The Farrelly brothers are putting the final touches on the Dumb and Dumber To
film’s cast, and they have reportedly added the Marine-turned-funnyman Rob Riggle
to the ensemble. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence
shot a one-day cameo and will also appear as a younger version of Kathleen Turner
An older Fraida Felcher, the woman that Lloyd (Jim Carrey) and Harry (Jeff Daniels) discussed in a hot tub will also appear in the sequel and will be played by Turner himself.
The 23-year-old Oscar winner who is currently also in Atlanta filming The Hunger Games
sequel Mockingjay: Part 1
, had dinner with the Farrellys and Jeff Daniels a week ago (above) and has never hidden the fact that Dumb and Dumber
is basically her favorite movie ever.
“I know every word to Dumb and Dumber, Step Brothers and Anchorman,” she said in an interview (below) with Jimmy Fallon.
On the other side, Riggle has nabbed one of the last major roles — a double gig actually — playing twins, a handyman named Travis and his unstable brother, Captain Lippencott.
Well, that’s cool.
Also starring Rachel Melvin, Brady Bluhm, Laurie Holden
and Steve Tom
— while it doesn’t yet have an official release date — the sequel is likely to hit sometime in 2014.
The story focuses on Lloyd and Harry searching for Harry’s long-lost daughter in order to get a kidney from her. A release date has yet to be announced.
