Jim Carrey reads new book to kids at Buckhead Barnes and Noble

Posted: Updated:

Actor Jim Carrey made an appearance in Buckhead on Saturday.

Customers who purchased his book, How Roland Rolls, got a wristband starting at 9 a.m. Saturday morning for the signing.

The comedian, who is in Atlanta filming Dumb and Dumber To, met fans and read his new book at Barnes and Noble on Peachtree Road NE.

How Roland Rolls is a story about a wave named Roland who's afraid that when he hits the beach, his life will be over. But when he gets deep, he's struck by the notion that he's not just a wave — he's the whole big, wide ocean.

Carrey said he came up with the story while he was in Malibu watching the waves crash.

He was extremely exited to read the book and see such a large turnout.

The actor has been very busy filming Dumb and Dumber To over the past few weeks. Carrey said he is taking advantage of the great restaurants that Atlanta offers.

"I'm enjoying the food here. Way too much," said Carrey. "I have rules and they have all been broken."

So far, his favorite spot to eat was Bacchanalia on Howell Mill Road.
