It's always great to see Canadian representation in the entertainment industry and there are quite a few actors from big and small towns in Canada who've done that. Jim Carrey, who hails from Newmarket, Ontario, has definitely had a huge impact on Hollywood and is one of Canada's best actors. He's been on TV screens since the early 80s, and the 57-year-old recently slowed down his movie and TV roles. But now, Jim Carrey's Sonic The Hedgehog trailer made Twitter users so happy to see his film comeback.
Carrey will play the role of Dr. Ivo Robotnik in the 2020 Sonic The Hedgehog movie.
The original trailer for the film was released earlier this year but it immediately got backlash from people who didn't think the CGI version of Sonic looked anything like his classic cartoon character.
Now they redesigned what Sonic looks like and gave us an updated trailer, but Carrey's character totally stole the show on Twitter.
"Jim Carrey" is currently the number 1 trending topic in Canada, and people only have good things to say about his upcoming film.
One user wrote, "god I almost forgot Jim Carrey is about to give us the most amazing performance of his life as dr robotinic" which is a pretty bold statement but likely true, too.
Another user wrote that they "Only wanna see this for Jim Carrey" in response to Paramount Pictures' tweet with the official trailer.

Carrey's last film role was in 2016 when he starred as Tadek in Dark Crimes. That same year, he was also in The Bad Batch opposite fellow Canadian, Keanu Reeves.
And before that, Carrey starred in Dumb and Dumber To, which was a sequel to his and Jeff Daniels' original 1994 classic.
Everyone's opinions vary on what Carrey's best film role was, but it has been quite a while since he gave us an incredibly hilarious performance.
And Twitter thinks his Sonic The Hedgehog role just might satisfy us for a while.
