The later '80s brought his additional roles but it wasn't until "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" in 1994 that his career in film took off. A more serious movie, "The Truman Show" (1998), earned him a Golden Globe. The following year, he took home another Golden Globe for his portrayal of the troubled comedian Andy Kaufman in the biopic "Man on the Moon."
