downtown to the site of his debacle two years ago—Yuk Yuk's that had in the meantime relocated to a permanent location on Bay Street in the fashionable Yorkville district. The seventeen-year-old went from open-mic nights to regular paid performances in a short period of time, boosting his image in the process.

Cary tried to break into sketch comedy by auditioning to be a cast member for NBC's Saturday Night Live's 1980-81 season. Cary ended up not being selected by the show's new executive producer Jean Doumanian, who instead selected thirty-one-year-old Charles Rocket. Cary, a decade ago, and October 2014, the show will be hosted in May 1996, January 2011, and October 2014. After not being able to be on Saturday Night Live, Cargo-inspired bits on The All-Night Show, an overnight program on the CFMT-TV channel branded as Multilingual Television (MTV).

In February 1981, the nineteen-year-old Carrie boy was scheduled as the opening act for the rock band Goddo in Barrie's city and neighboring towns; the audience booed him offstage and he refused to return for the second night. However, on the front page of the Toronto Star, a review of one of Cary's spots, as well as a large photo of Sammy Davis Jr. performing a stage impression of him appeared on the front page of its entertainment section with writer Bruce Blackadar raving about "a true star coming to life." Save for a brief mention in the Barrie Examiner, it was the first time Cary's mainstream media coverage and lauding in one of Canada's top-circulation dailies raised hopes for his impressionist stand-up performance throughout the region. In April 1981, he appeared in an episode of the televised stand-up comedy An Evening at the Improv. He landed one of the major roles in Introducing... Janet, a made-for-TV film that premiered on CBC in September 1981, attracting more than a million viewers for the first time in Canada that summer. Tony Maroni, a struggling impressionist comedian, was Cary's first acting role. The CBC's promotional video for the film had similarly high viewership in the country; by the time the film's CBC run of repeats came to an end, it was renamed to Rubberface in order to capitalize on the comedian's by then-established fame for making elaborate contortionist impressions. Carney began appearing in more comedy clubs in the United States, after comedian Rodney Dangerfield, who then agreed to open his tour shows at Carne. The Toronto Star, a well-known comedian in Canada, told Cary about a United States work permit despite being outraged by Johnny Carson's Tonight Show, largely due to his reputation from Canada.

Cary was reportedly seen in the early 1980s as part of the program's audition process for stand-up comedy spots. Cary, on the other hand, was advised to further hone his act, so he returned home to the Toronto area, where he had already established a large following. Carney Dangerfield, Rodney Dangerfield's opening act, appeared at several touring venues around North America, including two sold-out shows at Massey Hall.

Cary decided to leave Hollywood in early 1983, where he began regularly performing at The Comedy Store. Getting to the point. After being booked for a stand-up set on the highly rated late night show, getting to the Tonight Show became his immediate career aim, and by spring 1983, he appeared to have succeeded. However, he was unbooked at The Improv due to a lukewarm club set at The Improv. Despite being unable to imitate his fame in Los Angeles, Cary continued to be a big hit in Toronto, where he returned to appear at the short-lived B.B. in late April 1983. On three nights in a row, Magoon's theatrical venue on Bloor Street had been on show. Although in town, CTV's flagship newsmagazine program W5 did a segment on Carnage that aired nationally in Canada. He returned to Los Angeles, within months, to appear on The Duck Factory, a sitcom being produced for NBC, and, in late November 1983, he had to debut his impressionist act on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, which was to debut nationally on the same network in the United States. In the meantime, he was in charge of a supporting role in the Warner Bros. comedy series Finders Keepers, which shot in Alberta, Canada, during the late summer 1983. Elvis Presley, Leonid Brezhnev, Jack Nicholson, Bruce Dern, Clint Eastwood, Michael Landon, James Dean, E.T. For his Tonight Show appearance, Jeanette de Bruton went through his most famous sketches—Elvis Presley, Leonid Brezhnev, Bruce Dern, Jack Nicholson, Bruce Dern, Clint Eastwood, 241, E.T. In rapid succession, Extra-Terrestrial Charles Nelson Reilly, characters from My Three Sons, and Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy appear as Charles Nelson Reilly, Extraordinary Tyresting, Charles Nelson Reilly, characters from My Three Sons, and Miss Piggy. The impressionist comedian was not waved over by the host to join him on the couch after finishing his set, although Carson's approving was apparently unimpressed. Cary returned to Toronto once more for a publicized New Years' Eve performance at the Royal York Hotel's Imperial Room at the Imperial Room at the end of 1983.

