Throw Back Thursday - The Mask

TBT - Did I ever tell you I worked with Jim Carrey in the movie The Mask? It was just a small role that ended up on the cutting room floor but it sure was great fun! I spent about 3 weeks on the set, made friends with everyone, cast and crew. The late great comedian Richard Jeni was such a card and always joking around, so was Jim.... never a dull moment! I remember Jim saying he was always on the verge of a panic attack every time the makeup artist put that big green mask on his head. The interior scenes in the "Coco Bongo Club" were all filmed on location at the Park View Plaza Hotel in downtown L.A. Circa Sept 1993. Ahh, good times!
