Jeff Daniels recently sat down with E! Online, after winning the Best Actor Emmy for HBO's The Newsroom. Here, the actor confirms that he is headed to Atlanta to start shooting, and that the transformation into Harry Dunn has officially begun.
"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. The intellectual free-fall from [Will] MacAvoy to Harry Dunn, imagine if you will."
He also discusses how the comedy will surpass the original.
"The scariest thing? 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."
The sequel picks up 20 years after the original and has the dimwitted duo searching for their long lost children in hopes of finding a matching kidney.
