Sharon Waxman‘s piece about the end of Used Guys is good, but there may be another reason for its demise: Jim Carrey has gone flakey, to put it mildly.

More alarmingly, he’s been babbling about his fascination with the number 23 — he’s actually making a movie by that name — and how he thinks it connects with everything in the world. Maybe he’s on to something, but maybe he’s become just a little too wingy for studios to roll the dice on. Especially since Fun With Dick and Jane did okay but not spectacular numbers.” — Journo pal
