Jim Carrey is all about moving forward when it comes to his film career.
ET's Keltie Knight spoke with the 57-year-old actor at CinemaCon at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Thursday, where he talked about all of his beloved 1994 films -- Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask and Dumb and Dumber -- celebrating their 25-year anniversary this year.
But when asked if he was bringing back any of his iconic characters, Carrey said it wasn't happening.
"Oh, I'm bringing nothing back," Carrey tells ET. "No, no, no, I'm moving forward."
Carrey did do a sequel to Ace Ventura: Pet Detective a year later with 1995's Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, and he also reunited with Jeff Daniels for 2014's Dumb and Dumber To, which was a sequel to Dumb and Dumber 20 years later.
"The only thing is, like, you get a lot of pressure from people you know to bring things back and stuff, and then you do and they go, 'OK, I just wanted you to do something,'" Carrey notes.
These days, he's keeping busy with original projects.
"I'm doing tons, yeah," Carrey says. "But all new."
Carrey's latest project is the live-action Sonic the Hedgehog -- based on the popular Sega video game franchise -- which comes out on Nov. 8. The actor is playing Sonic's nemesis, Dr. Ivo Robotnik.
"I'm always animated, OK?" Carrey jokes about his new role. "So, there's really very little difference between that and real life for me."
"I spent a lot of time in my room [as a kid]. A lot of time with my sketching and things like that," Carrey shares. "I won some art exhibitions when I was a little kid. I always had a talent for it ... it was a wonderful refuge for me."
"The creativity just kind of spills over the edges, and these different kind of modes try to catch it," he adds of turning to art as a release. "There's little difference for me, between doing a painting or a sculpture and doing an acting part, so you're sculpting from the inside out."
As for currently being in Vegas for CinemaCon, Carrey tells ET that he's most looking forward to enjoying all the best food Sin City has to offer. Gambling, however, isn't in the cards for him.
"I'm not a big gambler," he says. "The last time I played blackjack I was up 10 grand and then the dude with the clipboard came out and ruined my vibe completely. And that's what they do. Watch out. When the guy with the clipboard comes out, tip the dealer, and leave."
ET spoke to Carrey last September, and he did express interest in reviving the acclaimed '90s sketch comedy series In Living Color. Carrey was a memorable cast member on the show alongside such stars as Jamie Foxx, David Alan Grier and Marlon and Shawn Wayans. Jennifer Lopez was also a dancer in the in-house dance troupe on the show, the Fly Girls.
"That show really needs to happen! That show needs to exist," Carrey said when asked about possibly bringing In Living Color back to TV. "Especially now, man. There's so much to eat up and spit out, so I'd love to see it reconstitute itself in another form."
