‘Dumb and Dumber 2′ Adds Funnyman Rob Riggle
‘Dumb and Dumber 2‘ recently began production in Georgia, as the first set pics of the reunited Harry (Jeff Daniels) and Lloy (Jim Carrey) have spilled out. In addition to the new flood of casting additions, like ‘The Walking Dead‘ star Laurie Holden, comedian Rob Riggle has now joined in the fun.
As the pair of numbskulls journey to find Harry’s long-lost daughter to donate a kidney for transplant surgery, they’ll encounter handyman Travis and his twin brother Captain Lippencott, both played by Riggle, according to THR. The funnyman joins the already cast Kathleen Turner (playing legendary hose-hound from Cranston Fraida Felcher), Rachel Melvin (Harry’s daughter Penny), Holden (the villainous Adele Pichlow) and Steve Tom (Pichlow’s husband Dr. Pichlow).
Riggle has a load of comedic film and TV stints under his belt, including ‘The Internship,’ ‘The Hangover,’ ’21 Jump Street,’ ‘Modern Family,’ ’30 Rock’ and tons more. Although, his bits usually end up stealing the spotlight, so we’re eager to see what he has in store for us in ‘Dumb and Dumber 2.’ He can also be seen in the upcoming ’22 Jump Street’ and ‘Let’s Be Cops.’
After trekking through development hell, getting dropped by Warner Bros. to then getting a pick-me-up from Universal, ‘Dumb and Dumber 2′ is finally getting on track with a hoped-for release in summer 2014.
