I was going to call this “Carrey plays against type” but given his fondness for melodramas in recent years, I guess this is his type now. A good cause and Hollywood-friendly insofar as U.S. involvement with Burma is minimal so Suu Kyi’s supporters can’t be accused of doing the Devil’s bidding. Given that she’s a symbol for popular rule thwarted by dictatorship, this is as close as we’re going to get to a celeb publicly endorsing a plank of Bush’s foreign policy.

He really does need to do something about the hair, though.
