Jim Carrey has signed with Rick Yorn’s LBI Entertainment, according to three individuals with knowledge of the actor’s plans. Carrey is already represented by WME.
Yorn represents an impressive list of movie stars, including Jonah Hill, Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel and DiCaprio. The strength of his client list stands out in particular because it is such a small firm. To remedy that, Yorn has hired Thor Bradwell and Chris Donnelly from WME, bringing on rising stars like Diana Agron, as well as Martin Scorsese. He also hired former independent agent Ilene Feldman.
Carrey, who left previous managers Jimmy Miller and Eric Gold at Mosaic in October, only makes that list stronger. Carrey spent more than a decade as one of the most popular and successful comedians in the world. The star of “Dumb & Dumber” and “Ace Ventura” has since delivered strong dramatic turns in “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “I Love You, Phillip Morris” while also appearing in comedies such as “Yes Man” and “The Incredible Burt Wunderstone.”
He just reprised his role as Lloyd in a sequel to “Dumb and Dumber,” which opens in November. We also hear Oliver Stone has signed with Yorn, but Stone is traveling in China and thus his publicist could not track him down.
