    Green with Syncnificance

    There are many incarnations of the Green Man, the O.G however as far as I know is the reincarnating sun metaphor (think Jesus/Horus and Hiram Abiff) Osiris.

    The Resurrection theme is present in many of the independent figures linked to the green man. Foliate heads, and masks have served as images for Rome's Bacchus, Egypt's Osiris, Greece's Dionysus, Britain's "The Green Knight" and Jack in the in all of these separate artistic representations of foliate heads, with similar death/rebirth themes spanning millennia of time in Europe, North Africa, and Asia. (Wiki)
    Jim Carrey has played the green man three times by my count. First as a modern magical Loki in 1994's "The Mask". (Thanks Violator and Soundlessdawn for Carrey leads, see comments of Armand Van Helden post)
    One year later he's dancing (with much prancing) around K2 mountaineer Chris O'Donnel ("Vertical Limit") in "Batman Forever". (See "Tunney Trillogy" for O'Donnel K2 syncs)
    The theme peaks in 2000's (K2) snowy mountain featuring Ron Howard film "The Grinch". See previous post (and Al-Noah) for more Carrey sync winks.
    This theme could heat up even further as we learn Carrey stars in another upcoming Dr. Seuss story "Horton Hears a Who".

    You might enjoy this link - looking at the connection between the green man and the burning man. There is probably a lot more to it.

    Don't forget St Patrick and the wearing of the Green, right near the Spring Equinox.

    3/17 is the day of Osiris' death in the Egyptian calendar, clinching St. Paddy's day as a defacto Osiris/Dionysus/Bacchanal.

    3/17's my B-day, mind...

    Horton comes out on 3/14, giving us that magic 17. A 17 cipher was the first number we actually saw in The Number 23.

    Carrey (born 1/17) has a whole host of interesting roles, my favorite being in the Montauk/MindControl/Rebis parable Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind, based on a poem written in - you guessed it, 1717.

    Wow, remember the Johnny Depp candy sync winks, guess what.. Jim Carrey was originally considered to play the role of Willy Wonka. It gets even worse, he also was considered to play Captain Jack Sparrow... wow, what are the chances on that.

    Jack and the Beanstalk or Beans-Talk, Always seems a bit of a Jacob's Ladder cartooned for easy consumption.
    Saw Lions and Lambs with Cruise,Streep,Redford trinity - soldiers are sent to the Karkoram or somewhere near Af-G. They are there to set up 'points' atop strategic mountains.
    2 soldiers get trapped there , 1 wounded, 1 [black]with his leg trapped like Will Smith in I Am Legend { Leg-end] [ Thanks to Bluekush for this at Elluminati's comments] inspiring Hanged Man . In both films they give up their lives.
    The main thing is Cruise sending the soldiers to mountaintops while constructing an elaborate press-release. Soldiers die on high-plateau -Hanged Man style [ and the Hanged man = M, the twin-peaked letter] and become Death .

    According to Michael Tsarion, John the Baptist was known in the Latin translation as "the Green Man".

    It seems that we could go on and on with Carrey. He picks interesting scripts, or they pick him.

    Here's a little more casting goodness from the Wiki:

    "Carrey has auditioned for many movies that ended up being taken by Johnny Depp, films like Edward Scissorhand, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory, although Depp was originally given the role as Count Olaf in the 2004 film Lemony Snickets: A Series of Unfortunate Events but Tim Burton dropped from the movie and so did Depp, so Carrey then auditioned and won the role."
