It’s time to suit up, Harry and Lloyd-style.
Two new posters for Dumb and Dumber To have been unveiled, and the statement is simple: orange and blue tuxedos never go out of fashion.
Dumb and Dumber superfan Jennifer Lawrence may have scored herself a plum cameo alongside her comedy idols, but she and the rest of us are going to have to wait another year to finally see Dumb and Dumber To.
The sequel to Peter and Bobby Farrelly’s 1994 cult classic will hit theaters Nov. 14, 2014. Universal Pictures announced the release plans Monday.
Peter Farrelly knows how much people love Dumb and Dumber. Of course he’s a little more self-deprecating about it than that, and attributes it more to the fact that it’s just always on television. Still, the 1994 Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels comedy that he created with his brother Bobby was a cultural phenomenon. Has anyone been able to mention Big Gulps or John Denver in the past 20 years without thinking of Lloyd and Harry?
EW spoke to Peter Farrelly, currently shooting the sequel in Atlanta, about two super fans who scored cameos in his movie. One is a guy you’ve never heard of who happened to make a Vine that made the Farrellys laugh. The other is Oscar-winning actress and proclaimed Dumb and Dumber expert Jennifer Lawrence.
• Comedian Rob Riggle (21 Jump Street) will take on dual roles in Dumb and Dumber To, where he’ll play twins Travis and Captain Lippencott. Travis is a handyman and Captain is…”unstable.” He’ll be joining Dumb and Dumber stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, and new additions Kathleen Turner and Laurie Holden. Directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly are currently shooting the movie in Atlanta. Jennifer Lawrence will also appear as a younger version of Turner in a cameo role. [THR]
• Justified’s Walton Goggins will join Inside Llewyn Davis’s Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund in Mojave, about a suicidal artist who flees to the desert and encounters a homicidal drifter. William Monahan (London Boulevard) is directing the movie off of his own script. [Deadline]

• Rob Lowe continues to poke fun at himself and his scandalous past. The 80′s heart throb has joined the cast of Sex Tape, starring Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel as a married couple who attempt to film themselves and then lose the tape. Lowe will not be participating in the tape — he’ll play the part of a high-powered CEO who comes across the tape in the Jake Kasdan-directed comedy. [Deadline]
The Dumb and Dumber sequel has had its share of problems: Being dropped by Warner Bros. Being sued by everybody. But still it endures, like some kind of purely metaphorical decapitated bird with its head held on by scotch tape. And just like that decapitated bird, Dumb and Dumber To will amuse blind children everywhere — a fact made clear when returning star Jim Carrey posted a photo of himself getting back into character as Lloyd Christmas.

• Hollywood veteran Kurt Russell is in talks to join the seventh installment of the Fast & Furious franchise in an undisclosed part for director James Wan (The Conjuring). We kind of hope he’ll just be playing Snake Plissken. The famously private actor has been somewhat absent from movies recently. 2007′s Death Proof was his last high-profile role. Russell has a few more projects in the works including the Jay Baruchel-starring comedy The Art of the Steal, and Bone Tomahawk, a Western with Peter Sarsgaard and Jennifer Carpenter. [Variety]
Two producers of the original Dumb and Dumber who are being sued to be kept off the upcoming sequel responded with a legal cross-complaint of their own against Red Granite Pictures. Earlier this month, Red Granite filed suit to exclude Brad Krevoy and Steve Stabler from Dumb and Dumber To, the sequel Red Granite is making with Universal, claiming the duo no longer had any contractual rights to the project after it was dropped by Warner Bros. and New Line in June.
