This morning, Dumb and Dumber stars Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels took to Twitter to show off the first pictures from the set of their new film Dumb and Dumber To, the long awaited sequel its predecessor released in 1994.
First to hit the Twitterverse was Jim Carrey.
How Roland Rolls comes out TODAY but it may be a little too sophisticated for Lloyd and Harry! Yep… THEY’RE BAAAAA… http://t.co/bhrYxNPKbv

Carrey used the tweet as a two-fold opportunity, the first of which was to promote the release of his new children’s book How Roland Rolls, a story about a wave that fears his life will come to an end when he reaches the shore. Secondly, he unleashed on the world the very first photo of Harry and Lloyd as filming begins on the new Dumb and Dumber film.
Jeff Daniels was not far behind Carrey.
Fresh off of his Emmy win for Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his work on the HBO Series The Newsroom, Daniels tweeted his excitement.

The film will take place 20 years after the end of the original Dumb and Dumber film. Harry and Lloyd set out on an adventure to track down a long lost child that Harry never knew he had in the hopes of gaining a new kidney.
Brothers Bobby and Peter Farrelly will be returning to direct the long-awaited sequel.
It has been a long time since we have seen the lovable dimwits Harry and Lloyd. Will the dynamic comedic duo be able to keep up the laughs in the new film? After what Jeff Daniels revealed to E! News after this Emmy win, I think we will be in for a hilarious time.
There are some things that’s 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.” he told E! News.
There is a part of me that is just too scared to ask how. I guess we’ll all just have to watch and find out; if you dare, that is.
