Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey started shooting 'Dumb And Dumber 2' last week (September 24)
The Farrelly Brothers have shared the first clip of Jeff Daniels as Harry Dunne in the forthcoming Dumb And Dumber sequel.
Last month (August) the directors launched a contest challenging Dumb And Dumber fans to make a Vine recreating a scene from the original film, instructing entrants to “put your own spin on it”. The winner plus a friend would win walk-on roles in the sequel.
Just before the competition deadline expired yesterday (September 30), the directors tried to drum up some last-minute entries by posting a Vine featuring Daniels in character as Dunne. “Hey! Make a little Vine ’cause you’re running out of time!” he urges fence-sitters. Watch the Vine below.

Peter and Bobby Farrelly began filming their eagerly-anticipated sequel, which is officially titled Dumb And Dumber To, in Atlanta last Tuesday (September 24). To mark the start of shooting, Jim Carrey posted a photo of him and Daniels in character as Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne.
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.
