Jeff Daniels: "Forget the Dumb and Dumber Toilet Scene, That's Nothing!"

Jeff Daniels has teased a couple of details about the forthcoming Dumb & Dumber sequel, claiming directors Bobby and Peter Farrelly are ready to gross out the audience more than they did with the original's famous 'toilet scene.'

Daniels was on-hand to chat about the sequel after picking up an Emmy award on Sunday, for his altogether more stylish turn as Will McAvoy in Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom. The 58-year-old claimed he was "gonna party 'til dawn and then I'm gonna get on a plane and go to Atlanta and start shooting 'Dumb and Dumber 2."

It prompted several questions about the anticipated sequel, titled Dumb & Dumber To, which is now finally on track after several delays. "The intellectual free-fall from Will McAvoy to Harry Dunne ... imagine if you will," joked Daniels about his not-so-smart Dumb and Dumber character. 

"There are some things we're going to do in 'Dumb and Dumber 2' that make the toilet scene look lame ... pales in comparison. I can't divulge what, just that they've topped it," he added.

On Monday, Peter Farrelly tweeted that the first shot from the new movie was officially in the can. 

According to Variety, the sequel is set twenty years after Harry and Lloyd's last adventure and sees the dim-witted pair receive a letter from their former flame, Fraida Feltcher, claiming that one of them is the father of her child. Kathleen Turner will play Feltcher.

The script has been written by Horrible Bosses scribes John Morris and Sean Anders. A release date is yet to be set.
