Were you worried that Jeff Daniels's Emmy win for his work on "The Newsroom" was going to his head? That the long-awaited official sequel to "Dumb and Dumber" would be all serious and boring now that Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels are, like, thespians? Check out this photo (below) that Carrey tweeted of himself and Daniels in full Farrelly Brothers form and breathe a sigh of relief, because they look just as dumb as they did over a decade ago.
Daniels was still clutching his new Emmy on Sunday night when E! asked him about getting "Dumber" for "Dumber and Dumber To": "We're going to party 'til dawn and then I'm going to get on a plane and go to Atlanta and start shooting 'Dumb and Dumber To,'" likening it to "[t]he intellectual free-fall from [Will] MacAvoy to Harry Dunn, imagine if you will."
Daniels added, "There are some things that we're going to do in 'Dumb and Dumber To' that make the toilet scene [in the original] seem lame. Pales in comparison and I can't divulge what, but just that they've topped it. They best thing about it? I get to work with a comedic genius."
That Aaron Sorkin is a real laugh riot! Oh, wait, maybe he meant Jim Carrey. Carry on.