The Duck Factory's debut in April 1984 was originally scheduled to debut in January 1984, airing in Cheers and Hill Street Blues on Thursdays at 9:30 p.m. Cary took up hosting the 1984 U-Know Awards ceremony in Toronto at the Royal York Hotel's Ballroom in the same month. The Duck Factory had already cancelled the network by the time he appeared on NBC's Late Night with David Letterman in late July 1984; Cary went back to touring with his impressionist act, including often opening for Rodney Dangerfield.

Cary was first noticed doing stand-up by producer Samuel Goldwyn Jr. and invited to audition for a teen horror sex comedy being produced by The Samuel Goldwyn Company in early 1985. Cary would continue filming; in 1985, he shot a supporting role in Francis Ford Coppola's Peggy Sue Got Married, which then went into a lengthy post-production process. In parallel, he decided to try out for Saturday Night Live again, this time ahead of the show's 1985-86 season being planned by returning executive producer Lorne Michaels, who was looking to recruit an all-new cast. Twenty-three-year-old Carman was denied a second time from appearing on television, with a new generation of "post-nuclear Elvis" — a combination of Henry Fonda from On Golden Pond—in front of executive producer Michaels, who refused to watch the show's producers and senior writers Al Franken, Tom Davis, and Jim Downey deciding that Michaels would not like it. Unlike his previous SNL rejection, Cary now had a film career to fall back on in lieu of his impressionist stand-up act; Once Bitten was released in mid-November 1985, but it turned out to be a modest box-office hit despite receiving poor feedback.

Cary auditioned for SNL's forthcoming season, his third attempt at being on the ensemble sketch comedy tour, with impressions. Lorne Michaels, the show's executive producer, was finally able to appear in a Burbank studio, with returning cast members Dennis Miller, Jon Lovitz, and Nora Dunn all watching the audition. Dana Carvey and Phil Hartman, two of whom had been hired, were among the group of hopefuls auditioning alongside Carvey and Phil Hartman, both of whom had been accepted.

Cary, who knew that doing only impressions was going to be a career demise, set out to produce a new live comedy act. He began denying brand celebrity appearances and adding observational and character humour to his comedic repertoire, much to his dissatisfaction with live audiences that came to watch him perform impressions.

Cary appeared on In Living Color from 1990 to 1994. Although the film was short lived, the success of this series helped him land his first few major film roles.

Cary was the lead role in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, which was released in February 1994 and went on to gross $72 million in the United States and Canada. Morgan Creek Productions paid him $5 million to revive his role as Ace Ventura and New Line Cinema's before the film's debut, The Mask, which was supposed to be another hit, paid him $7 million to produce a sequel to The Mask, a nearly tenfold increase in Ace Ventura's salary. The Mask, which was launched in July 1994, brought $31 million worldwide, and Dumb and Dumber, which was released in December 1994, was another commercial success, grossing over $270 million globally. Cary received his first Golden Globe Award for his role in The Mask, as well as second second on Quigley's Top Ten Money Making Stars Poll, behind Tom Hanks.

In the Joel Schumacher-directed superhero film Batman Forever (1995), Cary portrayed the Batman villain, the Riddler. The film received mixed feedback, but it was a box office hit. Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, which was also published in 1995, has revived his role as Ace Ventura. It was well-received by the public, but not so well by critics. With a $40 million opening weekend, it was a big box-office success, with $212 million worldwide in comparison to breaking records.

In 1996, Cary became the first actor to be paid $20 million for his next film, The Cable Guy. Ben Stiller's film, which was directed by Matthew Broderick, was a satirical black comedy in which Cary played a numbly, menacing cable TV installer who invaded the lives of one of his clients. The role was a change from the "hapless, hyper, overconfident" characters he had been introduced to. However, most commentators did not agree with Cary's change of tone from previous films, many of whom were outraged by the film's change of tone. Cary appeared in Jerry Cantrell's "Leave Me Alone" music video. Despite the reports, The Cable Guy made $102 million worldwide.

He resurfaced with Liar Liar (1997), portraying Fletcher Reede, an unethical lawyer who was unable to lie by his teenage son's birthday wish. Cary was lauded for his work, receiving his second Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor. "Mr. Cary finally appears in a simple comic car, and the results are much more exciting and amusing than this mundane stuff should have allowed," Janet Maslin of The New York Times wrote.

