My friends and I are going to play a rather Gonzo campaign.

We're all going to be celebrities as D&D characters.

My character is Jim Carrey, and his power is to be different characters he has played in movies, what I need help is associating classes with the character.
1) Ace Ventura - Druid; Ranger
2) The Mask
3) The Riddler
4) Fire Marshall Bill from In Living Color
5) Lloyd from Dumb & Dumber
6) Bruce Almighty

If you feel I have forgotten any iconic characters (like Cable Guy), let me know below!

I'd got with Wizard (abjurer)/Rogue (Inquisitive) with the Hermit Background (also, insane). Mask and Bruce Almighty mean magical power, Fire Marshal Bill means survival, Riddler and Ace Venture means intelligence (although Lloyd goes against that). If you wanted to go single class, I'd go with Sorcerer (Divine Soul), but not quite as durable unless you take defensive spells.

I'd have a lot of fun playing a Cursed One who has to agree with everything (Yes Man) and can't lie (Liar Liar). :D

Anytime he doesn't go along with something or lie, maybe he has disadvantage on his next roll or something. Or it might continue until he does what he must or tells the truth?

What was the movie where he had the split personality and kept getting beat up. It had Renee Zelwigger (sp) and 3 black sons that saved him.

It would make good roleplaying to be able to smacktalk before a fight and making your PC not a fighter would fit and be fun to start off as. Maybe make him a rogue to still be useful.

Jim Carrey himself won't be one class, each role of his will be a different class.

I need help defining what class each role should have.

What I am thinking is he has a 13 in each stat, a custom background that allows him to get +2 to 1 stat, and +1 to another, he chooses his role at the beginning of each day.
So for example The Mask may get +2 Dex, +1 Cha or something.

As far as the mask goes I would make him a rogue sorcerer and for the riddler be just a rogue but as far as the mask goes you need to remember that he had amnesia after taking the mask off so you may have to incorporate some of the negatives of the mask when he becomes that character.

As for another iconic character of jim Carey's you forgot Truman from the Truman show.

I also forgot the Grinch too! So many possibilities!
 
For the grinch I'd say a hermit blacksmith background and make his class the artificer that just came out if you can find the stats for that. But all in all good luck with this one

Bruce Almighty should be a caster, maybe a cleric. Fits with the god theme and the Jim Party should have a cleric.

Ernie Chip Douglas from Cable Guy should be a Fighter?

And Fire Marshall Bill a Barbarian, because he takes damage and keeps on coming?

The closest I could see thematically for the Mask would be something similiar to the Wild Sorcerer. Something zany and cartoony, able to just make random stuff happen for little to no reason.

You might get away with the Wild MAgic barbarian from a while back, because the Mask was essentially indestructible and no class gets closer than Barbarian.


Riddler you want a Rogue, Inquisitve, Mastermind or Arcane Trickster.

Bruce Almighty Cleric or other divine class like the Divine Soul Sorcerer or the Celestial Warlock.

I'm not familiar enough with the other roles to make a guess at classes for them.
