Jim Carrey is one of those who are great in very small doses but become obnoxious given enough time.

No need to worry. Carrey will play Q similar to his Ace Ventura character, with the same hairdo. He will even do Shatner & Scotty imitations.

IMO, Jim Carrey peaked in about 1985.

Re: Star Trek III - The [Speculation Begins] (Spoilers)

Jim Carrey was pretty good in the Ace Ventura movies...



but, bringing this back on topic, I wouldn't want to see him in Trek, simply because I don't know if he can play a serious role to save his life. (At least Bruce Campbell did that episode of Homicide: Life on the Street, so we know *he* can play it straight.)

The Truman Show and Man on the Moon don't count? Aside from wining a Golden Glob for each, most people thought he deserved an Oscar nod for the later.

His performances in Eternal Sunshine..., The Majestic, and The Number 23 were all pretty good too.

And I would consider them all to be "serious."

...And certainly more palatable than his comedic routine.

^ Actually that just might work, now that I think about it...Harry is a comic character, after all.

How about Robin Williams as Harry?

Well one international draw might be Tom Hanks, the supposed Trekkie.