Truman Burbank, the seriocomic role of Truman Burbank in the satirical comedy-drama film The Truman Show (1998), he took a pay cut the following year. The film received acclaim in the United States and helped Carrie Carry attain international prominence, causing many to believe he would be nominated for an Academy Award. He was nominated for the Best Actor in a Motion Picture Drama at the Truman Show. The Truman Show was a commercial success, grossing $264 million worldwide against a budget of $60 million. "The film "allows Carny to move away from broad comedies," a Film4 analyst said, adding that it was "a comedic and brilliant satire."

Cary appeared on Garry Shandling's last episode as a fictionalized version of himself, in which he deliberately cut into Shandling's character. Cary was the leading role in Man on the Moon in 1999. Andy Kaufman drew critical acclaim and was awarded his second Golden Globe in a row. In addition, he received his first Screen Actor Guild Award nomination for Best Actor.

Cary reteamed with the Farley brothers, who had previously directed him in Dumb and Dumber, for the black comedy film Me, Myself & Irene, which received mixed reviews but not acclaim, but it was still a hit in the box office. Cary portrayed state trooper Charlie Baileygates, who has many personalities and romances, as the woman portrayed by Renée Zellweger. Cary starred in the second highest-grossing Christmas film of all time, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, portraying the title character, which earned him both praise and condemnation from critics alongside a Golden Globe nomination.

In Tom Shadyac's international hit comedy Bruce Almighty (2003), Cary starred Jennifer Aniston and Morgan Freeman in his next feature film. When the deity decides to take a break, Cary played a television newsman who unexpectedly accepts God's omnipotent abilities. On release, the film received mixed reviews, but it eventually became a financial success, grossing over $484 million around the world, and hitting its seventeenth highest-grossing live action comedy of all time.

Cary appeared in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind in 2004. On its debut, the film received critical acclaim. In comparison to his co-star Kate Winslet's performance, critics applauded Carny's portrayal of Joel Barish. Cary's performance, according to CNN's reviewer Paul Clinton, was the actor's "most mature and sharply focused appearance ever." Cary received his second Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Actor and his first BAFTA Award nomination for Best Actor.

Cary's next appearance was in the 2004 black comedy fantasy film Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, which was based on the children's novels of the same name. The film was well received by viewers; Desson Thomson of The Washington Post wrote about Cary's tribute to Count Olaf's character.

Cary was inducted into the Canadian Walk of Fame in the same year. Cary appeared in the 2005 revival of Fun with Dick and Jane with Tea Leoni, grossing $200 million on a profit of $100 million.

Cary was reunited with Joel Schumacher, creator of Batman Forever, in 2007, a psychological thriller starring Virginia Madsen and Danny Huston. Cary plays a man who becomes obsessed with the number 23, following the discovery of a book about a man with the same obsession. Critics also blasted the film. Cary played Horton Hears a Who during the following year. (2008). Horton the Elephant, Cary's character in the CGI-animated film, was a box office hit, grossing over $290 million worldwide.

Cary is back for live-action comedy, this time as the lead in Yes Man, starring Zooey Deschanel and Bradley Cooper (also 2008). Cary played a man who enrolls in a self-help program that teaches him to say yes to everything. "Yes Man is fine as far as Jim Carrick comedies go, but it's even better as a love tale that just happens to make you laugh," Rene Rodriquez of The Miami Herald said. The film had a good showing at the box office, grossing $225 million worldwide.

Cary has been involved in Glenn Ficarra and John Requa's I Love You Phillip Morris, premiering in January 2009 at the Sundance Film Festival before being released in February 2010. Steven Jay Russell, a con artist, imposter, and multiple jail escapee who falls in love with his fellow prisoner Phillip Morris (played by Ewan McGregor). The film received mainly critical feedback, with Damon Wise of The Times outing it out of five, saying, "I Love You Phillip Morris is an extraordinary film that serves as a reminder of how good Caribou is when he isn't tied to a largely male audience pleaser." His comedic timing is as good as ever."

Cary portrayed multiple characters in Disney's 3D animated adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic Christmas Carol, A Christmas Carol (2009), voicing Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Robin Wright Penn, Bob Hoskins, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman, and Cary Elwes were all cast members of the film, directed by Robert Zemeckis. The film received good feedback and was a financial success. Cary was selected in Mr. Popper's Penguins (2011), playing Tom Popper Jr., a realtor who becomes the caretaker of a family of penguins. Upon its launch, the film received a mixed reception.

