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.
Lawrence’s involvement in the film broke in The Hollywood Reporter almost immediately.”I was disappointed that we couldn’t keep the cap on that,” says Peter, who had hoped that she was so unrecognizable in the film that audiences would only realize it after the fact. But he’s not too distraught about the reveal. That’s what happens when you put one of the hottest young actresses in your movie. ”She’s still in it and we had a ball and it’s hard to feel bad about the whole thing,” he says.
“She does know every line by the way,” says Peter. “Everything that Jeff Daniels said would make her giggle. There were little things that he did that reminded her of something from the movie. She would challenge us to name any line and she’d tell us the next five lines. She knew them all.”
Dumb and Dumber To is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2014.
