Netflix Goes Inside Jim Carrey's Portrayal of Andy Kaufman

Jim Carrey IS Andy Kaufman.

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.