In the Don Scardino-directed comedy film The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (2013), he appeared alongside former co-star Steve Carell. Steve Gray played Steve Gray, a volatile street magician who overshadows Burt Wonderstone, the former magician's star (played by Carell). The film was released in March 2013 to mixed reviews and disappointed at the box office, grossing just over $27 million on a $30 million budget.

He appeared in Kick-Ass 2 (also 2013) as Colonel Stars and Stripes about the same time. Two months before the film's debut, he withdrew his help for the film. "Now in all fair conscience, I cannot accept this degree of violence," he posted on Twitter.

Cary and Jeff Daniels will return for a Dumb and Dumber sequel, according to Peter Farley, with the Farley brothers directing and planning, with a planned debut of September 2012. Cary's rep said in June that the comedian regretted the venture because the comedian thought New Line and Warner Bros. were uninterested in it.

However, on 1 October 2012, Yahoo!

The show's The Yo Show announced that the script was complete and that the original actors, Cary and Daniels, would be reprising their roles.' One of the characters had sired a child and wanted to find them to get a kidney. In November 2014, Dumb and Dumber To was released.

Cary revealed in March 2013 that he had written How Roland Rolls, about a terrified wave named Roland. "It's kind of a metaphysical children's tale," the author characterized it as "a lot of heavy stuff in a really childish way." Cary self-published the book, which was released in September 2013.

Cary released a parody music video with Eels from Funny or Die on March 25, 2013, with Cary replacing Mark Oliver Everett on vocals. The song and video, titled "Cold Dead Hand" and staged as a musical act during Hee Haw's variety show "Hee Haw," mocks American gun culture, and in particular former NRA spokesperson Charlton Heston, appeared on the NRA's Variety Show.

In May 2014, Cary delivered the commencement address at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, and was given an honorary doctorate for his contributions as a comedian, writer, and philanthropist.

Cary was a producer on Rubble Kings, a 2015 documentary film that depicts events leading up to and after the Hoe Avenue peace meeting.

Cary was honoured by Canada Post on August 29, 2014, with his portrait on it.

The drama I'm Dying Up Here, which Cary acted as the executive producer, debuted in June 2017. Cary's own experience is included in the series, which chronicles a group of stand-up comedians from 1970s Los Angeles. Cary and director Michel Gondry reunited in a comedy series named Kidding in September of this year. Catherine Keener would appear opposite Carney in Kidding by the end of 2017.

In 2017, Cary was also the subject of two documentaries. In the summer, the first, a short story about his lifelong love of art, was published online. Jim & Andy: Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond — A Very Special, Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton premiered at The Venice Film Festival and was later picked up by Netflix later this year. The film chronicles Man on the Moon's behind-the-scenes drama, although Andy Kaufman's character never broke character as Andy Kaufman. It features footage that was shot for the film's electronic press kit but then decided that it was too damaging.

In a film version of the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series, Cary was depicted as Dr. Robotnik, the main antagonist of the Sonic the Hedgehog video game series. The film was released in February 2020 to rave reviews. Robotnik's portrayal by Cary was lauded by some, with some describing it as one of his best performances in years. Cary made his return to Sonic the Hedgehog 2, which grossed $72 million at the US box office in its first weekend, giving Cary the best opening of his career to date.

Memoirs and Misinformation were published in 2020 by Caryne and Misinformation. It was announced in September that Carney would play presidential nominee Joe Biden on the 46th season of Saturday Night Live, taking over the roles of Jason Sudeikis, Woody Harrelson, and John Mulaney. However, Cary's high-energy comedy style clashed with Biden's low-key persona, creating an imitation that lacked authenticity and failed to impress viewers and critics. Carynny revealed on Saturday Night Live that he would not return from playing Biden, citing that he had a six-week contract. During the cold open of Kristen Wiig's episode hosted by Ian Moffat, Cast Member Alex Moffat joined Cary in portraying Biden.

On January 7, 2022, Cary appeared as the narrator of The Weeknd album Dawn FM.

Cary revealed in April 2022 that he was considering leaving the film industry but, "I have enough." I've done enough. I am enough." When asked if he would ever return, he replied, "It depends." If the angels write something in gold ink that I think would be extremely important to people to see, I'd continue down the road, but I'm taking a break."
