Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels Tweet 'Dumb and Dumber To' Set Photo

Dumb and Dumber To

During the height of Beavis & Butt-Head's popularity in the early '90s, David Letterman gave an interview wherein he extolled the simple joys of coming home, turning on the TV, and being afforded the simple comfort of knowing that no matter how complicated or confusing the world got, the snigger animated duo would still be stupid. It sounds like a strange sentiment, but there's a kernel of truth in there -- and if you need proof, just lay your eyes on this set photo from Dumb and Dumber To, which captures Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels in full-on dumbertude.

Astute viewers will see that the tome Carrey and Daniels are holding in the picture (upside down, natch) is Carrey's new children's book, How Roland Rolls, making this shot a pretty savvy way of promoting two projects at once. Such well-planned acts of social media exploitation are neither dumb nor dumber, but we'll let it slide, simply because it's an unexpected relief to see the reunited co-stars yukking it up again.

Dare we hope that Dumb and Dumber To could help reverse the Farrelly brothers' slide into box office oblivion? It's too soon to tell, but Moviefone reports that Daniels seems fairly confident in the script. "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," he promised. "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."
