Jennifer Lawrence to make cameo appearance in 'Dumb And Dumber 2'
'Hunger Games' actress will play a younger version of Kathleen Turner's character Fraida Feltcher
Jennifer Lawrence is to make a cameo in the forthcoming Dumb And Dumber sequel.
Directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly started shooting the sequel, officially titled Dumb And Dumber To, in Atlanta on Tuesday (September 24) and Lawrence has since spent a day on set filming a small guest appearance, The Hollywood Reporter says.
Lawrence will apparently play a younger version of Kathleen Turner's character Fraida Feltcher, who was mentioned in the original Dumb And Dumber film as a "babe who worked for the tractor company". Feltcher has a romantic history with both Jeff Daniels' Harry and Jim Carrey's Lloyd.
Dumb And Dumber To will follow Harry and Lloyd as they embark on a road trip to find Harry's long-lost daughter. The cast also includes The Walking Dead's Laurie Holden and Brady Bluhm, who appeared in the original as Billy in 4C, the blind boy to whom Harry and Lloyd sold their headless bird, Petey.
The Farrelly Brothers have collaborated on the script with Bennet Yellin, who also co-wrote the original, as well as screenwriters Sean Anders and John Morris (We're The Millers) and Mike Cerrone (The Three Stooges). Discussing the film's script earlier this week (September 22), Daniels said the writing team have "topped" the infamous toilet scene from the original Dumb And Dumber with some even grislier scenarios.
The original Dumb And Dumber came out in 1994 and starred Carrey and Daniels as dimwitted friends on a road trip. A prequel called Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd followed in 2003 but did not feature the original stars or any involvement from the Farrelly Brothers. Dumb And Dumber To has no official release date yet but is due out next year (2014) to mark the 20th anniversary of the original film.
