Andy Kaufman was a nontraditional comedian, assuming "comedian" is the best way to describe his unusual methods.
In the 1999 film, Man on the Moon, Jim Carrey decided to also go down a rocky path in order to discover comic greatness.
While filming the movie, Carrey took method acting to a new level. The footage has been locked up for twenty years because the studios thought it made the actor look crazy and unstable.
Now, that footage is coming to Netflix.
